Open Access: EU Policy

Horizon 2020 OA Policy

“Open access will be mandatory for all publications produced with funding from Horizon 2020, and contributions to the costs for such publications will be eligible for reimbursement. The nature of the open access publications, whether through “gold” or “green” routes, will be left to the discretion of the grant recipient.”
Horizon 2020 started in January 2014.  Advice on incorporating open access into a Horizon 2020 bid is available through the Research Funding Office. The Research Funding Office can be contacted at
