About

THOR is a 30 month project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. It will establish seamless integration between articles, data, and researchers across the research lifecycle. This will create a wealth of open resources and foster a sustainable international e-infrastructure. The result will be reduced duplication, economies of scale, richer research services, and opportunities for innovation.

Activities

As well as coordinating the THOR project, that British Library is involved in a number of THOR activities. These include working to integrate the technical developments of THOR into our own systems, and working with UK organisations to ensure they can take advantage of THOR developments.

There will be a number of events held by the THOR project. These will focus on promotion of and training on new tools, as well as opportunities to feedback on their development. News of upcoming events will be shared through the project’s Twitter account, @project_thor_eu.
