extensive Executive summary.

Survey on open access in FP7
European Commission, 7th Framework Programme, (2012)

The European Commission launched in August 2008 the open access pilot in
FP7. It concerns all new projects from that date in seven FP7 research
areas. Grant beneficiaries are expected to deposit peer-reviewed research
articles or final manuscripts resulting from their projects into an online
repository and make their best efforts to ensure open access to those
articles within a set period of time after publication. In addition to the
pilot, FP7 rules of participation also allow all projects to have open
access fees eligible for reimbursement during the time of the grant
agreement. The EU-funded portal OpenAIRE (‘Open Access Infrastructure for
Research in Europe’) has supported the pilot since 2009, with mechanisms
for the identification, deposit, access to and monitoring of FP7-funded

access requirement in FP7.  Three quarters of those respondents with an
opinion would agree or strongly agree with an open access mandate for data
in their research area, providing that all relevant aspects (e.g. ethics,
confidentiality, intellectual property) have been considered and
