Dear open science enthusiasts,

We are pleased to present the April issue of the EOSC CZ newsletter, which summarises the latest updates from the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.

The working groups of the Czech EOSC initiative have now appointed their leaders. One of our articles details how the elections were conducted and the number of votes each candidate received. This issue also includes an interview with David Novák, who leads the Department of Information Resources and Landscape Archaeology.

Furthermore, we invite you to webinars related to open science and remind you to register for the e-INFRA CZ Conference. If you are interested in securing a grant for innovative projects, note that the OSCARS project's call is still open. At the end of the newsletter, we introduce an opportunity to engage new members of the Task Forces of the EOSC Association.

We wish you a pleasant reading!
Team of the EOSC CZ Initiative
