Open Call Winner Phase 1 - CITE

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

How would it be if a click of a button on a website could show which publication, dataset or software is open access and findable via OpenAIRE, and draw information about related projects, researchers, publications, and more? No coding, no multi browsing, simple, direct and easy access.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Data Futures Limited

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

Biodiversity interacts with the physical environment to create the ecosystem supporting living organisms – like us. This project focuses on providing a new service in OpenAIRE, adding value to Open Science repositories by automating comprehensive reuse of existing publications. Understanding species loss and contributing to the creation of a cyber-catalogue of the world’s species would help in preventing the loss of biodiversity.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - euroCRIS

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

How and why could a Directory of Research Information Systems (DRIS) support CRIS system identification in the registration/validation workflow for their harvesting by OpenAIRE? Check out what euroCRIS will be developing with the support of OpenAIRE.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Ingred.io

Topic #2: Enhance the quality of OpenAIRE Graph

If you care to know if the cosmetics you use are safe and food you consume is organic and healthy, then you can scientifically discover it by using this new enhancement of OpenAIRE Graph. Moreover, you will be able to learn the consequences for your health of using products with hazardous ingredients.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Nubisware

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

An AIRE Lab without data is like food without salt. This idea injects Event Probes into the Data Aggregation Workflow (DAW) capturing fine-grained events fed to a Functional Toolkit.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Opscidia

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

Looking for a tool to automatically analyze scientific publications by using NLP text mining algorithms? This idea will enable the production of semi-automatic domain-specific ontologies and representations of OpenAIRE graph according to those ontologies.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Planetek Hellas

Topic #3: Expand the OpenAIRE Service portfolio

The proposed service will facilitate users of the space and geospatial community to have easy access to open science scientific records (data and metadata, from publications and research outputs) available in OpenAIRE to explore, exploit and make better sense of them. The service will function as an OpenAIRE plug-in, a software extension adding extra features to the EO4GEO learning platform. This will extend the learning platform by extending some useful functions, adding a new item to the platform’s interface and giving it overall additional capabilities.

Open Call Winner Phase 1 - Qeios

Application on Topic #1Next Generation Repository Technologies

Definitions of materials, processes and more, have interested philosophers since ancient times. As science evolved, though, new definitions were created within articles. Knowing all definitions, their meanings and distinguishing them would be hard, if not impossible, with the proper tools. Qeios works on the definitions production, publication and discovery.

Open Innovation Call - FAQs

  1. In the rules of the call, it is stated that the applications must be submitted online. Is there a place to submit the application on the website, or shall we just send it through?

    Applications have to be submitted by e-mail at: openaire[at]corallia.org in PDF form accompanied with the related Annexes of the Open Call.

  2. Is it necessary to submit all the Annexes together with the 10 pages application form or are there to be submitted later?

    Each Application has to be followed by the Annexes that concern each team. Not all the Annexes are related to the profile of the participants. Thus, each applicant has to choose carefully the Annexes that will accompany its Application.

  3. Our company is currently in the process of being registered. Shall we apply as a team of natural persons or as a company in the process of registration?

    Each Applicant/team has to deposit its Application by taking into consideration the legal status of their team the closing day of the Tender.

  4. How do I submit my application?

    Applications shall be submitted by e-mail at together with all the necessary documents (Annexes) related to the profile of the Applicant.

  5. Is there a recorded version of the Open Consultation Market Debate?

    Yes, interested applicants may find a recorded version of the discussions:

  1. Online session
  2. Next Generation Repositories
  3. Services and OpenAIRE Graph

   6. Where I can find the document entitled Economic offer in order to sign it?

The economic offer can be described at the Annex 5b.

   7. Is the pen signature sufficient or do we need to sign the PDF also digitally?

The pen signature is sufficient.

   8. The mail for the submission of the application has to contain one single zip archive with the pdfs or the applicant needs to attach every single doc to the mail?

The applicant may choose what is more convenient to him/her. Both ways are acceptable.

   9. What does it mean that “OpenAIRE will allocate a total budget of €360,000 to successful project proposals”?

It means that OpenAIRE has a total budget equal up to 360.000,00 € which will be allocated through this Open Call for Tenders to successful applicants.

  10. A winning team can be awarded up to 60.000 euros?

Yes. Each applicant can submit a Proposal for being funded for up to 60.000,00 € maximum. Thus, a Proposal may not exceed this amount for completing all the 3 Phases. An applicant can, however, apply for a grant less than 60 K.

*Tenders may be submitted by a single entity or in collaboration with others. The latter can involve either submitting a joint tender or subcontracting) - please, see par. 3.1 of the Open Call for Tenders.

  11. Which is the meaning of the phrase "Contractors are notified as to whether they have completed this phase satisfactorily and successfully."?

