EIFL enables access to knowledge through libraries in developing and transition countries to support sustainable development.

Contribution to Open Science

EIFL was one of the originally signatories for the Budapest Open Access Initiative, which first coined the term Open Access in 2002. EIFL Open Access Programme was established in 2003.

Goals and objectives

Our vision is a world in which all people have the knowledge they need to achieve their full potential.
Our goals are to advance a fair and sustainable transition from paywalled to open access content and support research, teaching and learning.
Our objectives are to enhance open science and open research skills and advocate for the creation and maintenance of open public infrastructures that enable the publication and sharing of research.
