DSpace endpoint: http://api.openaire.eu/projects/dspace/$fundingStream/ALL/ALL
ePrints endpoint: http://api.openaire.eu/projects/eprints/$fundingStream/ALL/ALL

The URLs embed the parameters needed to collect projects funded by specific funding stream, where the pattern is FundingStream/FundingSubStream/FundingSubSubStream.
Additional parameters can be concatenated to the URL to refine the results by date (date must be in the form YYYY-MM-DD):

  • startFrom
  • startUntil
  • endFrom
  • endUntil
