A Tribute to Uwe Müller

It is with sadness that we learnt of the passing away of Uwe Müller in February 2019. Uwe was inextricably linked to his work at the German DINI initiative (German Initiative for Networked Information) which among other things has developed the DINI certificate to improve OA publishing and publication infrastructures.

Paving the way for linked repository landscape

Uwe’s dedication for over a decade in developing the DINI certificate led to the established guidelines and protocols to support the interoperability of repositories, and the DRIVER Guidelines. These ultimately led to the OpenAIRE guidelines, the backbone of our infrastructure.

OpenAIRE and the repository community is particularly grateful to Uwe for all the hard work he put into laying the foundations for the network of repositories which supports Open Science today.

ICT news itemFrom 4 to 6 December at the ICT 2018 exhibition in Vienna, EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE, RDA Europe and FREYA projects are opening a joint booth in the European Commission Village. It is designed to be a focal point of discussions about sharing and opening science, transforming policy-making and society via informed decision-making.

Topics such as sharing of resources, economies of scale on computing power, sharing of data and enhanced accessibility and reusability of research results will be open for discussion.

The four projects aim to cater to visitors with diverse backgrounds, with a simple and fun approach. A series of demos will be showcased, along with cases from projects that benefited from Open Science. OpenAIRE will present its services on Open Science, the open innovation challenges and citizen science activities. FREYA will show the value of “persistent identifiers” that allow research resources to be reliably found and reused, as well as linked together in networks—the “PID Graph”. RDA Europe will showcase its solutions, the RDA Recommendations & Outputs focused on enabling open data sharing and EOSC-hub will present visitors the services and resources that can support their daily work.
