Sounds very good – Austrian researchers (at least those funded by the FWF) get all of their IOP-published research open access without it costing anything extra for the country. Hope this spreads to other publishers.
Congratulations, +Falk Reckling

"The Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the Austrian Academic Consortium (Kooperation E-Medien Österreich), the Austrian Central Library for Physics at the University of Vienna and IOP Publishing (IOP) have today announced a new pilot project that will provide advance funding for Austrian researchers to publish on a hybrid open access basis in IOP’s subscription journals and which will offset that funding against subscription and licence fees paid by the Austrian Academic Consortium for access to IOP’s journals."
