The Universities Austria (UNIKO)-founded
OSA – Open Science Austria initiative serves as the new national contact point for networking activities and information surrounding Open Science at Austrian universities.

The Open Science Network Austria (OANA) and its activities have been discontinued. We would like to thank everyone involved in OANA activities in the years 2012-2021 and everyone who supported the network's work towards Open Science.

National activities

In addition to OANA, there is a large number of projects and initiatives in Austria that focus on Open Science. 

The Austrian Academic Library Consortium (KEMÖ) negotiates Open Access agreements with publishers.

In addition to these Open Access agreements, a large number of Open Science infrastructures and platforms are (co)financed by Austrian institutions.

Finally, we provide information on international Open Science initiatives and projects that Austrian representatives are actively involved in.
