Spain and Portugal Tripartite Event

Spain and Portugal EOSC Tripartite Event

Faro, Portugal

Spain and Portugal have strong links in Research Infrastructures and especially in the e-Infrastructures. The setup of the IBERGRID initiative and the strong links on research networks have strengthened the collaboration among Spanish and Portuguese research institutions. This joint session on EOSC tries to build bridges between the Spanish and Portuguese research centres focused on the Open Science commons and will also serve to reinforce the national collaboration.

The workshop aims at showcasing success stories and best practices, raising awareness of the EOSC concept, sharing training opportunities and identifying collaborations and reinforcing the Spanish and Portuguese EOSC ecosystem, especially focusing on the future opportunities in the frame of the HEU.

The workshop is open to researchers, e-infrastructure providers, Research Infrastructures centres and policy stakeholders in the frame of the EOSC. It will bring together members of the EOSC Association and the EOSC Steering Board, Open Science Policy groups, researchers from EOSC projects from the INFRAEOSC H2020 and Destination 2 HEU, and other stakeholders in the area.

Presentations will be organised by invitation, and the tentative topics will cover:

  • Institutional presentation from authorities setting up the scene.
  • The EOSC Tripartite, with a report from the EOSC-Steering Board and the EOSC-AISBL.
  • Carrusel presentation of the EOSC-A Iberian members and observers.
  • Selected talks from the EOSC-A task forces.
  • Lighting talks from EOSC projects.
  • Invited talk from relevant international initiatives.
  • A collaborative session through electronic means.
