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.


OANA is a think tank on the topic of Open Science, with an open structure and no legal form.

Our goals are: 

  • the exchange of ideas
  • the coordination and connection of initiatives
  • the development of recommendations on Open Science

OANA aims to act as a contact point and source of information for researchers, research institutions, and (research) policy makers.
