Research data is becoming increasingly available and terms like ‘Open Access’ and ‘Open Science’ are used frequently. OpenAIRE supports Open Access in Europe, making data more accessible for research communities. The EU-funded EaPConnect project supports these goals by planning activities to accelerate the engagement of Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries. OpenAIRE, with which EaPConnect and the GÉANT organisation collaborate, causes great interest in EaP countries and on 19 February 2021, an online workshop about OpenAIRE was organised by EaPConnect and partner AzScienceNet for researchers at the Institute of Information Technology of the Azerbaijanian National Academy of Sciences (IIT of ANAS).
