What does Horizon 2020 mean for research libraries? - LIBER

If you have been paying attention to European Commission activities, you will have noticed that the Horizon 2020 (H2020) work programme has been released. Designed to boost Europe’s knowledge driven economy, H2020 will provide a whopping €15 billion worth of funding for research and innovation activities in Europe and beyond over the next two years. What does this mean for LIBER members? We believe that libraries are at the centre of a knowledge driven economy. European funding has been an important aid to LIBER libraries as they work to develop innovative services and infrastructures that support researchers in creating world class research.

In the 8 projects that LIBER was involved in under the previous funding programme, FP7, nearly 10% of LIBER’s members (around 35 libraries) were partners. H2020 offers libraries the opportunity to further embed themselves with the European research infrastructure. How do I get involved? The first step is to read the work programmes. L'Open Access, c'est quoi ? Welcome to Ranking Web of Repositories. Untitled. Libre accès : les chercheurs défendent leurs travaux et l’esprit d’Internet.

Libre accès : les chercheurs défendent leurs travaux et l’esprit d’Internet

Depuis peu, elles paraissent converger vers un mouvement de fond unique et irrépressible. On pourrait presque parler d’une révolution scientifique au sens littéral : il ne s’agit pas de proposer une nouvelle représentation de l’homme et du monde, mais de remettre radicalement en cause les structures économiques et sociales de l’activité scientifique. En février, l’hebdomadaire anglais The Economist tentait de résumer cette révolte multiforme en une seule expression : le « printemps académique ».

Report of the Working Group on Expanding Access to Published Research Findings – the Finch Group The Government announced on 16 July 2012 that it has accepted the recommendations of the Working Group on Expanding Access to Published Research Findings, chaired by Dame Janet Finch.

Finch Report - Research Information Network

The RIN provided the secretariat and drafted the report Accessibility, sustainability, excellence: how to expand access to research publications, which was published on 18 June – the full report and its executive summary are attached below. The report recommended a balanced programme of action to enable more people to read and use the publications arising from research, and to accelerate the progress towards a fully open access environment. The report made clear that several different channels for communicating research results will remain important over the next few years.
