PASTEUR4OA and OpenAIRE are delighted to announce that PASTEUR4OA’s Knowledge Net activities to support the development and alignment of open access policies in Europe will continue as the Knowledge Net is integrated into the OpenAIRE infrastructure from September 2016. As the PASTEUR4OA project draws to a close, this will ensure the ongoing sustainability of its vital activities within one of Europe’s major Open Science e-infrastructures.
The Programme Committee of Digital Infrastructures for Research (DI4R 2016) invites all funding agencies, research communities and infrastructure providers, both public and private, to come together and share their insights, concerns, needs and vision for the future.
The European Commission has launched an open consultation in the context of preparation of the next Horizon 2020 e-infrastructure Work Programme 2018-2020 (deadline 30 April 2016). The objective is to gather input from e-infrastructure stakeholders on the challenges they face which the future work programme could address.
What are the key challenges ahead? How to answer the increasing scientific data needs? How can industrial actors fully benefit from the services provided by European e-infrastructures? These are some of the questions for which the EC seeks your input.
Leading European initiatives, EUDATLIBER, OpenAIRE, EGI and GEANT share their joint vision for the European Open Science Cloud for Research which includes eight elements of success for a concrete contribution to the Digital Single Market.
The Open Science Cloud, part of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy, will empower research data sharing, data stewardship and data reuse in Europe for the benefit of innovation and growth. Today’s joint statement sets out the partners’ strategic vision for the Open Science Cloud’s organisation, sustainability and governance as a contribution towards the practical realisation of the EC’s vision.
The OpenAIRE team has been busy over the past few months.
We brought our database up to speed with EC’s H2020 data so you can use OpenAIRE to report your research outcomes to EC's participant portal.
We now have 12.3 mi OA publications, an increase of almost 1 mi from June. With intensified text mining efforts we were able to identify many more links to projects and datasets: for FP7 more than 200K publications and 3K related data items. That’s a lot of free research at your fingertips!
... and a many more new features which include a responsive design, new login mechanisms, clearer navigation with lots of how-to's, straighforward tools for linking your research...
OpenMinTeD paves the way for mining Open scientific content
Making text and data open for anyone to find and read is an amazing development that can lead to many great possibilities and outcomes for science. One of them is the possibility to mine the text and data. The new H2020 project OpenMinTeD will be the first to build an online infrastructure that makes it much easier to mine, by making existing text mining tools discoverable, interoperable and accessible by the research communties.
