On 20 June 2016, the Commission High Level Expert Group on the European Open Science Cloud (HLEG EOSC) released the draft of their first report available: A Cloud on the 2020 Horizon. Realising the European Open Science Cloud: first report and recommendations. This report aims to lay out a high level, living roadmap for the realisation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

The European Open Science Cloud aims to accelerate and support the current transition to more effective Open Science and Open Innovation in the Digital Single Market.

This report approaches the EOSC as a federated environment for scientific data sharing and re-use, based on existing and emerging elements in the Member States, with light-weight international guidance and governance and a large degree of freedom regarding practical implementation. The Commission will review the draft report shortly and publish the final version in the course of the summer.
