Romania became an EIFL project country in 2009 with the launch of the of the European Commission (EC) funded OpenAIRE (Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe) project.
The project, which EIFL is coordinating activities for in 10 Eastern European countries, launched an e-infrastructure and created a network of experts to support researchers in meeting the requirements of the (openaire.eu/oa-policies-mandates) EC open access policies (which will make all research funded by the EC open access).
The EIFL Open Access Programme is working in partnership with Kosson – a Romanian information science community.

EIFL is also involved in public library development in Romania. In 2014 we supported Arad County Library to address media and information literacy issues by introducing an innovative library service for youth.
