Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe 2020 (OpenAIRE2020)


Project no.: 643410

Project description:

In OpenAIRE2020, 50 partners, from all EU countries, and beyond, will collaborate to work on this large-scale initiative that aims to promote open scholarship and substantially improve the discoverability and reusability of research publications and data. The initiative brings together professionals from research libraries, open scholarship organisations, national e-Infrastructure and data experts, IT and legal researchers, showcasing the truly collaborative nature of this pan-European endeavour. A network of people, represented by the National Open Access Desks (NOADs); will organise activities to collect H2020 project outputs, and support research data management. Backing this vast outreach, is the OpenAIRE platform, the technical infrastructure that is vital for pulling together and interconnecting the large-scale collections of research outputs across Europe.

Project funding:

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation “Horizon 2020”

Project results:

Developing the infrastructure for opening European research results: links between research publications, data, information about institutions, researchers, funding, etc. (European CRIS); developing mechanisms for harvesting data from subject and institutional literature repositories, data repositories and current research information systems (CRIS); developing guidelines for project coordinators, repository managers, research administrators and researchers to promote open science and reusability of data; monitoring research results, access and usage; research on the impact of open access to scholarly publications and research data on research development and return on investment.

Period of project implementation: 2015-01-01 - 2018-06-30
