Dear Members and friends of the EOSC Association,
Happy New Year and best wishes for a healthy, prosperous, and peaceful 2024!
Welcome to the EOSC-Association’s first newsletter of the new year. January will bring more opportunities for collaboration with the launch of seven new EOSC-related Horizon Europe projects.
The future of the EOSC Federation and the role of EOSC Nodes will be discussed with the community through various actions in 2024, starting off with two online webinars for our members on January 16th and 17th.
The news from the European Commission, with the contracts awarded by the end of the year 2023, anticipates a year of progress for the implementation of SIMPL, supporting data access and interoperability among European data spaces. The latest meeting of the EOSC Partnership Board provided an opportunity to discuss the next steps for engaging the community in analysing the governance and funding models, the main topic for the European Tripartite Event on April 16th, under the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The meeting also enabled considerations on stakeholder involvement at country and institutional levels, a key driver of action in 2024.
We also want to invite you to please SAVE THE DATE: the in-person-only GA #8 will be held on May 27th-28th.
Other highlights include our interview with York Sure-Vetter from Germany’s Mandated Organisation, NFDI.
