Dear open science enthusiasts,

Spring is in full swing, and we're keeping up the momentum. Here's the May issue of the EOSC CZ newsletter, packed with updates from the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative.

Our newsletter looks back at the MetaCentrum seminar in Brno and the Visegrad Group conference. Take a peek behind the scenes to find out more. In this issue, we'll introduce you to the EOSC EU Node platform, which promotes the use of FAIR data across Europe.

There's an interview not to miss – with Matyáš Hiřman, a data steward from the Central Library of Charles University, who discusses methodologies for natural science research data. Don't miss the International Conference on Persistent Identifiers, and accept an invitation to the FAIR Implementation Workshop.

Enjoy your reading!

The EOSC CZ secretariat at the MetaCentrum seminar in Brno

During the traditional two-day MetaCentrum seminar called the “Solver Seminar”, representatives from the EOSC CZ initiative gave several cross-cutting presentations in five lectures during the afternoon session on the first day. These talks reflected on current projects.



The V4 Conference 2024 explored cutting-edge research infrastructures

Experts, policymakers, and stakeholders from the Visegrad Group (V4) – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia – convened in Brussels on 18 April to explore the future of European research infrastructures. The CZELO office organised the conference with the V4 liaison offices in Brussels (SLORD, PolSCA, NRDIO).



I wish I had learned to manage my data sooner

Matyáš Hiřman is a data steward who leads a community of data stewards in the Czech Republic. Gradually, it's becoming an essential element in the National Repository Platform project and the EOSC CZ initiative. He is an exciting voice in the community, offering scientific data care services. Read about his participation in a data management course at the University of Vienna and why data management and storage are relevant today.



Do you know the EOSC EU Node?

The EOSC EU Node is a platform that supports multidisciplinary and multinational research and promotes FAIR data across Europe. In this environment, researchers can find tools and support for individual and collective planning, dissemination, and evaluation of their research workflows and outcomes within the EOSC ecosystem.
