Horizon 2020 IPR Factsheet and Open Access Guidelines
This fact sheet intends to assist applicants in Horizon 2020 with the management of intellectual property in the proposal stage of their project. Even though Horizon 2020 research and innovation activities are implemented through different forms of funding, particularly grants, prizes, procurement and financial instruments, this fact sheet deals solely with grants. This fact sheet is the first of a series of three fact sheets dealing with the management of intellectual property in the different stages of a Horizon 2020 project.
The EC has also produced guidelines that provide context and explanation for the rules on open access applicable to beneficiaries in projects funded or co-funded under Horizon 2020.
