OpenAIRE supports the open access policy of the EC. This means that it gathers together the open access publications of the FP7 funding stream and moving on to Horizon 2020. For the first time, the EC can now view figures and detailed statistics
on the research output associated with the funding that it provides. In turn this gives a figure for 'impact of funding', which can be viewed on the level of funding programme/stream/project. The services are currently being extended to include research data.
As well as the EC and ERC, OpenAIRE has run a pilot with Wellcome Trust and FCT project info, and is now ready to apply this model and its services to include additional funders at the national, or private/thematic level.
