The joint position paper presented in the first session defines the Open Science Cloud to be publicly funded & governed. "A publicly funded and publicly governed Open Science Cloud will guarantee persistence and sustainability, and ensure that outcomes are driven by scientific excellence and societal needs rather than profit. This “commons” approach, welcoming partnership with private-sector actors while driven by the public good, will encourage the development of innovative services that are conducive to the future of Open Science, while guaranteeing the long-term, persistent care of resources.” A group of panelists and the audience will be asked to address the following questions: (1) What needs to be governed in Open Science Cloud? Policies, processes, funding...? (2) Who has to take care of the Open Science Cloud, who should feel responsible? Who are actors? Scientific community, institutions, funding bodies, governments,...? (3) How do you foresee options for structuring the governance of the open science cloud? what we can learn from other federated infrastructures such as the Internet? (4) How, in what form, can we ensure the involvement and participation of the researchers and any other stakeholders to steer the evolution of the Open Science Cloud? (5) Possible business models of the Open Science Cloud for sustainability? The session will help defining points of consensus and/or disagreement on: - Whom to act on what through the Open Science Cloud governance - Options for and principles of the governance - Ideas and areas of development for the Open Science Cloud governance PRESENTER Sergio Andreozzi, Strategy and Policy Manager, EGI.eu PANELISTS (1) Matthew Dovey, Jisc and UK Government Cabinet Office Open Standards Board (2) David Foster, Deputy Head of IT, CERN (3) Michael Symonds, ATOS, Principal Solutions Architect, and Helix Nebula Supply Coordinator (4) Dean Flanders, Digital ERA Forum WG on the Open Science Cloud (5) Yannis Ioannidis, ESFRI representative to the e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (e-IRG), and an expert in the Programme Committee on Research Infrastructures within the European Commission's Horizon2020 RAPPORTEUR: Sergio Andreozzi
