Connected Open Identifiers for Discovery, Access and Use of Research Resources

The FREYA project

FREYA was a 3-year project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project started in december 2017 and ended in december 2020. It aimed to build the infrastructure for persistent identifiers as a core component of open science, in the EU and globally. FREYA worked to improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access of research resources. New provenance services  enabled researchers to better evaluate data and make the scientific record more complete, reliable, and traceable. By engaging with the global community through the Research Data Alliance and other research infrastructures, we worked together to realise the vision of fully and effectively accessible data.
