An integral part of EOSC

OpenAIRE and the European Open Science Cloud

OpenAIRE fulfils the EOSC vision

OpenAIRE’s mission is closely linked to the mission of the European Commission: to provide unlimited, barrier free, open access to research outputs financed by public funding in Europe.

In concrete terms, OpenAIRE's operations (services-policies-training) already provide the glue for many of the user and research driven functionalities, whether these come from the long tail of science (repositories and local support) or domain disciplined research communities or Research Infrastructures.
