Open Science in Greece: connecting the dots

Objective: Examines operations of the Athena Research Centre in supporting open science in Greece. Methods: Discusses the work involved in the OpenAIRE, RDA Europe and HELIX (Hellenic Data Service) initiatives, and how stakeholder involvement was achieved, along with necessary training. Findings: The case study demonstrates the importance of collaboration, developing infrastructure, supporting necessary legislation, and providing services (e.g. for data management). Conclusions: Monitoring and support services are necessary to enable compliance with open science and FAIR best practice in data management. Progress so far is aligned with European directives and recommendations.
