Fostering Open Science in Heritage Science

Sep 22, 2022

Composed of more than 70 institutions distributed in Europe and beyond, IPERION HS supports thousands of researchers to push further the scientific boundaries of heritage science, an interdisciplinary domain of scientific study of cultural and natural tangible heritage. 

Every year, hundreds of publications, software, and datasets in different disciplines are produced. Opportunities offered by OpenAIRE are crucial to the community to be interconnected and reinforced in the achievement of the main goal: to preserve the inheritance of humanity for the future in all its forms: paintings, sculptures, monuments, archaeological sites and objects, paleontological remains and archives.

Building a gateway as a single entry point to discover all the scientific results will reinforce participation in the European Open Science Cloud ecosystem and create new opportunities for the circulation of knowledge in the field.

OpenAIRE will contribute to supporting the implementation of the new platform for the heritage science community focused on digital access to data. It could become one of the building blocks of the European DIGILAB platform operated under the future ERIC. OpenAIRE CONNECT and OpenAIRE MONITOR will measure the impact of Open Science practices in the community and improve their impact on the educational and scholarly systems. A new generation of heritage scientists could benefit from this collaboration, finding all the research outputs available in one place.


“Joining the OpenAIRE platform is an important step toward making Heritage Science data open, findable, accessible and reliable. The IPERION HS team is glad to be partnering with OpenAIRE in enabling a cross-border exchange of knowledge in heritage science and in opening new opportunities for the next generations of heritage scientists. We are excited to work together with OpenAIRE on this important and challenging mission with global impact.” Luca Pezzati, IPERION HS Coordinator 

“The collaboration with IPERION HS is of key importance to us as it brings in our portfolio of gateways an interdisciplinary community on cultural heritage. We hope that this will allow us to learn more about the needs of the community for open science and that we can improve our service to better accommodate the data, the people, the member organisations. For us this is another signal that Open Science grows only when we grow together with our partner communities.” Natalia Manola, OpenAIRE CEO

IPERION HS: The H2020 project IPERION HS aims to further integrate platforms for the European Research Infrastructure on Heritage Science (E-RIHS), the interdisciplinary domain of scientific study of cultural or natural heritage. With 67 partners from 23 countries, 52 providers and more than 180 services, IPERION HS offers cross-border access to an impressively wide range of high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data and skills for advancing knowledge and innovation in the analysis, interpretation, preservation, documentation and management of heritage.

OpenAIRE-Nexus: The Horizon 2020 OpenAIRE-Nexus project, a consortium of 11 partners, brings in Europe, EOSC and the world a set of services to implement and accelerate Open Science and tools to embed in researchers' workflows, making it easier for them to accept and uptake Open Science practices of openness and FAIRness.

OpenAIRE AMKE: OpenAIRE is a Non-Profit Partnership, established in 2018 as a legal entity, OpenAIRE A.M.K.E, to ensure a permanent open scholarly communication infrastructure and support research in Europe and beyond. OpenAIRE is making Open Science happen. Collectively and in practical ways. Its fields of expertise and activities include services, policies and training. Operating since 2009, OpenAIRE is an integral part and a leading force behind the European Open Science Cloud developments.
