Did you know that if you are receiving European Commission's Horizon 2020 Research Framework Programme funding, you have to make all your publications Open Access?

On May 28, 2015, EIFL hosted an OpenAIRE webinar on the Open Access to Publications Mandate in Horizon 2020. The webinar was run by Inge Van Nieuwerburgh (Ghent University – Belgium).

OpenAIRE supports the implementation of the Horizon 2020 OA mandate for publications and its Open Research Data Pilot. It also assists in monitoring Horizon 2020 research outputs and is a key infrastructure for reporting Horizon 2020's scholarly publications.

The OpenAIRE infrastructure interacts with a wide range of research output sources, and interconnects research results (publication and data), linking them to processes that produced them (scientific software, workflows, services, instruments) and releasing them for everyone to see, reuse, and reproduce.

EIFL is one of the 50 OpenAIRE project partners working on this large-scale initiative which aims to promote open scholarship and substantially improve the discoverability and reusability of research publications and data.
