The European Commission has launched a manifesto to maximise the accessibility of research results in the fight against COVID-19. The manifesto provides guiding principles for beneficiaries of EU research grants for coronavirus prevention, testing, treatment and vaccination to ensure that their research results will be accessible for all and guarantee a return on public investment.
Public and private stakeholders benefitting from EU funding are invited to subscribe the document and provide their support and endorsement.
EPTRI endorsed the manifesto and committed to make the generated results public and accessible without delay as well as to make scientific papers and research data available in open access without delay and following the FAIR principles via preprint servers or public repositories, with rights for others to build upon the publications and data and with access to the tools needed for their validation. In particular, the aim is to make COVID-19 research data available through the European COVID-19 Data Platform.
At this link it is possible to find all the stakeholders who have already subscribed the manifesto.
