Within the main goal of supporting an open access strategy in the European Research Area, the specific aim of the TO.ACTION project is to spread - among all the relevant stakeholders and agents in the knowledge circulation process -a culture of open access to scientific results generated by publicly funded research. The project relies on a circular mechanism that allows a continuous and dynamic updating of the training actions and contents, a mechanism able to persist even after the project completion. TO.ACTION will enable easier access to the research literature and may speed up the progress of science itself. The project will do so through initiatives that will raise awareness of OA among a range of other stakeholder groups who are essentially consumers (rather than producers) of OA information. These groups would benefit from a better understanding of the potential that OA represents for their respective goals and the skills needed to access and exploit OA outputs.
