IOI and Infra Finder




Open Science, Open Infrastructure, Sustainability, Marketing, Open Source


Invest in Open Infrastructure (IOI) is a non-profit initiative specialising in undertaking research on infrastructure tailor-made for open science and in discussing their findings with stakeholders to increase the investment in, and adoption of, open infrastructure. With a team of eight based in Europe, the USA and Africa, IOI also supports the adoption of open infrastructure through research-based funding pilots such as the IOI Fund. Its most recent tool is a collaboratively developed, openly available database designed to help institutions identify and evaluate open infrastructure solutions. This database, the Infra Finder, at the time of its launch contains structured information on 57 infrastructure providers that can be compared in a side-by-side view.
