EOSC Declaration


26 October 2017

Today, the Commission makes the EOSC Declaration ( 72 KB) available to all scientific stakeholders, for their endorsement and commitments to the realisation of the EOSC by 2020.

The Declaration emerged from the EOSC Summit of 12 June, where more than 80 key scientific stakeholders showed a strong sense of commitment, dedication and intellectual rigour with respect to the implementation of the EOSC. We agreed that the EOSC is a truly common European project that we cannot afford to fail.

Overall, response has been plenty, positive and strong. Until today, 40 scientific stakeholders have endorsed the principles of the Declaration. A list of first signatories () has already signed up to play a role in the EOSC 'coalition of doers'.

We strongly encourage you and your institution to 1) to endorse the principles of the Declaration, and 2) to commit to take some of the specific actions forward.

Many of the signatories, thirty-one as of today, also committed to one or more actions to implement the principles of the EOSC Declaration. The Action List ( 54 KB) accompanying the EOSC Declaration already features several commitments.
