Work programme

The official WP2016-2017 is avaible. A short overview can be found hereunder

Research infrastructures (RI) are facilities, resources and services that are used by the research communities to conduct research and foster innovation in their fields. They include: major scientific equipment (or sets of instruments); knowledge-based resources such as collections, archives or scientific data; e-infrastructures, such as data and computing systems and communication networks; and any other infrastructure of a unique nature essential to achieve excellence in research and innovation. Such infrastructures may be single-sited, virtual or distributed.

The aim of this programme is to:

  • ensure the implementation, long-term sustainability and efficient operation of the research infrastructures identified by the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) and other world-class research infrastructures;
  • to support the development of new world class research infrastructures and
  • to open up key national and regional existing research infrastrcutures to European researchers from academia and industry and ensuring their optimal use and joint development (integrating activities).

Themes of the programme

The 2 year work programme 2016-2017 is implemented through four calls for proposals:

Call 1 - Development and long-term sustainability of new world-class research infrastructures (INFRADEV):

Through this call support is given to:

  • design studies to identify the next generation of new research infrastructures (conceptual and technical design)
  • the preparatory phase of ESFRI projects through a targeted approach
  • the individual support to ESFRI and other world-class RI
  • European Open Science cloud for Research

Call 2 - Integrating and opening research infrastructures of pan-European interest (INFRAIA):

This call focuses on opening up key national and regional research infrastructures to all European researchers from both academia and industry and ensuring their optimal use and joint development. Under this work programme, the integrating activities adress two classes of communities:

  • the starting communities, whose RIs show a limited degree of coordination and networking. The focus is on standardisation, networking and establishing procedures for a common access as a basis for trans-national and virtual access provision
  • advanced communities, typically communities having already benefited from integrating activities in the past. the focus here will be more on innovation and widening trans-national and virtual access provision.

The call for the advanced communities is a single-stage call and follows a top-down, targeted approach. The targeted topics are listed in the WP.

The call for starting communities is a 2 stage call following a bottom-up approach, covering all areas of science and technology. Proposals should however not restrict their services to too narrow research fields and address the wider scientific community.

Call 3 - e-Infrastructures (E-INFRA)

This call focuses on 2 main themes:

  • Integration and consolidation of e-infrastructure platforms supporting European policies and research and education communities
  • Prototyping innovative e-infrastructure platforms and services for research and education communities, industries and the citizens at large

Call 4 - Fostering the innovation potential of RIs (INFRAINNOV)

This call focuses on fostering the innovation potential of research infrastructures and introduces the new concept of technological infrastructures.

Call 5 - Support to policy and international cooperaation (INFRASUPP)

The goal of this call is to support international cooperation throught the exchange of best practices for national roadmap drafting and evaluation procedures, to conduct an international landscaping exercise, to support bilateraal cooperation with Africa,...
