Open Science is a broad term, covering the developments in how science is becoming more open, accessible, efficient, democratic, and transparent. In this issue, we have a special focus on Open Science, featuring just some of what is being done and how it will benefit not only researchers, but everyone!
In this issue, we also report on the recent "Quantum Technologies and Industry" workshop, and present highlights from the Graphene Week held in June.
The last cut-off date for the FET Open call is 29 September 2015. The Work Programme 2016-2017 will be presented during the ICT 2015 event (20-22 October in Lisbon), which will gather many other activities, including a conference, exhibition and networking sessions. We will come back in September with more info about it. In the meantime, enjoy the summer period!

Top News
Report from the workshop on Quantum Technologies and Industry
A participatory workshop on Quantum Technologies and Industry was held in Brussels on 6 May 2015. The aim was to identify what could be the markets for quantum technologies, and how these could be industrialised. The workshop report summarises the discussions and the action plan which emerged as a conclusion.
Reporting from Graphene Week 2015: interesting articles, videos, audio files
From 22-26 June, more than 600 participants (scientists, students, representatives of industrial companies) attended the Graphene Week conference in Manchester (UK). Graphene Week is the most important event staged by the flagship in 2015. If you missed it you can find here a selection of video interviews, on line articles & audio files. Enjoy the reading!
Human Brain Project - "Systems & Cognitive Neuroscience" call has closed
The Human Brain Project (HBP) FET Flagship held a Call for Expressions of Interest on "Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience". The call closed on 7th July and 58 proposals were submitted. These proposals will be evaluated in the summer period and the results will be announced by mid-September. Successful proposers will be introduced in the HBP Consortium in the next, H2020 phase of the Flagship.

Focus on Open Science
New trends in Open Science
Open Science is a broad term, covering the many exciting developments in how science is becoming more open, accessible, efficient, democratic, and transparent. This Open Science revolution is being driven by new, digital tools for scientific collaboration, experiments and analysis and which make scientific knowledge more easily accessible by professionals and the general public, anywhere, at any time.
OpenAIRE is growing and now gathers over 11.5 million documents in open access
OpenAIRE stands for Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe, and its mission is to gather the metadata of research output (publications and associated research) funded by the European Commission.
This newsletter "FET through the keyhole" is published periodically by the FET and Flagships units, Part of the "European Commission Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology", and the FET Open unit, Part of the "Research Executive Agency of the European Commission".
