The EOSC-Pillar National Initiatives Survey, coordinated by the University of Vienna, assessed the current state of national initiatives regarding topics such as familiarity with FAIR data principles, open research data and services, in order to support their harmonisation and ultimately their integration into the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

To achieve this purpose and to gain a comprehensive picture of the European infrastructure landscape, the survey team contacted about 2.200 institutions across the five EOSC-Pillar countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy. 688 organisations filled out the survey, totaling a 31% response rate. The full edition of the questionnaire and method report is openly available for reuse (licensed under CC BY) in the AUSSDA Dataverse under The dataset for scientific reuse will be published under the same DOI in summer 2020.

The survey targeted four groups: Funding bodies, Universities, Research Infrastructures, and E-Infrastructures.
