EOSC in the Nordics Workshop: from policy to practice at the NeIC 2022 conference
The workshop will bring together European and regional level policy makers, representatives from the Nordic countries active in the EOSC governance (EOSC Steering Board and EOSC Association) and in the EOSC national structures and the key stakeholders (service providers, users, experts) contributing to the EOSC uptake in the region. Representatives from the other EOSC regional projects (EOSC Pillar, NI4OS, EOSC Synergy) will be also invited to contribute to the discussion.
The workshop will revolve around two main themes:
- EOSC coordination, policies and engagement in the Nordic countries: what is the impact of EOSC on the region so far and what are the expectations for the future? What are the existing barriers for a full EOSC adoption? What are the necessary steps to make EOSC part of the national roadmaps?
- LUMI: a model for EOSC?: The Nordic countries have made significant investments in a new computing and AI infrastructure (LUMI). Can EOSC benefit from LUMI? What are the plans to build potential synergies between LUMI (EuroHPC) and EOSC? Can the LUMI business and funding model be replicated in EOSC?
The workshop will build upon the key outcomes and messages from the two previous policy workshops organised by EOSC Nordic (February 2020, March 2021).
