Unveiling Ireland's Path to Open Access: Introducing the National Open Access Monitor

We are proud to announce a landmark achievement as Ireland launches the National Open Access Monitor. This milestone comes after months of rigorous selection processes and an immense group effort, and we can now see the results! The National Open Access Monitor marks a significant stride towards Ireland’s goal of achieving 100% accessibility to publicly funded research by 2030. This initiative will serve as a beacon, guiding the country's transition towards a more transparent and inclusive research ecosystem.

This news is an inspiring example for other countries that sets a bright future for Open Access and research, illuminating the path toward a more accessible and impactful research landscape. Open Science monitoring is a continuous effort that should come from open sources and this is where the community should invest! 

A new Gateway Connecting the Geothermal Community

Learn about the new gateway that has been launched on OpenAIRE.CONNECT to bring together the geothermal community. EGRISE is a space that facilitates the free flow of knowledge between all actors in the field, moving geothermal research and innovation forward.
