The promotion of cutting-edge solutions for networking, advanced computing, management of big data, trust and identity, open scholarship is paramount to leverage existing investments, avoid duplication and ultimately increase sustainability by supporting a larger number of researchers.

However, various challenges are being faced, like the ability to reach out to an increasing number of researchers and innovators, aggregate demand and the offer from multiple providers. This can be a demanding activity, especially in the case of small and highly distributed research teams. Fortunately, EOSC provides an opportunity for more coordination and integration of outreach activities currently conducted in isolation. This interactive session will discuss the different engagement activities & strategies of organisations involved in supporting use of national and European e-Infrastructures/Research Infrastructures. The session will feature presentations and discussions highlighting national and European opportunities of coordination and collaboration.

Participants will have the opportunity to provide input to the Cooperation Agreement that will involve e-Infrastructures and in particular the future H2020 EINFRA-12 projects EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE-Advance involving EGI, EUDAT, INDIGO and OpenAIRE.

This session addresses Research (e-)Infrastructure managers, research collaboration managers and digital infrastructure providers.
