New e-IRGSP6 support project held its kick-off meeting in Luxembourg


24 Jan 2019 Luxembourg - On January 1, 2019 the new e-IRGSP6 project, the follow-up project of e-IRGSP5, was launched to continue the support for the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG). The five partners in the project consortium held their kick-off meeting on January 23, 2019 in Luxembourg. The e-IRGSP6 project will run for 30 months and is coordinated by Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) in Germany.

e-IRGSP6 will provide the core services to the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG). The project will support e-IRG in its activities producing high-level policy recommendations towards the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), EDI and the e-Infrastructure Commons overall. The activities include the operation of the secretariat, i.e. organisation of e-IRG and outreach events and provision of secretarial support to e-IRG, its Chair and Executive Board.

The provision of editorial support during the preparation of policy documents, as well as the support to e-IRG working groups and task forces are also vital services needed by e-IRG. The communication and liaison activities include the dissemination of the outputs of e-IRG, liaison with its various stakeholders, in particular ESFRI, the operation of the external and internal e-IRG web presence and maintenance of the social media outlets.

e-IRGSP6 will also assist the EC, the Members States and Associated Countries with communication activities around EOSC and EDI/EuroHPC. Through these supporting activities by e-IRGSP6 and in its capacities e-IRG will contribute to the implementation of EOSC and promote the cultural change towards Open Science principles. The consortium is very experienced and well-connected in the field through long-term involvement in previous e-IRG support projects.
