11 April 2019 - 14:30 to 16:00

Prague, Czech Republic

Recognised for its vital role in the procurement of commercial services for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), OCRE will be featured in the EOSC-hub Week 2019 on 11 April 2019 at the Vienna House Diplomat in Prague, Czech Republic.

OCRE Project Director Andres Steijaert will be presenting the OCRE project in the part B of the session: The role of procurement in the EOSC where he will give a presentation titled, "OCRE: stimulating the uptake of commercial digital services in European research"

OCRE will also be presenting a project poster for the poster parade on 11 April 2018 at 11 AM CET. 

As the flagship event of the EOSC-hub project, the EOSC-hub Week 2019 brings together both present and future service providers and users of the EOSC. 

The event comes just after the recent launch of the EOSC in November which saw EOSC-hub's Catalogue of Services incorporated into the new EOSC. With the EOSC now live and in its early stages, the challenge now is to enrich EOSC's service offering to cover all the gaps in research services and increase uptake by the research community. This is what makes EOSC-hub Week 2019 timely.

During the event, an open call for users and service providers will be launched. Stronger involvement from the ESFRI communities, the HPC Centers of Excellence and the public sector will also be sought through three interactive sessions dedicated to discuss how EOSC can make a difference for these different target groups. Industry will also play a relevant role through the Industry and EOSC session featuring the joint presence of the EOSC-hub Digital Innovation Hub and OCRE

The latest developments across the EOSC-sphere will also be discussed and analysed within several sessions dedicated to various thematic areas such as Earth Observation, Life Sciences, Physics and Astrosciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences.

The event won't just cover pan-European EOSC matters. Local developments and initiatives will also be put on the spotlight with a session on National Initiatives.
