Bill Hubbard, Director of the Centre for Research Communications, will present another free RSP webinar during the celebrations of the 6th International Open Access Week (October 22-28 2012) on "Open Access and the UK funders' policies".

2012 has been an extraordinary year for Open Access, with the "Academic Spring", the Finch report, RLUK policy, the European Commission announcement, the Royal Society report and just lately the "Willetts' Money" which called on instituions for plans for increasing Open Access - and money to do it - and by next March!
 
Bill will discuss issues arising from these developments with suggestions as to how institutions can best respond - and how advocacy within institutions can build on this. This webinar will be of interest to repository administrators, research support offices, library staff and everyone trying to make the best institutional response to these opportunities.
