Open Access is increasingly becoming a standard for scientific publishing, is demanded by important research funders and pushed forward politically.

We learn first-hand about the EU's perspective on this topic and receive two reports from scientists at the University of Mannheim. The focus of the event is on the concrete implementation for you as a researcher and the support options available.
