Hi all,

The EU press release<http://europa.eu/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/12/790&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=en>concerning
the open access to data and publications notes

The European Commission will continue to fund projects related to open
access. In 2012-2013, the Commission will spend €45 million on data
infrastructures andresearch on digital preservation. Funding will continue
under the Horizon 2020 programme. During the same period, the Commission
will support experimentation with new ways of handling scientific
information (e.g. new peer-review methods and ways of measuring article

I would think that our efforts with OA index and scientific communities
with topical databases are also eligible for funding as "new ways of
handling scientific information"
What do you think?
