Shaping the next generation of Open Science Platforms: Open call for Innovators!

OpenAIRE calls you to participate in its open innovation program that will shape new services through challenges.

OpenAIRE’s Open Innovation activities aim to attract innovation at all levels of the OpenAIRE e-Infrastructure: repository and publishing platforms, OpenAIRE services and value-added services using OpenAIRE data/content. Fresh business ideas and the formation of an innovation ecosystem would be the result of the combination of internal and external ideas. Future entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs will be the protagonists in this venture.

How it works?

To this goal, a set of Challenges has been defined and are open for discussion and feedback.

The Challenges identified are:

  • Future Repositories and impact metrics
  • Web Tools to showcase OpenAIRE content
  • Visualizations of OpenAIRE content/results for policy makers and researchers
  • Going beyond the journal impact factor to reflect the goodness of Open Science
  • Improving search of datasets and software in the OpenAIRE graph
  • Enhance OpenAIRE Monitoring tools
  • OpenAIRE for Journalism platform
