Oct 24-30, 2016 we celebrate one of the highlights of the year: Open Access Week!


Open in Action

The theme of this year’s 9th International Open Access Week, to be held October 24-30, will be “Open in Action”, effectively providing an incentive to broaden the scope and involve all stakeholders, researchers and the general public. This is a key opportunity for all members of the community to take action to keep this momentum moving forward.

We have scheduled a full week of webinars on various topics which we hope will shed some light on the implementation of Open Science and the activities OpenAIRE is involved in.
