The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS), being the coordinator of research in Bulgaria, intends to establish a network of scientific Open Access centres. IMI-BAS will be the key point repository in the Bulgarian network providing support for academic researchers.
Furthermore, workshops, training actions, communication events on the use of the infrastructure for scientific communities will be organised by IMI-BAS together with the Bulgarian Information Consortium (BIC) and Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics of Sofia University. This will raise the awareness amongst possible content providers and advise them on the use of the repositories.
