6 August 2019 | 11:00-12:00 CEST

Description and scope

This webinar presents initial proposals from EOSC-hub for the EOSC Federating Core and its governance and sustainability which arte captured in a paper. The Briefing Paper proposes an open and participatory approach to the definition and provisioning of the EOSC Federating Core based on existing capabilities of e-Infrastructures and research infrastructures at national and European level. The paper puts forward a proposed definition of the Federating Core of the EOSC and proposals for its governance and sustainability. The initial proposals for the definition and organisation of the EOSC Federating Core capabilities have been developed from the recommendations of the HLEG EOSC final report and the EOSCpilot project, as well as from research communities from a broad range of scientific disciplines within and outside the EOSC-hub consortium. The Federating Core includes the technical, human, policy and resource-related elements which are needed to allow research-targetted services to operate.
