On October 26th, 2021, OAPEN held a webinar specifically for ERC-funded researchers on how to make their books available open access, ensuring they comply with their funder’s mandate. The recording for this webinar can be found here.

Additional materials relevant for ERC-funded researchers such as a flyer, the presentation slides and a short Q&A document can all be publicly accessed here
