OpenAIRE has a unique graph of information on scholarly output, with a huge potential to be reused and exploited. Earlier this year, OpenAIRE launched a tender call for services to seek innovative ideas that will improve the OpenAIRE infrastructure services and its overall uptake. Overall, 5 proposals covering two categories were selected and funded, and the services are already available to OpenAIRE and the wider community.
What were the outcomes? Below is a list of the five interesting projects!
The Commission decision adopted on 27 August launches the Executive Board for the EOSC as a formal expert group of the Commission.
This expert group will assist the Commission in the first phase of development of the EOSC until the end of 2020 and will contribute to the preparation of the transition to the second phase of development of the EOSC.
Two flagship EC initiatives, OpenAIRE-Advance and EOSC-hub open a new exciting chapter in their collaboration with the signing of their collaboration agreement on Monday, 30 April 2018. The agreement solidifies the projects’ ambition for Europe to become a global leader in digital and open science to ensure that scientists reap the full benefits of open data-driven science. Science requires a joint effort and new tools are needed to harness all the relevant information within the research process, while delivering easy ways to implement open science. Together, we will provide a set of services and resources that will become part of the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud).
The European Commission has released a new set of recommendations to the Member States that offer guidance and propose the best way to implement and support open science practices. The new recommendations include sections on incentives, rewards and require action plans from member states with concrete and measurable objectives. They are to replace the recommendations of 2012 which set out clear guidelines as to how publically funded work should be made openly and freely available.
The online event will take place on April 24th at 13:00 (CET) and is organised by Gergely Sipos, EGI's Customer and Technical Outreach Manager and part of the EOSC-hub Engagement team, and Najla Rettberg, OpenAIRE Network Manager.
