Institute of Social Science signed the Manifesto for EU Covid-19 Research

The Institute of Social Science in Belgrade signed the Manifesto for EU Covid-19 Research, lunched by the European Commission.

The Manifesto for EU covid-19 Research is part of the EU Coronavirus response, aimed at maximising 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. The goal is to ensure that no one is left behind in the fight against Covid-19, and that solutions will be developed, produced and deployed to every single corner of the world.

By endorsing the Manifesto, the Institute joins the fight against coronavirus by committing to:

  • Make the generated results, whether tangible or intangible, public and accessible without delay;
  • Make scientific papers and research data available in open access without delay and following the FAIR principles via preprint servers or public repositories. In particular, make COVID-19 research data available through the European COVID-19 Data Platform.
  • Where possible, grant for a limited time, non-exclusive royalty free licences on the intellectual property resulting from EU-funded research.
