On to the update …

What we are working on:

  • We shared findings from our preliminary investigation into supporting open infrastructure for preprints. In exploring preprint services and infrastructure as a case study for how we can support critical research infrastructure, we conducted this preliminary investigation to ask: what is the current situation with preprints and open infrastructure for them, and how could IOI pursue work to further investment and sustain activities in this space? Read our report to find out more.
  • We organized our first in-person retreat. The team got together in Catskills, New York to connect with each other and discuss our vision and roadmap ahead. We will share insights from the event soon!
  • We are organizing our first Funders Summit, Oct 31 - Nov 4, online! This convening aims to bring together funders, budget holders, and key stakeholders involved in the financing and resourcing of open infrastructure. If you’re interested in joining us, please reach out to contact [at] investinopen [dot] org for an invitation.
