17 Belgian officials sign the Berlin Declaration

Last week we heard that 13 Belgian university rectors and two government ministers planned to sign the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge on February 13 --today.  But today there are 17 new Belgian signatures on the Declaration:  15 rectors and two ministers.  This is an excellent way for Brussels to welcome the participants in Thursday's EC-hosted conference on OA and scientific publishing.
