Creating a Robust Accessible Federated Technology for Open Access
CRAFT-OA project aims to create resilient landscape, a robust pan-European network of infrastructures that will take into account local capacities, and leverage existing systems, while providing upper-level expertise to enable upscaling, professionalisation and consortial momentum. Instead of recreating new platforms, the aim is to strengthen existing ones by central expertise, collaboration and a joint visibility/indexing layer. CRAFT-OA will deliver technical and community tools, training events, training materials, information, and services for the Diamond OA institutional publishing environment. It will foster communities of practice with the capacity to sustain the project improvements over time.
