FP7 Post-grant Open Access publishing funds pilot

The European Commission launched the FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot early in 2015, https://www.openaire.eu/postgrantoapilot, to fund Open Access publishing fees for publications arising from finished FP7 projects through the OpenAIRE project. This Pilot provides funding for Article Processing Charges (APCs) and for Book Processing Charges (BPCs) for FP7 projects up to two years after they have ended. The FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot provides an additional instrument to improve access to research results from FP7 projects, but it does not affect authors’ choice on how their project publications are made Open Access. To check whether your FP7 funded project may be eligible for funding have a look at the following check-list for submitting  a successful funding request – GoldOAPilot_Checklist_2016
