Advancing Open
Science in Austria

We, EOSC Austria, strive for a coordinated development of the Austrian Open Science Policy and European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) goals.

Welcome to the
EOSC Support Office Austria!

Quite a while ago the vision of a federated system of infrastructures supporting research by providing an open multi-disciplinary environment to publish, find and re-use data, tools and services led to the planned implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The implementation of EOSC is a long-term process that has been pursued by the European Commission since 2015. Thus, the EOSC Association was established on the European level.

The establishment of the EOSC Support Office Austria followed soon after to support the coordinated development of the Austrian Open Science Policy as well as to help make the vision of EOSC a reality.

On this website you’ll find further information on EOSC and the EOSC Association as well as you’ll learn more about who we are and what we do. We do hope that we can inspire you too with the vision of EOSC!

Get Involved!

We strive for a coordinated development of the Austrian Open Science Policy and the realisation of the goals of the EOSC – namely the creation of an open multi-disciplinary environment to publish, find and re-use data, tools and services for research, innovation and educational purposes. The participation of other institutions in the EOSC initiative is explicitly desired. We thus invite you to get involved and join the initiative!

The vision of Open Science is to make scientific processes more open and effective and to use both scientific excellence and open innovative and applied research to address current challenges, which are very comprehensively outlined in the policies of the EU Commission and in the framework of the Global Sustainability Goals (UN SDGs).

The Austrian initiative drives the commitment to the Open Science movement as well as to the Vienna Declaration on the EOSC.
