EC adopts Implementation Roadmap for the European Science Cloud
On 14 March 2018, the European Commission adopted the Implementation Roadmap for the European Science Cloud (EOSC). The document is based on extensive stakeholder consultations and describes the possible tax and financing mechanisms for the EOSC. By bundling existing platforms, databases, etc. into a pan-European research data infrastructure, the use of data will be simplified and fragmentation eliminated. The document further identifies six action lines necessary for the implementation of the EOSC, namely architecture, data, services, access & interfaces, rules and governance. Especially with regard to the latter action line, the roadmap presents a governance framework and a governance structure and will serve as a basis for further consultation with the Member States, the European Parliament and other stakeholders.
