EOSC Future project

The EOSC Future project is organising a major in-person workshop to train the scientific community about European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) capabilities. EOSCwill give European researchers access to a wide web of FAIR data and related services. With a focus on the Western Balkans and Ukraine, this event will build on the work undertaken through the NI4OS project, The project ended in January 2023 and produced a comprehensive set of training materials. The training workshop is part of on-going commitment to raise uptake of EOSC's services, data and software.

EOSC Future training workshop

This workshop will take place from 11-13 September 2023 in the resort town of Ohrid in North Macedonia, on the shores of Lake Ohrid. It will welcome 100 participants at the Metropol Hotel, where parallel sessions will cover different topics related to EOSC. Experts from a wide cross section of the EOSC landscape, including the EOSC Future project itself, will provide the training. This workshop will be of interest to a wide variety of stakeholders, particularly researchers based in the Western Balkans and Ukraine who want to harness the power of EOSC for their own work or share their work related to EOSC, whether that is data, services or software. Participants in research support or funding roles are also most welcome. In all cases, the aim will be to equip participants with EOSC’s state-of-the-art ongoing development. If you are an individual from the Western Balkans or Ukraine and wish to learn more about the possibilities through EOSC, then this is an ideal opportunity for you!
