EUt+ alliance and OpenAIRE join forces for open science
The OpenAIRE-Nexus consortium and the European University of Technology (EUt+), have announced a new cooperation agreement to improve the integration and discoverability of research results, to showcase the synergies and connections and aggregate the work from all partners across this pan-European network of Universities. All, using open science in the core.
The OpenAIRE and EUt+ teams will collaborate to capture and display in a unique, new EUt+ alliance-branded webspace, selected locally-held institutional and project-based open access content of common interest.
OpenAIRE will offer a CONNECT gateway (https://connect.openaire.eu/) as a single entry point to all research outputs of this alliance. At the same time, the EUt+ will ensure that all its repositories are compliant with the OpenAIRE Guidelines and that the alliance’s outcomes are available in the gateway, counting statistics to measure the uptake of Open Science practices.
We are extremely happy to support such a forward looking initiative and offer our services to ensure open science acts as a practical mechanism to connect infrastructure and people and that it helps European institutions transition to more collaborative model of operations. Honoured to be part of the future, and we would be happy to support all 17 alliances.
EUt+ is delighted to have taken this step closer to building a real European University based on cooperation and a shared vision of teaching, research, engagement and innovation. EUt+, as a consortium of 8 universities, is committed to the transition to Open Scholarship and signing this MoU underlines the importance of this to EUt+.
