Open Research Europe is a significant step towards ensuring that all Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe publications are fully open access. It is a publishing service for Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe beneficiaries at no cost to them, with quick publication times without editorial barriers, but with a rigorous and open peer review process. The open access model enables everyone to access the results: the global scientific community as well as the wider public.
