Next steps The Framework Programmes • Monitor OA in FP7 and Horizon 2020 • Provide 360° support More training and guidance e.g. on Data Management Plan • Adapt OA mandates of Horizon 2020 – or not Working together • Get more knowledge on open research data • Mainstream Open Access and reach towards harmonised policies and common standards on a global scale • Develop more and better interactions with stakeholders • And much more...
