Structure: Following a hybrid model of member organisation and member state representation, the OpenAIRE A.M.K.E. aims to become the foundation for national coordination on Open Science in Europe, achieving long-term sustainability and economies of scale.
Becoming a member: OpenAIRE A.M.K.E. sets off with its current base. To accomplish a truly open and participatory modus operandi, it is open for other organisations to join from February 2019 onwards. Members of the organisation will apply their expertise in their national or thematic contexts to:
- Support of reproducible research with technical services
- Alignment of Open Science policies
- Support & Training for Open Science
Our members are expected to actively contribute to shaping the European open scholarly communication infrastructure, capitalising on their collective experience in Open Science. In this new setting, we will continue and strengthen our efforts within the EOSC context to engage all EU and associated member states to commit to the alignment and implementation of Open Science and outreach to other organisations beyond the OpenAIRE project base.
