Open access mandate

Open access to scientific publications is now mandatory for all scientific publications resulting from EU H2020 funded projects. Failure to comply with the H2020 policy may result in a reduction of the grant.

IMPORTANT! H2020 policy does not require you to pay open access fees to publish your research! Just make sure to deposit the accepted manuscript in our HAL open access repository and set a 6-month embargo, in compliance with both H2020 policy and the French Digital Law.
