OpenAIRE stands for Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe. Its aim is to support the Open Science policy of the European Commission (EC). The EC wants publications and datasets resulting from European research funding to be available in open access formats. OpenAIRE has developed several support services for researchers. The Taskforce Research Data Management (RDM), led by DANS, is developing training materials: webinars, blogs, and guides for researchers. OpenAIRE promotes open scientific dialogue for policy and its implementation in Europe and beyond through a network of National Open Access Desks (NOADs), contacts for the research community in a European country and the OpenAIRE community. DANS and the library of Delft University of Technology are NOAD for the Netherlands. In addition, OpenAIRE provides access to 40 million publications and more than 11 million datasets. In the Netherlands, OpenAIRE harvests the national research portal NARCIS. As a result, the open access publications of Dutch universities and other research organizations can be found via OpenAIRE. OpenAIRE also provides access to the datasets of a number of Dutch data repositories, including EASY (by DANS) en 4TU.ResearchData.
The external sessions are open to everyone (registration required) and take place every day from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. CEST. You can register individually for each session.
