The Croatian EOSC national event will be held on March 30, 2023. This whole-day event is organised by University Computing Centre SRCE, which is a Mandated organisation in Croatia. The event aims to encourage and support coordination between policymakers, research funding organisations, research performing organisations, service providers, and the community in Open Science, supporting the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the National Open Science Cloud Initiative.
In the first session of the program, representatives from the European Commission, the EOSC Association, the EOSC Management Board, the Ministry of Science and Education, and the mandated organisation will present the priorities and activities necessary for stronger implementation of EOSC. In the continuation of the program, we will present examples of the best practices in Croatia in the field of open science from the perspectives of researchers, financiers, and policymakers, as well as progress on the adoption of a national open science plan and the establishment of the Croatian Open Science Cloud.
We will end the tripartite event with the high-level panel “What Needs to Happen Next in Croatia” in which we will discuss the prerequisites and needs for strengthening open science and the implementation of EOSC in Croatia (at the level of national and institutional policies and legislation, infrastructure, education and practical applications in research). The participants are Antica Čulina, a researcher at Ruđer Bošković Institute, David Smith, Director of the Ruđer Bošković Institute, Dubravko Majetić, Vice-rector for Science, Research and Postgraduate Studies at the University of Zagreb, and Lea Lazzarich, director of University library Rijeka. The moderator of the panel will be Zoran Bekić, advisor to the director of SRCE.
