OpenAIRE services: Contributing to the national EOSC ecosystems

OpenAIRE operates services that help researchers practice Open Science, service providers interoperate with the EOSC ecosystem, research managers monitor research outcomes and policies and trainers find and reuse material related to Open Science.  

Based on the OpenAIRE Guidelines for interoperability and the OpenAIRE Research Graph, our services are key into the implementation of the EOSC Core. But how can OpenAIRE services, which are core components of EOSC, assist Open and FAIR principles both in the EOSC and in national ecosystems and serve EOSC itself as a platform?  

Our EOSC WG, which was created in order to provide more clarity to  OpenAIRE members and our network on how OpenAIRE is positioned in the EOSC, has created an infographic that answers these questions and more!  

See how OpenAIRE services contribute to EOSC and to national Open Science settings both for end-users and/or service providers. 

We hope that you will find it both interesting and informative.  

Open Science e-learning for the community 

OpenAIRE is about to unveil OpenPlato, a free to use, openly licensed, trustworthy and sustainable training platform on Open Science. OpenPlato is an e-learning platform for the research and research support communities to learn about Open Science, FAIR principles and research data management and so much more associated with these. 


Stay tuned for the launch of OpenPlato on 1st June 2022.

Our Authentication & Authorisation infrastructure 

This month we have OpenAIRE AAI service in the spotlight. Find out more about our service that allows members to use a single digital identity for seamlessly accessing the resources they need, compatible to EOSC AAI, integrating AAI services across different infrastructures and provide research communities with the support they need to securely share data and resources.    


Supporting Open Science in Spain

"OpenAIRE is a key infrastructure for the implementation of the European Union's Open Science policy. For FECYT, being part of OpenAIRE is a strategic alliance that brings support to our national harvester and confers meaning to many of the services that we provide‚ÄĚ.¬†¬†


The OpenAIRE team has the pleasure of speaking to Laura Valeria Bonora and Pilar Rico-Castro, our NOAD’s in Spain. We were able to ask them some brief questions about Open Science, latest developments in their country regarding Open Science and how our organisation supports their effords.

Making Open Science the new normal 

Earlier this month, members of our team participated in the first in-person meeting of the year, the EOSC policy event in Strasbourg.
