Open Access and EU Funded Projects

The Department of Research Issues (Referat für Forschungsangelegenheiten, Dezernat 1) provides advisory service for EU research project applicants and helps to determine whether researchers are obliged to make research results freely accessible if they have received external funding.

The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, stipulates that all Horizon 2020 publications shall be published according to Open Access principles. Researchers are free to choose between the Golden or the Green Road of Open Access.

Dezernat 1 offers comprehensive advice throughout the application process to assure every applicant knows about potential Open Access obligations and thus to enable applicants to plan publication costs accordingly.

Amongst others, advisory services of Dezernat 1 comprise:

  • Information about directives on financial support of research projects
  • Assistance with cost calculations
  • Provision of text modules describing the Potsdam University Open Access strategy (currently for Horizon 2020 applications only)
