Research organisations are moving to new models of sharing publications and data among communities in order to overcome limitations of current publishing systems: free and open access, data and publication associations, etc.
INFN and other organisations, both public and private, have signed a global initiative launched by Science Europe, named Plan S, aimed at moving the state funded research works in open repositories or journal available to all.

In this context, we have updated the pilot of the INFN Open Access Repository, that is operational since 2014, to a version that is compliant with Plan S requirements. Starting from Zenodo code, that powers the EC flagship repository with the same name, developed by CERN in the context of the OpenAIRE series of projects, we customised the implementation to add
features useful for INFN.

These include the integration with INFN-AAI for the authentication, configurable look and feel, data migration from previous repository and some fixes. Additionally, we have developed yaml files describing all micro services behind Zenodo for an automated deployment on a Kubernetes-based

The repository is open for testing by all INFN staff and associated researchers and people from other organisations are also investigating it, already. We are currently preparing a Conceptual Design Report for the updater repository for evaluation by the INFN management and we will report
on it.
