Welcome to 2023 and the EOSC Association’s first newsletter of the new year! January will see a widening of the EOSC Partnership with the launch of six new EOSC-related Horizon Europe projects. Meanwhile, the EC’s call for expressions of interest to participate in the procurement of the EOSC Core platform and Exchange remains open through the end of the month. We also have several activities to report on from December that have helped to set the agenda for the coming year. The EOSC-A Board and Secretariat held a joint face-to-face meeting to move the Association’s priorities forward, the Partnership Board held its fourth meeting, and the Task Forces and the EOSC Steering Board have each published new papers for your consideration. The first order of business, however, is to invite you to please SAVE THE DATE: the in-person-only GA #6 will be held in Brussels 22-23 May, and we hope to see as many of you there as possible. Happy new year!
