Joint press conference by Neelie Kroes and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn on the European Research Area (ERA)

360 views

On 17 July 2012, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, and Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of the Digital Agenda, gave a press conference on completing the European Research Area (ERA) and on open access to scientific information, in Brussels. On this occasion, they outlined measures to improve access to scientific information produced in Europe. Broader and more rapid access to scientific papers and data will make it easier for researchers and businesses to build on the findings of public-funded research. This will boost Europe's innovation capacity and give citizens quicker access to the benefits of scientific discoveries. In this way, it will give Europe a better return on its €87 billion annual investment in R&D. The measures complement the Commission's Communication to achieve ERA. As a first step, the Commission will make open access to scientific publications a general principle of Horizon 2020, the EU's Research & Innovation funding programme for 2014-2020. As of 2014, all articles produced with funding from Horizon 2020 will have to be accessible. The Commission has also recommended that Member States take a similar approach to the results of research funded under their own domestic programmes. The goal is for 60% of European publicly-funded research articles to be available under open access by 2016.
