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.
