European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Declaration

Publié le 27 octobre 2017, par Thérèse Hameau

Today [26 October 2017], the Commission makes the EOSC Declaration (PDF icon 72 KB) available to all scientific stakeholders, for their endorsement and commitments to the realisation of the EOSC by 2020.

The Declaration emerged from the EOSC Summit of 12 June, where more than 80 key scientific stakeholders showed a strong sense of commitment, dedication and intellectual rigour with respect to the implementation of the EOSC. We agreed that the EOSC is a truly common European project that we cannot afford to fail.


We strongly encourage you and your institution to 1) to endorse the principles of the Declaration, and 2) to commit to take some of the specific actions forward.


By endorsing the principles of the Declaration, stakeholders signal their intention to be involved in the making of the EOSC, for instance by taking specific action, by joining the Governance Board, by providing inputs via the annual stakeholder forum, or again by joining consortia to implement the EOSC via Horizon 2020. Necessarily, we must all be on the same sheet to work together in an inclusive, transparent and accountable way. Endorsement of the Declaration is a prerequisite for joint work on the implementation of the initiative.
