National Library of Sweden represented in OpenAIRE Executive Board
Last week the General Assembly of OpenAIRE voted for new members of the Executive Board. One of the newly appointed members is Anna Lundén, Head of the Department of research collaboration at the National Library.
–I am very proud to contribute to such a successful and important infrastructure for Open Science as OpenAIRE, says Anna Lundén. OpenAIRE has built up a robust pan-European network for Open Science over the years. This work has resulted both in valuable services such as Zenodo, and stable connections with global organisations such as SPARC and EIFL.
–OpenAIRE, Anna Lundén continues, with its connections and services already in place, will serve as an important partner in building up and establishing the European Open Science Cloud, EOSC, in particular the support and training needed for EOSC to become the hub for Open Science in Europe.
Sweden is represented in OpenAIRE by The National Library as National Open Access Desk, NOAD.
OpenAIRE works to shift scholarly communication towards openness and transparency and facilitate innovative ways to communicate and monitor research. The vision is to transform society through validated scientific knowledge. Allow citizens, educators, funders, civil servants and industry find ways to make science useful for themselves, their working environments, the society.
