OpenAIRE announces formation of legal entity

The EU organisation to facilitate openness in scholarly communication is now a fully-fledged organisation.

The changes mean that OpenAIRE will provide a permanent platform to support European research.

OpenAIRE has been funded by the EC since 2008.  It promotes open scholarship and improves the discoverability, accessibility, shareability, reusability, reproducibility and monitoring of data-driven research results, across scientific disciplines and thematic domains, cross-border in Europe and beyond.

OpenAIRE aims to become the foundation for national coordination on Open Science in Europe, achieving long-term sustainability and economies of scale.
