Open Access

Brigita Serafinavičiūtė. Open Science - the essential ingredient of our future?
3O - is the new popular abbreviation in the European Research Area. Pushed forward by Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation it stands for "Open Science, Open Innovation, Open to the World". What is the ideology behind this? Maybe it is just a nicely coined catchy expression? What is the role of Open Science for our future? How far have we gone towards this vision?

Gintarė Tautkevičienė and Ieva Cesevičiūtė. Open Science in Horizon 2020: OpenAIRE Support for Researchers, Research Managers and Funders
Access to scientific information accelerates research, discovery and economic development. For more than a decade libraries take part in the open access movement to develop an environment which provides access to scientific information. Open access stakeholders and experts are working together to achieve these aims. The presentation will elaborate on the infrastructure of open access which bridges the gap between academia and society by sharing research findings in new ways. 
OpenAIRE is an initiative by the European Commission for an Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe to support open scholarly communication, Open Science and access to the research output of the European funded projects. The infrastructure of OpenAIRE supports the Open Science policy implemented in the programme Horizon2020 by the European Commission.
