Welcome to our session on Sustainable Exploitation Pathways within the EOSC Focus WP4 framework.
Our main goal is to integrate the developments of HE INFRAEOSC projects into the EOSC-landscape monitoring activities. So far, we’ve achieved two significant milestones:
- Formation of the HE Impact Working Group: This group focuses on discussing EOSC’s current developments and fostering synergies and productive collaborations.
- Launch of the EOSC Macro-roadmap: This roadmap plots the initial results from various projects against the SRIA activity areas and will be updated with new results and impact case studies.
Our next step is to support INFRAEOSC projects in evaluating their EOSC-related impacts. We’re excited to introduce the “Sustainable Exploitation Pathways to Impact” session at the upcoming EOSC Winter School 2024, where we’ll test and discuss a new tool: the “Sustainable Exploitation Planning tool.”
Join us for an engaging and interactive workshop where we dive into the essentials of sustainability. Our session is uniquely structured to focus on two dynamic areas: first, we’ll collaboratively explore the critical sustainability needs of projects to ensure they deliver lasting impact. Then, we’ll shift gears to gather your valuable insights on our preliminary toolkit design, a resource crafted to enhance project sustainability. This workshop is about active participation and hands-on involvement. It’s an ideal platform for INFRAEOSC Project Coordinators, WP Leaders, Communication and Engagement Officers, and Business Developers to come together, share experiences, and contribute to shaping tools that matter in our field. Let’s make this session productive, insightful, and a stepping stone for sustainable project success.
Our primary aim for the EOSC Winter School is to refine an impact assessment methodology for HE projects. This will be based on the feedback we receive during the workshop and aligned with the EOSC Partnership Specific Impact Pathways. Key elements of this methodology will include:
- Defining KER-specific impact dimensions and objectives
- Identifying the resources to sustain the KER’s journey towards impact;
- Modelling the KER-specific process that will lead to impact;
- Adopting sustainability and impact indicators to monitor and evaluate the process.
By the end of this session, we aim to develop:
- A comprehensive methodology for self-assessing the sustainability of projects’ KERs.
- A clear path towards delivering impactful projects.
