Public launch of the Skills4EOSC Competence Centres Network

the Skills4EOSC Project will host the public launch event of its Competence Centres Network

On June 25, 2024, from 9:30 to 12:30 CEST

During this virtual event, you will discover the Skills4EOSC Competence Centres (S4E CCs). According to the project's vision, these CCs are hubs for Open Science and EOSC activities in their respective countries or thematic domains. The S4E CCs are collaborative entities and networks bringing together extensive expertise in Open Science and data management across various domains. They provide training and support while collaborating at the pan-European level to align curricula, quality assurance, and certification schemes for competencies and materials related to Open Science, FAIR research output management, and the EOSC context.

The event is free, but registration is required. Please complete the registration form to secure your spot:
