The aim of the European Commission’s stakeholder consultation on the European Open Science Cloud Rules of Participation is to help come up with guidelines on how the EOSC actors (which include both users and service providers) can participate in the EOSC. The Consultation Platform for the Rules of Participation allows stakeholders to rank, vote and further discuss the three sets of Recommendations (implementation, engagement & steering recommendations) that the EOSC HLEG chair Silvana Muscella, Trust-IT Services,  has presented at the Summit. The system works with a light registration that prevents anonymous submission without burdening the stakeholder participants called in to the consultation with too many entry questions. Stakeholders may participate multiple times to the discussion threads, but only once in the voting area.

On the other hand, the FAIR Data Action Plan puts forward 34 recommendations in GitHub, each with a series of actions assigned to multiple stakeholder groups. The stakeholder groups are: research communities, data services, data stewards, standards bodies, global coordination fora, policy makers, research funders, institutions and publishers.

In addition, each recommendation is associated with the main topic covered (typically the report chapter in which it emerged): policy, culture, technology, skills, metrics or costs. Some are closely aligned to two topics, e.g. culture and technology.

Consultation for both will be open until 5 August 2018, upon which, the results of the consultation will be analysed, and will feed into the initial Rules of Participation and the FAIR Data Action Plan due to be released in the 4th quarter of this year. The final Rules of Participation is slated to be released in the 3rd quarter of 2019.
