Do you want to shape the EOSC? Join one of four new EOSC Interest Groups

The EOSC Secretariat project has launched four Interest Groups, and anyone interested in helping to shape the EOSC is welcome to join. 

Ireland currently has representatives in several aspects of EOSC governance. Ronan Byrne of HEAnet is the country representative on the EOSC Governance Board, 

The EOSC Executive Board has several Working Groups, with UCD’s University Librarian John Howard on the Sustainability working group, and DRI’s Director Natalie Harrower on the FAIR working group, and others are involved through EOSC projects and the Liaison platform. 

Joining an Interest Group is a good way to stay abreast of developments and to help build the EOSC.
