EOSC-A Mandated Organisation
EOSC Steering Board representatives
The ministerial decree n.268 of 28-02-2022 establishes the Piano Nazionale per la Scienza Aperta – PNSA – (Italian Plan for Open Science) addressing policy on scientific publications, research data, research evaluation, open science and open data models for public health. On 14-03-2023 a work-group was established by directorial decree, to draw a document on implementation of the PNSA. Explicit compliance with the open science rules is mandatory in MUR research grants.
- Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure (ICDI)
The National structure Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure (ICDI) was created in 2019, one of the four founding members of the EOSC-A, acting as a forum among representatives of major Italian Research Infrastructures and e-Infrastructures, with the aim of promoting synergies and common strategies at the national level and optimising Italian contributions to European and global challenges including the EOSC. The Consortium GARR (Federico Ruggieri), being part of the ICDI as well as acting as Mandated Organisation in the EOSC-A, connects a number of stakeholders including 22 Members and 4 Observers, and provides the ultra-broadband network dedicated to the Italian research and education community. Several ICDI members are also part of the EOSC Advisory Groups. The current ICDI profile mainly consists of Research Performing Organisations, aiming to include Service Providers in future.
The Open Science policies are defined in the PNSA (2022), but need operational rules to be implemented. To this end a work-group has been setup by MUR, with such mandate.
To foster coordination at the national level, ICDI recently launched task forces dedicated to OS practices in the Italian community, including:
- Italian Federated Cloud Platform Task Force (FCP-IT), launched in June 2020, aims to develop a strategy and identify adequate technical solutions to achieve the creation of a federated cloud dedicated to research on a national scale, and to propose itself as a model also at the European level.
- Italian Competence Centre for EOSC Task Force (CC-IT), approved in July 2020, aims to create a national Competence Centre that can act as a reference for the Italian community and a platform to federate, coordinate and further disseminate the existing competences within Research bodies, Infrastructures and Universities that are part of the Italian Open Science community.
