  • TGoodmorning, my name is Gwen and I represent the OpenAIRE project. he OpenAIRE project, acronym stands for Open Access infrastructurefor Research in Europe, is an FP7 project thatfocuses on providing access to the research output of otherprojectsIt was originallyset up to assist researchersfrom a selectednumber of FP7 projectsto make surethattheir peer reviewedpublicationswere made Open Access, in accordancewith the EC andERC’s OA policy, It has now expanded to target all research output fromall FP7 projects. OpenAIRE offers aninfrastructure, tools forresearchersand project coordinators, information about Open Access and a helpdesk system.
  • OpenAIRE offers assistance toresearchers, project coordinatorsand data providers.OpenAIRE helpsresearchersto share andarchivetheirresearchers, andtomaximize the use of their research output. A lot of funders have Open Access demands, OpenAIRE also assists individualresearcherstocomplywiththem. Quiterecently, OpenAIRE has expanded its scope anditfocusesnowalso on the linking of publicationstoassociated research data.OpenAIRE alsoworks on project management level byassisting project coordinatorstocomplywiththeirfunder’s OA demands. Offer tools thatcanbeusedforshowcasingpublications on project websites, tocompile performance indicators such as usagestatisticsandalsotofacilitate the linking of publicationsto datasetsThirdly, OpenAIRE also assists data providers, whetherthey are institutions, repositories, journals, projects or individualresearchersto make their data more visible , toensurethatoabecomes the default for datasets (meanwhilenotignoringlegalandethicalbarriers) andtoensureinteroperability - eg between project databases andrepositories.
  • What does OpenAIRE has to offer for project coördinators and managers?

    5. 5. • Open Access means more visibility for your work • Search function for research output • Usage statistics • Archive for research output • Own repository • Zenodo repository (hosted by CERN) Researchers: What’s in it for you? www.openaire.eu
    6. 6. Making research OpenAccess increases Visibility and Re-use
    7. 7. Project coordination: What does OpenAIRE offer? OpenAIRE provides you with performance indicators and reporting tools Linking publications to Data to facilitate the re- use of research output and describe research in its context OpenAIRE helps your project to comply with funders’ Open Access demands View and export publication progress reports and integrate them in project website www.openaire.eu
