The Summit will also give insight into the OpenAIREplus project, which will link publications to research data, enabling seamless access to scientific knowledge of different types and provenance. The programme will touch on e-Infrastructures, sustainability and building services on top of repositories.
The meeting is organized by OpenAIRE & OpenAIREplus with support of the Directorate Generals for Research (RTD) and for the Information Society and Media (INFSO).
