The EOSC Association was established in July 2020 as a not-for-profit international Association (AISBL) in Belgium. With already over 210 member and observer organisations from across Europe, the Association represents a single voice for the advocacy and representation for the broader EOSC Stakeholder community in Europe, promoting alignment of EU research policy and priorities. An essential role of the Association is to continuously develop the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) which will influence future EOSC activities at institutional, national and EU level.
Just recently, EOSC has been granted special status as a co-programmed European Partnership. This new European Partnership status will fortify EOSC with European funding of almost €500 million and an in-kind contribution of the partners of also €500 million. The aim is to improve the accessing, sharing, and especially the combining and reusing of research data across borders and scientific disciplines. For more information about EOSC, visit https://www.eosc.eu/.
The Association has an obligation to monitor and report against Key Performance Indictors (KPIs) which are described within the SRIA and associated Memorandum of Understanding documents which can be reviewed here: https://www.eosc.eu/documents.
