A fundamental principle of the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe’s mission is to increase access to European Jewish heritage and culture.

To that end, any Foundation-funded project must ensure the material catalogued, conserved, preserved, or digitised is freely accessible to the public.

For Jewish Communal Life we ask that any Foundation-funded project should enable free access to educational resources resulting from the project. The Foundation expects a collegial and generous attitude towards sharing material with other professionals, organisations and communities.

For Academic Jewish Studies, we encourage grantees to publish their Foundation-funded research in peer-reviewed journals with an open access option, and to make their articles freely accessible whenever possible. Should an article based on the research funded by this fellowship be accepted for publication, grantees may apply to the Foundation for funding to cover costs associated with open access publication, such as article processing charges.
