The European research and innovation ecosystem is going through a period of profound change. Researchers, organisations that fund or perform research, and policy makers are reshaping the research process and its outputs, based on the opportunities offered by the digital transition. The findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability (FAIRness) of research publications, data, and software in the digital space will define research and innovation going forward. Closely related, the transition to an open research process and Open Access of its outputs is becoming an integral part of a well-functioning research system. The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is advancing the federation of research infrastructures in Europe for fair access to data.
