EOSC FAIR Working Group (External organisation)

Activity: Membership typesMembership of committee


The EOSC FAIR working group will provide recommendations on the implementation of Open and FAIR practices within the EOSC. It addresses cross-disciplinary interoperability, gather requirements relevant to the EOSC services, and advise the EOSC Executive and Governance Boards on FAIR-related matters.

The mandate to establish working groups is found in the Commission decision C (2018) 5552, adopted on 27 August 2018 – “Setting up the Expert Group - Executive Board of the European Open Science Cloud (‘EOSC’) and laying down rules for its financing”, in particular, Article 2.2.

The set-up of these working groups has been carried out in consideration of the EOSC stakeholder-sourced recommendations by the last High-Level Expert Group on the EOSC in its final report; Prompting an EOSC in Practice, and the Commission FAIR Data Expert Group’s report; Turning FAIR into reality. The working groups and its feedback mechanisms will ensure the involvement of EOSC stakeholders and key actors in the governance of the science cloud.
