Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] That is why the Commission will soon present a Communication and a Recommendation proposing the way forward on open access to research results. It will reflect the Commission's decision, in its Innovation Union Flagship policy, to make all outputs from research funded under the EU's own Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation framework programme openly accessible. It will look at the role of e-Infrastructures in supporting open access. And it will also look at the role of rewards that incentivise researchers to share. All together, it will show how widening access to publications and data generates substantial benefits and how we can, together, make the European Research Area a successful enterprise.
