HNSciCloud contributes to the panel on "Principles of engagement for EOSC"

How European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will be governed is being designed now. EOSC pilot project, in charge of trialing and designing a stakeholder-driven governance framework for EOSC, is inviting research policy makers, research funders, service providers and scientists-researchers to take part in the debate and plan of the future EOSC. A workshop on this theme, 2nd EOSCpilot Governance Development Forum workshop, was organised on the 2nd and 3rd of October, 2017 in Tallinn, in conjunction with the e-Infrastructures Reflection Group Workshop under the auspices of the Estonian EU Presidency of the European Union.

In this event Bob Jones, director of CERN, was invited to ​participated in the panel on "Principles of engagement for EOSC from users’ and service providers’ point of view" to contribute to the development of the EOSC governance framework informing audience of principles of engagement with commercial providers as CERN is doing in HNSciCloud.

This panel was designed to contribute to a task that is under work in EOSCpilot to investigate and analyse the organizational principles of Engagement for scientific users (organizational level) and service providers in the EOSC.  A major objective of this task is to identify conflicting organizational principles of Engagement between stakeholders.

Bob Jone's contribution was taken on-board as part of the workshop summary and will be used to structure engagement with commercial providers in EOSC.
