The 2023 action plan sets out the projects for the three platforms (HAL, Episciences, and Scienceconf) in connection with the axes of the road map.
The team goes on its substantive actions on the 3 platforms: production management, maintenance, and support. It is planning 20 actions for 2023, based on the main lines of the roadmap: anchor the CCSD within the Open Science and knowledge ecosystem in a durable and exemplary way and assert its leadership; increase usage of HAL, Episciences and Sciencesconf; and ensure the sustainability of the service offer of the three platforms.
