The Project

e-IRGSP6 is a EU-funded project. It 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 EOSC, EDI and the e-Infrastructure Commons overall. The activities include the operation of the secretariat, i.e. organization 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.

About e-IRG:

The e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) is a recognised advisory body to the Commission and the member states. e-IRG consists of national representatives nominated by the member states and associated states.  e-IRG produces policy documents, which include recommendations to the various stakeholders. The concept of the e-Infrastructure Commons introduced in the e-IRG Roadmap 2012 and taken up further in the e-IRG White Paper 2013 is seen as the foundation of the EOSC. (
