OpenAIRE's 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. OpenAIRE's mission is to shift scholarly communication towards openness and transparency and facilitate innovative ways to communicate and monitor research. OpenAIRE’s mission is closely linked to the mission of the European Commission: to provide unlimited, barrier free, open access to research outputs financed by public funding in Europe. OpenAIRE fulfils the EOSC vision substantially, as its operations already provide the glue for many of the user and research driven functionalities, whether these come from the long tail of science (repositories and local support) or domain disciplined research communities or Research Infrastructures. OpenAIRE is a participatory initiative from its onset. The current governance structure consists of three bodies: the General Assembly (decision making body), the Executive Board (steering) and the Management Office (daily activities). Our network of 34 European National Open Access Desks are experts in open access and open science. They are embedded in national infrastructures and settings voicing the needs of the research community. OpenAIRE operates a distributed management office with dedicated people that carry out the day to day activities, and provide the necessary leadership to coordinate the multiple facets of open science in Europe.
