    Research Infrastructures EU strategy and opportunities for cooperation

    Odessa, November 1, 2011

  • Facilities, resources, and related services used by the scientific communityMajor scientific equipmentScientific collections, archives and structured informationICT-based infrastructuresExtending the frontiers of knowledgeExchanging and transmitting knowledgeTraining the next generation of top researchersSupporting industrial innovation

  • Importance of a European approach for Research Infrastructures

    To open access to instruments and services not available in one country, and improve services

    To connect national research communities and increase the overall quality of the research

    To share construction and operation costs

    To develop interoperability of facilities and resources To exchange best practice

    To become an international partner

  • FP7 actions for Research InfrastructuresOptimising the use and development of the best existing research infrastructures in EuropeE-InfrastructuresIntegrating Activities

    Helping to create in all fields of S&T new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the European scientific communityDesign studies Preparatory Phase of ESFRI projects Implementation Phase of ESFRI projects

  • Integrating Activities ObjectiveTo bring together and integrate, on a European scale, key research infrastructures in a given class, in order to promote their coordinated use and developmentMandatory activitiesNetworking ActivitiesTrans-national Access and/or Service Activities Joint Research Activities

  • Design Studies

    Objectives: to contribute to conceptual design studies for new research infrastructures , that demonstrates a clear European dimension and interest.Major upgrades of existing infrastructures may also be considered, when the end result is the develpmemnt of a new type or form of research infrastructure with a clear value at European levelOpen for all fields of S&T

  • Preparatory phase

    Objectives: to provide catalytic and leveraging support for the preparatory phase leading to the construction of new RIsBuilding primarily upon the work conducted by ESFRIBringing the project to the level of legal and financial maturityInvolving all the necessary stakeholders to make the project move forward, take decision, etc.Activities: legal work, governance, strategic work, financial work and, if necessary, technical work

  • Implementation phase

    Objectives: to support the actual implementation of new research infrastructures (or major upgrades of existing ones). The implementation phase should include all appropriate coordination activities as well as the relevant technical work.

  • Support to policy development and programme implementation

    Objectives: to enhance the effectiveness and coherence of national and Community research policies, international cooperation and the analysis of emerging needs in the field of RIs

  • ESFRI European Strategy Forum on Research InfrastructuresSet up by the EU Council of Research Ministers in 2002Brings together representatives of Ministers of the 27 Member States, 10 Associated States, and of the European CommissionSupports a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy making on Research InfrastructuresMandate to develop a Roadmap (2006) and its updates (2008, 2010) contains 48 projectsrequiring major financial investment (~20 b) and long term commitment for operation (~2 b/year)

  • Implementation A combination of resources from national budgets, Community programmes, EIB instruments and structural funds should lead to the development of excellent research infrastructures throughout Europe Competitiveness (Internal Market, Industry and Research) Council of March 5-6, 2009

  • National Roadmaps for Research InfrastructuresRoadmap in place Roadmap under preparationNational funding reserved for new/updated RIs

  • ERIC: European Research Infrastructure ConsortiumA new legal framework, at EU level, to facilitate the joint establishment and operation of Research Infrastructures of European interest among several countries

    A legal personality recognised in all EU Member States

    Non-EU countries can be members

    Current status:First ERIC status awarded to SHARE on 17 March 2011Other applications under progress CLARIN, ECRIN, EuroArgo

  • Europe 2020, the European strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth (COM(2010) 2020)

    Seven flagship initiatives

    Innovation Union flagship initiative:Endorsed by Heads of State in early 2011 Comprehensive set of actions to stimulate research and innovationSeamless support from basic science to the support of market implementation of innovative developments

    EU perspectives

  • opening of Member State operated research infrastructures to the full European user community

    By 2015 () have completed or launched the construction of 60% of the priority European research infrastructures currently identified by the ESFRI (). The Member States are invited to review their Operational Programmes to facilitate the use of cohesion policy money for this purpose.

    The European Union should step up its cooperation on the roll-out of the global research infrastructures Research Infrastructures Commitments within Innovation Union

  • The European programme for Research and Innovation for the period 20142020

    Building on the activities of the current FP7, the Competitiveness and Innovation programme (CIP) and the European Institute for Technology (EIT), with three pillars: Excellent science baseIndustrial leadership and competitive frameworksTackling societal challenges

  • 1. Optimise the use and development of European RIsSupport the development, implementation and operation of ESFRI projects and other major infrastructures of European wide relevanceFacilitate the integration of and access to national research infrastructuresSupport the development, deployment and operation of ICT-based e-Infrastructures

    2. Foster the human and innovation potential of RIsStrengthen the technological innovation potential of RIsStrengthen the human potential of RIs

    3. Reinforce the consistency of the European Research Infrastructure policy

  • ERA framework

    Heads of State and Government set out in Feb. 2011 the ambitious goal of completing the ERA by 2014 with the creation of a single market for knowledge, research and innovation.

    Public consultation on the Framework launched on Sept.13 (until 30 November 2011)
