EU told to speed science cloud

Germany and the Netherlands have presented EU ministers with a position paper arguing that further action on the European Open Science Cloud is “urgently needed”.

The European Open Science Cloud was announced by the European Commission in 2015 to develop computing and data-storage capacity for scientists. It is part of the Digital Single Market strategy and is steered by a dedicated high-level group.

However, observers have said that the EU is shuffling its feet over its implementation. “Many countries don’t yet grasp what the Open Science Cloud is. But Germany and the Netherlands think it could be very important for European researchers,” a spokesman for the Dutch EU delegation told Research Europe.
