The European Commission has recently launched a pilot action to fund open access peer-reviewed publications from finalized FP7 projects. This initiative is implemented by the project OpenAIRE2020. If you or your FP7 project partners are planning to publish peer-reviewed articles in Open Access journals after the end of the project you might be able to use the funds made available through this pilot to cover the publication fees (Article Processing Charges or APCs). Also open access monographs, book chapters or conference proceedings can be funded if these are occurring after the end of the grant (and not eligible for reimbursement from the project budget).
You can find more information on the post-grant pilot in the Participant Portal or directly on the website of ОрепАГОЕ.
