ABOUT THE RESOURCE
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Skills and Training Working Group was formed in 2020 to identify a framework for building competence and capabilities for the EOSC. This report presents results of the Working Group’s analysis in relation to four key areas that form the major sections of the report:
- Developing the next generation of FAIR and open science professionals
- Collaborating to enhance digital skills for FAIR and open science in future
- Building a trusted and long-lasting knowledge hub of learning and training resources and related tools
- Influencing national open science policy for skills by supporting strategic leaders
The report makes recommendations for future work by stakeholders to achieve the vision of the EOSC and to maximize research internationally.
