Open Science in practice in FP9

OpenAIRE has issued some recommendations for solidifying and advancing open science in FP9. 

FP9 is about carrying out research through mission oriented goals, co-creation and co-design, and is about responsible and reproducible research that provides sustainable approaches to societal problems in an ever growing arena of data where fact-checking and evidence policy are in the centre.

It is thus more important than ever to strengthen Open Science in its many incarnations and empower Europe via a collaborative approach to open infrastructures for open science, across all borders and all domains.

Open Access Pilot in FP7


All research builds on former work, and depends on scientists’ possibilities to access and share scientific information. The advent of the internet and electronic publishing have resulted in unprecedented possibilities for the dissemination and exchange of information. ‘Open access’, defined as free access over the internet, aims to improve and promote the dissemination of knowledge, thereby improving the efficiency of scientific discovery and maximising return on investment in R&D by public research funding bodies.

The European Commission is conducting a pilot initiative on open access to peer reviewed research articles in its Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7). In this pilot, open access to articles resulting from research funded in the seven areas participating in the pilot should be provided within a specified time period.

The European Commission launched the open access pilot in August 2008 and  it will run until the end of FP7.

It requires grant recipients in seven areas to "deposit peer reviewed research articles or final manuscripts resulting from their FP7 projects into an online repository and make their best efforts to ensure open access to these articles".


The seven areas are:

  1. Energy
  2. Environment (including Climate Change)
  3. Health
  4. Information and Communication Technologies (Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics)
  5. Research Infrastructures (e-infrastructures)
  6. Science in society
  7. Socio-economic sciences and the humanities

Open access to these publications is to be ensured within

  • six months after publication in the first five areas listed  
  • twelve months in the last two areas listed.
