Bravo Teesside!

And since then, INRA (France) and U. Nottingham (UK) have announced the second and third institutional mandates of the Open Access Week 2010 Mandate Adoption Challenge  http://www.openaccessweek.org/events/oa-mandate-adoption-challenge-1

You can follow the daily progress of the OA Week OA Challenge on Alma Swan's OASIS http://bit.ly/OAweekMandates and EOS http://bit.ly/OAweekMandates2 [click twice] sites.

Please register any adopted or proposed mandates in ROARMAP, and encourage everyone else to do so too!
