The agreements regulate resources and services necessary for the collection, processing, storage, dissemination and availability of research data.
This initiative is the result of years-long joint efforts of many stakeholders from the science and tertiary education in the open science movement, and the initiative was launched with the support of the Ministry of Science and the Croatian Science Foundation.
It creates preconditions for developing the Croatian open science cloud that will enable coordinated development of the country’s e-infrastructure.
The initiative will bring together relevant stakeholders in creating required preconditions for the implementation, realisation, and promotion of open science.
Addressing the ceremony, Minister Radovan Fuchs said that open science constituted the future of successful science and research.
The Croatian Open Science Cloud will make it possible for research data, services and resources, created in Croatia, to be included in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The head of the University Computing Centre (SRCE), Ivan Marić, said that this institution made an active contribution to the EOSC through its participation in many European projects, while building a new generation of e-infrastructure for advanced science and education.
