What we do

Operate services to implement open science policies

We operate a participatory infrastructure to support the interoperability and connectivity of all research related data sources and produce an interlinked scholarly communication graph.

Offer Open Science services to research communities

We provide tailored versions of OpenAIRE's tools and services (deposition, aggregation, cleaning, enrichment, claiming) to research communities for their open science needs.

Support Open Access and open science policies

We are shaping and implementing effective OA and Open Science policies via our network of 33 National Open Access Desk (NOADs)  that form a pan-European Helpdesk.

Offer an open innovation platform

We open up OpenAIRE's scholarly communication graph for others to use and to build value added services, and actively promote open, innovative services from 3rd party providers to accelarate open scholarship.

Provide a European wide Research Information platform

We operate a monitoring and analysis platform for all European research. We promote transparency with reports available to all.

Act as Europe's Open Science Gateway to the world

We connect Europe and its outcomes to the global research ecosystem via common access policies, data standards, and data exchange.
