HFSP is a voluntary international effort by countries committed to promoting frontier research in the life sciences. The scientific scope of the Program is to support innovative basic research into fundamental biological problems with emphasis on novel and interdisciplinary approaches that involve scientific exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries. Dependent on the public funds of our members, it is our statutory mandate “to make the fullest possible utilization of the research results for the benefit of all humankind.” Therefore HFSP wants to share the results of its funded projects in the broadest possible way - not just among researchers but also with other sectors and the general public. To improve access to results originating from HFSP funded research the following statement on open access publishing was approved by the HFSPO Board of Trustees at its meeting in March 2014.
HFSP supports novel, innovative and interdisciplinary basic research focused on the complex mechanisms of living organisms. A clear emphasis is placed on novel collaborations that bring biologists together to focus on problems at the frontier of the life sciences.
