EERAdata actively participates in initiatives and events shaping the open science landscape


Second EOSC-Nordic Policy Workshop

EERAdata participated in the Second EOSC-Nordic Policy Workshop which was held online on March 9, 2021. EOSC-Nordic is a project funded by Horizon 2020 fostering developments between Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Netherlands, and Sweden to support and develop open science and open innovation.

The workshop discussed how the strengthened collaboration between the Nordics and the Baltics can inspire the implementation of EOSC. Part of the project is an automated assessment of the FAIR state of affairs of 100 nordic databases. Interestingly, the findings are similar to research carried out by EERAdata in the energy sector showing that many databases fail to comply with FAIR principles.

Another point of discussion was the question on how to organize service provision between partners and outside of the consortium. This parallels the discussion in EERAdata on where to anchor FAIR standards and tools in the future.

2nd online workshop of the Battery2030+ Initiative

EERAdata also took part in the second online workshop organized by Battery2030+ on March 12, 2021.

Battery2030+ is trying to harmonize the efforts on research data management and to develop guidelines and standards for experimental and theoretical data generation and processing. In this meeting, three journal editors presented their open data policies, and some working groups were promoted to discuss future action points in data management.
