DescriptionThe Open Science paradigm is nowadays the driving force to establish a “cloud” of highly accessible, highly interoperable set of tools, services and data repositories for research. Although it might seem conceptually easy, the technical feasibility of Open Science e-Infrastructures is not free from challenges. To support and complement the implementation of the paradigm, the F.A.I.R principle (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) has been proposed for both data and services. The proposed session aims at discussing the Open Science concept and the challenges connected to its implementation. The session will introduce some of the initiatives on-going in a specific geographical setting - the Nordic region - taken as a showcase to demonstrate the feasibility of Open Science e-Infrastructure developped in the light of the FAIR principles. This session is intended for prospective service providers, technology providers and software providers from research infrastructures, research projects and scientific collaborations.
