Open Access to EU-funded research
As a research funder, the European Commission currently requests that research results be make openly accessible in a number of fields:
An Open Access pilot scheme is in place under the 7th Research Framework Programme. It asks recipients of EU funding to publish the results open access. For more information click here.
See the results of a survey undertaken by the Commission on 'Open access in FP7'.
In the future it intends to extend this Open Access pilot scheme to all areas of Commission-funded research under the Horizon 2020 framework programme.
