Open Science Policy in Europe: state of play and EGI contribution
- Eva Méndez (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Chair OSPP Mandate 2 )
Over the last decade, the discourse on open science has grown considerably and has become a primary topic among the various actors involved in research production and dissemination. The EC has played a key role in mobilising the European research community towards defining policies and adapting more open practices. This session aims to present the state of play on Open Science policy in Europe based on the last report from the Open Science Policy Platform and to highlight the key contribution from the EGI Federation in implementing Open Science. The presentations will be followed by position statements and a Q&A session to reflect on the way forward.
Following this session, there are two sessions on the topic of the Global Open Science Cloud.
The presentation will provide an overview of the Open Science Policy Platform with a summary of the activities covered in the 2 mandates.

This presentation will provide an update on the EGI PCIs and will prepare the floor to discuss what we can do next.
