EOSCpilot 1st stakeholder engagement event

Bruxelles, Belgique

EOSCpilot & DI4R, together !

The EOSCpilot project is excited to announce its 1st Stakeholder Engagement event, which will take place at the SQUARE in Brussels on the 28th and 29th November 2017.

This promises to be an extremely interactive gathering of representatives and experts from the numerous stakeholder groups that drive the project, enabling them to have their voice in the first phase of development of the future European Open Science Cloud.


Both days will include plenary sessions with high-level policy and governance representatives. The programme also foresees a series of truly interactive parallel sessions to analyse the specific plans and actions for the evolution of the five pillars of the project : governance, policy, interoperability, skills and services.
