OpenAIRE is an e-infrastructure for storing research results produced with the EU support and making research information available via Open Access. Today, OpenAIRE gives access to more than 520 repositories and numerous OA journals, more that 9 million open publications and 1000 datasets, and documents and materials from 50 000 organisations and 30 000 projects.
OpenAIRE Advance project continues the mission of OpenAIRE to support the Open Access/Open Data mandates in Europe. By sustaining the current successful infrastructure, comprised of a human network and robust technical services, it consolidates its achievements while working to shift the momentum among its communities to Open Science, aiming to be a trusted e-Infrastructure within the realms of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). In this next phase, OpenAIRE-Advance strives to empower its National Open Access Desks (NOADs) so they become a pivotal part within their own national data infrastructures, positioning Open Access and Open Science onto national agendas.
