Introduction of open research data in all new Horizon 2020 calls

Today, the European Commission announced an investment of €8.5 billion to be released during 2017 into research and innovation, following an update to the Work Programme of Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation funding programme.

The updated Work Programme builds on the success of Horizon 2020 to date, but introduces important novelties. A particularly important change is the introduction of open research data in all new Horizon 2020 calls and the strong commitment to research integrity and simplification as a driver for research quality. For projects funded under the programme, free online access to scientific data will become the norm. This move will boost competitiveness through open science by accelerating innovation and collaboration, improving transparency, and avoiding duplication of efforts.

Horizon 2020 beneficiaries are encouraged to also share datasets beyond these publications. Projects can "opt-out" of these provisions in case of conflicts with IPR, personal data protection, national security or other concerns.
