Skills for the European Open Science commons: creating a training ecosystem for Open and FAIR science

Skills4EOSC core objective is to advance Open Science (OS) skills by unifying the current training landscape into a common and trusted pan-European ecosystem, closing the three gaps identified in the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) in relation to OS competences:

  • lack of Open Science and data expertise,
  • lack of a clear definition of data professional profiles and corresponding career paths,
  • fragmentation in training resources.

The project design rests on six pillars:

  1. Minimum Viable Skillsets (MVS)
  2. Training-of-Trainers (ToT)
  3. FAIR-by-design methodology for learning materials
  4. Harmonised curricula and learning paths
  5. Lifelong learning through professional networks
  6. Skills4EOSC Competence Centre and support network

The project is implemented by a consortium of 44 partners from 18 countries, including universities, museums and research institutes from all over Europe, and Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center.
