One-stop-shop for Open Access in Europe

OpenAIRE present in Open Repositories 2017

June 20 in Melbourne, Australia
...for our first demo of our new Data Provider Dashboard.

What we do

Open Science

We help shape and implement effective OA and Open Science policies in Europe and beyon. Our network of 33 National Open Access Desks (NOADs) operates a European Helpdesk supporting the transition to Open Science, while our services  enable researchers, content providers, funders, and research administrators to embed Open Science into their daily workflows. 

Open innovation

We push the boundaries of science to transform to socio-economic value. We make all research information freely available so that 3rd party providers build value added services to foster better understanding of scientific knowledge, while we scout for open and innovative scholarly communication services.

Linked Open Science

We link research artifacts (e.g., publications, data, software) together, and also to their creators (e.g., researchers, institutions, funders), enabling discoverability, transparency, reproducibility and quality-assurance of research.  OpenAIRE is a one-stop monitoring, analysis and reporting platform available to all.

Open to the world

We help connect Europe to the global open research environment. We work with similar initiatives around the world to promote and share common access policies and protocols for all research results. We promote common data standards and exchange content to transitiion towards an effective and open global research ecosystem.

young researchers
Your job is to assess research for your team, your institution, your country. Classification, corellations, trends are some of your routine tasks, as well as frequent reporting. Identification of relevant research (e.g., people, funding) is not an easy task and you find that you need to rely on expensive databases to carry it out.
