OpenAIRE animation clip

OpenAIRE offers a wide variety of services for a large amount of stakeholders. Explaining what we do in a couple of minutes can therefore be quite challenging. That's why we've a short animation clip ‘OpenAIRE in 100 seconds' . We hope you enjoy it, it is intended as a lightweight approach to encapsulate the features and purposes of OpenAIRE and will be useful to show to a range of stakeholders, e.g. researchers, project coordinators at project kick-offs, research administrators etc.

OpenAIRE webinars

webinar Eloy Rodrigues4

OpenAIRE held a series of webinars about our services and about the H2020 Open Data and Open Access policies. Over a 160 people registered, demonstrating the need for both highly specialised information and more general introductory presentations for newcomers. We had attendants from all over the European Research Era and even beyond. Most registrants were affiliated with a University Library, but we were very happy to see a fair amount of researchers, funders and publishers amongst the attendants as well! 
Of course the slides and recordings are being made available. If you couldn't make it to the webinar and you have any lingering questions, don't hesitate to contact us and we will bring you in touch with the presenters for more information.  
 All recordings can be found here:

You can consult the slides on the OpenAIRE Slideshare account and on the FOSTER website

Plan S: A European Open Access Mandate

cOAlitionS Visual 200OpenAIRE welcomes the announcement of the ambitious ‘Plan S’, launched by cOAlition S, a coalition of 11 national funding organisations.

Four billion software files are open to all: the Software Heritage archive is finally online!

On the Software Heritage archive portal, more than 4 billion files from more than 80 million origins are available since June 7, 2018, date of the official opening ceremony held at the UNESCO, in the presence of sponsors and partners of Software Heritage.
