National open-access strategy for Switzerland

The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) has entrusted swissuniversities with the creation of a national strategy for open access.

At the beginning of December 2015, SERI State Secretary Mauro Dell'Ambrogio asked swissuniversities to take charge of compiling a national strategy for open access in collaboration with the Swiss National Science Foundation.

As far as open access is concerned, SERI sees a need for a coordinated approach in Switzerland.

The swissuniversities Board accepted the request and assigned the task to the Strategic Planning Delegation, which also includes representatives of ETH Zurich.
