The participation and the role of universities is crucial for the development of EOSC. The Milano-Bicocca University is the first University to join ICDI.
The membership confirms the University commitment to the development of Open Science. Milano-Bicocca in fact participates, with different levels of involvement, in multiple Research Infrastructures - IR ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures). In particular, the University is at the forefront of IR ESFRI which provide services in the fields of Environment, Health & Food, Physical sciences & Engineering, Social & Cultural Innovation.
EOSC needs competences and to spread them, in this sense the role of Universities is crucial for the training of researchers able to create and manage research data, according to open science practices and the FAIR paradigm (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) thus contributing to the European Open Science Cloud.
