euroCRIS is involved in various international projects, among which EU-funded projects.
PASTEUR4OA (Open Access Policy Alignment Strategies for European Union Research) aims to support the European Commission’s Recommendation to Member States of July 2012 that they develop and implement policies to ensure Open Access to all outputs from publicly-funded research.
PASTEUR4OA will help develop and/or reinforce open access strategies and policies at the national level and facilitate their coordination among all Member States. It will build a network of centres of expertise in Member States that will develop a coordinated and collaborative programme of activities in support of policymaking at the national level under the direction of project partners.

The project goals are:
To provide a reference system able to reliably check and confirm CERIF compatibility of
- (a) CERIF-CRIS software platforms (e.g. PURE, CONVERIS, Symplectic Elements, Research in View, etc.) and
- (b) individual operational CERIF-CRIS systems currently in production, for example institutional, national or international CRIS (e.g. OpenAIREplus, EuroRIs-Net+).
To develop an open system that will be available for any interested party to study and understand CERIF down to the implementation level.
