The Open Science Cloud offers researchers from all disciplines seamless, open access to the advanced digital capabilities, resources and expertise they need to collaborate and to carry out data- and computing-intensive science. Secure and trustworthy, the Open Science Cloud engages researchers in governing, managing and preserving resources for everyone’s benefit. The Open Science Cloud is an open, service-driven endeavour, inclusive of all stakeholders. Governed as a commons, it leverages two decades of public and private investment in e-infrastructures for the benefit of scientific research and innovation.

The “EGI Strategy 2015-2020: Enabling Collaborative Data and Compute Intensive Science” is now published and available for public consultation. The EGI Strategy document is the fruit of an intensive work lead by the Strategy and Policy Team, in concertation with the EGI Council and the Executive Board. The result is a concise summary of EGI’s positioning in the evolving e-Infrastructure landscape.


Europe’s researchers have access to super-fast networks, common data storage facilities, and shared computing resources. The challenge now is to link them all together into a single science cloud.


The future development of the European Research Area (ERA) was discussed at the conference A new start for Europe: opening up to an ERA of innovation that was attended by more than 500 participants. The conference will cover a broad range of issues including:the results and outcome of the ‘Science 2.0: Science in Transition’ consultation; the ERA Roadmap; open labour market for researchers; building up an innovation ecosystem; future markets.


The European Research ministers converged on considering the development of a European Open Science Agenda under the European Research Area. In its conclusions, the Council called for open, data-intensive and networked research and emphasised the importance of developing e-infrastructures.

EGI-InSPIRE: building the digital European Research Area from the ground up. The final report describes the activities undertaken during the span of the EGI-InSPIRE project (May 2010 – December 2014). The report focuses on the project’s achievements and outcomes, reports on the use and dissemination of the foreground of the project and on the project performance and impact. On the web-site of DIGITAL AGENDA FOR EUROPE (A Europe 2020 Initiative) is published the small note about this event, which we give completely.  The reference to the report of EGI is below given.


The Open Science Commons is built on: e-Infrastructure Commons, an idea developed by the e-IRG to encompass integrated services and interoperable infrastructures across Europe and the world; Open Data Commons, where observations, results and applications can be made available for scientific research and for anyone to use and reuse; Knowledge Commons, in which communities have shared ownership of knowledge and co-create solutions with access to expertise and the technical support they need to exploit state-of-the-art digital services.