This section is explicitly explained in the section 5.5 of the Open Call for Tenders. Successful applicants will be evaluated at the end of each Phase of the Open Call. More in particular:

Satisfactory completion in each of the phases does not mean successful completion. A Phase of the Open Call could, for instance, be satisfactorily completed even if it concludes that the innovation is not feasible. 

The assessment will consider the efforts made by contractors to take into account the feedback from the supervisor or the monitoring team.

Where the assessment committee judges the completion of deliverables or milestones to be unsatisfactory, the possible consequences are at a first place, reduce or withdrawal of the payment for that phase and at a second level (in case no remedies take place by the contractor) termination of the contract.

Eligibility for participation in the next phase will be subject to successful completion of the current phase.

Note: There is a difference between satisfactory completion (requirement for payment) and successful completion (prerequisite for passing from one phase to the next).

   12. Shall we budget to pay for the VAT out of our winnings?

According to the Open Call for Tenders (section 4.3),  the fixed total price is stated as being “Delivery Duty Paid” (DDP) for all deliverables, exclusive of import duties and VAT. The price furthermore includes all costs relative to the Contractor’s obligations.

Note: All contractors will be paid by the procurer (centralized payments) thus it will be the VAT regime of the procurer that applies. 

In other words, if an applicant is subject to VAT, it has to include it in the price that he/she will declare. If not, the applicant does not have to do it.

 *We suggest you to check whether the VAT regime applies for you in the provision of services within the EU.

13. Eligibility criteria

Applicant's cannot be associated to OpenAIRE partners, i.e. work for a partner of have other contractual relationship with them.
a. Does it mean the proposal would be rejected if the applicant aims to set up a consortium with one or more OpenAIRE partners?
b. Is a MoU between the applicant and OpenAIRE an exclusion criterion?
Any and all, contractual or not, relations, connections, affiliations, dependencies, agreements etc. with any OpenAIRE party should be disclosed and substantiated by the applicants in order to be assessed on grounds of conflict of interest. No preliminary assessment can be provided at this stage, given that such authority falls within the scope of the pertinent committee and Athena RC Board of Directors.

14. Would the OpenAIRE-Advance team consider given an extension for the submission of proposals?

Regarding the prolongation of the deadline, we strongly advise you to proceed to the submission by taking into consideration the initial deadline issued by the Open Call: 12.12.2019 – 17h00 CET.
Potential extension will be considered at the end of the deadline.

15. Is the inclusion of more detailed metadata (the abstracts for projects) on the roadmap for Openaire, they currently don’t appear to be in the api. If so, is there a timeline for this inclusion?

There are abstracts for H2020 and a few other funders. For FP7 we will have them, but priority is low, so we do not have a date. Abstracts are not visible via the index but they are available in the data.

 16. We are a research lab, and we do not plan commercial exploitation. So we would provide the project outcome to OpenAIRE for maintenance free of charge. What should we write in this case to Business Plan and Business model canvas sections?

Please, consult the page 25 of the Open Call: Tenderers that do not comply with the selection criteria will be excluded. Part of the selection criteria is the completion of the Business Model Canvas.
The fact that you would like to provide the project outcome free of charge does not mean that it would not be valuable to the users. Thus, we recommend you to mention in the relevant section which would be the value for the OpenAIRE community and to what it is consisted of.

17. Template of Annex 5a doesn't provide a section to fill in with responsible data, signature and stamp. Annex 4 and 5b do have such sections. Does this mean that Annex 5a doesn't have to be signed?

Annex 5a doesn’t have to be signed. However, applicants have to submit it in a PDF form.

Application boundaries3

The OpenAIRE Topics

The background: OpenAIRE is a platform funded and supported by European Commission with the mission to shift scholarly communication towards openness and transparency and facilitate innovative ways to communicate and monitor research. The long term vision of OpenAIRE is to transform society through validated scientific knowledge allowing citizens, educators, funders, civil servants and industry to find ways to make science useful and comprehensive.

Open Innovation: OpenAIRE launches within the framework of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, its Open Innovation programme to discover, support and fund innovative ideas and implementations of software in the Open Science domain. This is achieved by the mingle of external and internal ideas that will lead to the co-creation of fresh business ideas and the formation of an innovation ecosystem with would-be-entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs, closely related to OpenAIRE. The Open Innovation programme will select innovative projects in the field of Open Science to develop products and services linked to scholarly works, repositories, data management, OpenAIRE infrastructure and OpenAIRE services. Furthermore, ideas that make use of current assets available within OpenAIRE and create new services for the Open Science ecosystem (and EOSC) are welcome!

The topics: Through this open call, OpenAIRE calls young innovators and SMEs to work on one of the following three topics, so as to enhance and expand OpenAIRE services or to improve current infrastructure, by picking up the one that fits best with your experience, skills, and motivation.
