Particularly in the last two years Austria made considerable progress in the area of Open Science, especially in terms of Open Access and Open Data. The foundation of the Open Access Network Austria (OANA) and the launch
of the e-Infrastructures Austria project early 2014 can be seen as important cornerstones of a developing Austrian Open Science landscape. The Austrian Chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation substantially contributes to
Open Science practice- and awareness building as well.
Among others, these initiatives are the basis for setting up a national Open Access strategy as well as a nationwide Open Access and Open (Research) Data infrastructure.
This paper describes these and similar national as well as local Open Science projects and initiatives, and gives a potential overview of Austria’s Open Science future
