"The OpenAIRE central service for funding requests at collects requests for funding from eligible FP7 projects. Researchers can request funds either directly through this system, or ask their project coordinator pr research library staff to submit on their behalf.

Upon every submission, the project coordinator will get notified via an automated e-mail - if necessary, they can object to the funding via an e-mail  to the pilot.

Institutions and research libraries have been briefed about this pilot and can help out with submission and eligibility criteria.
