    12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
  • Balling Hall, National Library of Technology,
    Technická 6, 160 80 Prague 6

For the first time in the Czech Republic, we are hosting the National EOSC Tripartite Event alongside the third Czech Open Science Day. The first day of the event will focus on high-level EOSC Tripartite strategic collaboration, which involves the European Commission, the EOSC Steering Board, and the EOSC Association, aiming to ensure resources and support the implementation of EOSC across Europe. The second day will be dedicated to Open Science and exploring good practices in Czechia.

Our joint event aims to provide you with up-to-date information on the European policy on Open Science and the status of EOSC implementation in the Czech Republic and foster cooperation and coordination among various R&D&I stakeholders towards the transition to Open Science. We anticipate hosting over 150 stakeholders, including policymakers, representatives from research funding and performing organizations, researchers, and other actors involved in the adoption of Open Science and EOSC.

The event will feature a wide range of keynote speakers and panel discussions and will also offer a great opportunity for networking and meeting other experts in the field. Details of the conference program and registration can be found in the information below. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We look forward to your participation!
