Horizon Europe is the European Commission’s 2021-2027 research funding programme for research and innovation. One of the main differences with the previous Framework Program, Horizon 2020, is the inclusion of Open Science in different sections of the grant proposal and within that the realisation of the research and innovation process. In particular, the legal provisions in the grant agreements aim to strengthen the Open Access rights and obligations for beneficiaries and to meet the requirements of open science for both publications and data.
“Open science has the potential to increase the quality, efficiency and impact of R&I, lead to greater responsiveness to societal challenges, and increase trust of society in the science system.”
OpenAIRE has prepared three guides aimed at researchers who wish to take part in funding calls. These guides are intended to supplement the guides already available through the EC and aim to provide a more digestible format in which the relevant information can be referenced and which will aid proposal writing.
