EOSC Steering Board representatives

Public research is organised under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science which manages and monitors the Danish National Strategy for Open Access as well as the National Strategy for FAIR Research Data Management. Denmark engages with European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in order to allow the national research communities to take advantages of and add to the possibilities offered by the EOSC as a web of FAIR research data and services. There are Danish universities and organisations participating in EOSC projects, such as in Skills4EOSC, FAIR-IMPACT and EOSC-Nordic. Danish e-infrastructure Consortium (DeiC) is Denmark’s Mandated Organisation in the EOSC Association. It supports and facilitates the engagement of the Danish universities with EOSC, helps to ensure strategic alignment between EOSC’s implementation and national strategies, and makes sure Danish viewpoints are heard within the EOSC Association.

EOSC Denmark Coordination Forum

The objective of the EOSC Denmark Coordination Forum is to collect, share and use knowledge about EOSC nationally in order to integrate the EOSC in the research infrastructure, services and other support initiatives build up and provided for research in Denmark. The Forum is coordinated by DeiC. The main priorities (top 3) of the Forum are:

  • Engaging stakeholders at national level into EOSC.
  • Offering a channel to connect the national stakeholders with the EOSC.
  • Coordinating EOSC activities at national level.

Open Science policy at a national level is mainly coordinated by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science. Since June 2012, the public sector funds and foundations in Denmark have a common Open Access policy. Based on Denmark’s National Strategy for Open Access adopted in June 2018 the goals and requirements of OA were tightened. The national FAIR RDM Strategy serves as policy with the respect the EU Open Data Directive.
