The EOSC Association (EOSC-A) was established in July 2020 as a not-for-profit international Association (AISBL) in Belgium. With already over 230 member and observer organisations from across Europe, the Association represents a single voice for the advocacy and representation for the broader EOSC Stakeholder community in Europe, promoting alignment of EU research policy and priorities. An essential role of the Association is to continuously develop the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) which will influence future EOSC activities at institutional, national and EU level.
EOSC is being built in a bottom-up approach by its community financed by the European, national, and institutional funding streams. The European level is governed by the Horizon Europe co-programmed EOSC Partnership which was kicked-off in summer 2021. Thanks to the EC commitment, Horizon Europe calls in the order of 490 MEUR will be launched over the next seven years that offer the community to actively contribute and shape EOSC. One of the privileges of this EOSC Partnership is that the awarded INFRA-EOSC projects need to align and interface closely with the EOSC Association.
Under the technical leadership of its Chief Technology Officer (CTO), the EOSC Association is driving the update of the SRIA with the help of 13 Task Forces that have been recently established and which comprise over 300 representatives of the EOSC community.
To support the delivery of the technical ambitions of the SRIA the EOSC Association AISBL is seeking to fill two positions of Technology Officers as soon as possible.
In this role you will be part of the Secretariat, which advises and supports the General Assembly and the Board. You will be reporting to the Secretary General and will be closely working with the CTO, who is your supervisor for the content of your work.
This is an opportunity to work with an extremely motivated, broad, and diverse scientific community that is paving the way to Open Science. You will interact with decision makers within the community, the EU institutions and on member state level and will contribute to enabling impactful science in the digital age.
