Work Context

The OPERAS-P project will start in September 2019 for a period of 24 months and will involve 11 partners in Europe.
One of the aims of the project will be to write OPERAS' application for the ESFRI - European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures roadmap.

OPERAS (Open Access in the European Research Area through Scholarly Communication in SSH) is a pan-European Research Infrastructure on the ESFRI roadmap, in the process of becoming an ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) type consortium. OPERAS is coordinated by two French Research Infrastructures, OpenEdition and Huma-Num.
Huma-Num is a TGIR (Very Large Research Infrastructure) aimed at facilitating the digital shift in research in SHS (Human and Social Sciences). To fulfil this mission, the Huma-Num TGIR is built on an original organization consisting in implementing a human (collective consultation) and technological (sustainable digital services) system at national and European level, supported by a large network of partners and operators. The Huma-Num TGIR is supported by the UMS 3598, which brings together the CNRS, the University of Aix-Marseille and the Condorcet Campus.
