"In August 2008, the European Commission launched the 'Open Access Pilot in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)', intended to provide researchers and other interested members of the public with improved online access to EU-funded research results. The pilot aims to permit easy and free access to scientific information, in particular peer-reviewed scientific articles published in journals. Articles covered by the pilot will become accessible after an embargo period of 6 or 12 months, depending on the FP7 area....The pilot, which will run until the end of FP7, covers approximately 20 % of the FP7 research budget."
