Benefits of EOSC and international collaboration in service development for Finnish Academia

The FAIR National Roadshow series is visiting Finland on the 17th of May 2024!

The event will be virtually hosted by the CSC, in Finland.

This event will bring together the Finnish Academia to learn about the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and its impact on the national level. The programme is structured in two parts. First, the participants will get a comprehensive overview of what EOSC is all about and the status of its implementation complemented by a presentation by University of Eastern Finland, the first Finnish research performance organisation that joined the EOSC Association. The second part will explore national services for research and the important role of international collaboration in developing them to implement the EOSC vision. Lastly, the participants will be informed about FAIR-IMPACT engagement opportunities. Ample time is reserved for discussion.
