finanziamento di migliorie tecniche da apportare alle piattaforme   di 
riviste ad accesso aperto che  hanno  pubblicato  articoli risultanti da 
progetti FP7  e che non possono usufruire del finanziamento previsto nel

Dear all, please share this public webinar announcement with your networks.

Are you publishing an APC-free OA journal on a shoestring?

We would like to invite you to join the OpenAIRE webinar and learn more 
about the new OpenAIRE call for proposals to fund APC-free Open Access 
journals and platforms 
<https://www.openaire.eu/are-you-publishing-your-apc-free-oa-journal-on-a-shoestring> under 
the alternative funding mechanism of the FP7 Post-Grant Open Access 
Pilot. The webinar will be held on Thursday, 12 May 2016 at 10:00 CEST.

Besides funding APCs, *OpenAIRE would like to also offer a funding 
opportunity for APC-free OA journals under the **EC Gold Open Access 
Pilot <https://www.openaire.eu/postgrantoapilot>**: after all, two 
thirds of the journals listed in the DOAJ charge no APCs to their 
authors. So a call for proposals has been put together that will allow 
these journals and/or platforms and publishers to apply for funding for 
improving their publishing workflows along a number of suggested lines.**
*A maximum of €200,000 will be awarded to up to 12 bid**s****to perform
- *technical improvements on APC-free OA journals such as becoming 
OpenAIRE compatible,
- systematically collecting funding information in the article metadata or
-   implementing ORCID.

In order to be eligible for funding, such journals must have published 
(or accepted for publication) eligible articles arising from finished 
FP7 projects during the last year.

*The call for proposals **will remain open until the 30th of June**,* 
and bid assessment will be done during the month of July. The selected 
proposals will be announced in early August and will have until the 30th 
of April 2017 to carry out the proposed improvements.

We invite you to join this webinar and learn more about the requirements 
for applying for funding under this call. The webinar will be led by 
Pablo de Castro, from LIBER, the coordinating institution for the FP7 
Post-Grant OA Pilot, and will address the following topics:

  * Timeschedule for this alt-funding initiative
  * Requirements for eligibility
  * How to submit a funding application

The second part of the webinar will be a Q&A session where questions 
about this funding initiative will be answered.

****Date***: 12 May 2016**
***Time*: 10:00 CEST**
*Target audience*: APC-free OA journal/platform publishers, institutions 
and libraries.
