Through the annual State of Open Infrastructure report, IOI aims to surface trends, patterns, issues and gaps in investment in and adoption of open infrastructure for research and scholarship, in order to identify areas that may benefit from change or intervention. We also tell success stories of open infrastructures that demonstrate and elevate their value and viability. 

The 2024 State of Open Infrastructure report provides exclusive data and analysis from this investigation of open infrastructure’s attributes and issues impacting them, including funding, governance, adoption, and policy development. By viewing open infrastructure through multiple lenses, we offer a holistic understanding of the open infrastructure ecosystem. 

In addition, it integrates perspectives from multiple stakeholders to track the open infrastructure sector’s key trends and emerging opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and investment. This report also offers strategic insights and actionable recommendations to help stakeholders navigate change and complexity in research and higher education, make informed decisions, and mitigate risks.
