OpenAIRE Research Graph: data dump of funded products


Identifying the research products (research literature, data, software, and other types of research products) that are funded by research projects and funders is key to realizing research impact or research trend analysis tools. The OpenAIRE Research Graph ( builds and openly publishes one of the largest dataset of product-project-funder links by harvesting metadata from data sources that comply with the OpenAIRE Guidelines (e.g., repositories, publishers); or by full-text mining the article PDFs when this is made available.

OpenAIRE's text mining modules scan the plaintexts of (more than 15Mi) publications for funding information, references to datasets, software URIs, accession numbers of bioentities, and EPO patent mentions. Custom mining modules also link research objects to specific research communities, initiatives and infrastructures. In addition, other inference modules provide content-based document classification, document similarity, citation matching, and author affiliation matching. 

In particular, Project/funding mining requires a limited set of projects metadata provided by funders in an Excel or similar file format, or an API from which OpenAIRE can periodically collect the data (

The table below shows by funder the number of projects provided, and the number of products related to projects.
