Background and description: In December 2016 ePLAN organised a workshop on the EOSC, discussing the question what The Netherlands could do to help creating the EOSC, which then was in its earlier stage of development. Now, one and a half year on the way, it is time to learn what the EOSC is becoming to be, which steps have been set, what we can do or need to do, discuss the cost and the benefits, and talk about the changes in mindset scientists and policymakers have to go through to get out of the EOSC what it is for: accelerating scientific discovery, through open science, data sharing and improved ICT-infrastructures to support that.
