Three types of activity will be supported to enable excellent science in Europe.
Research infrastructures are very often incubators of innovative technologies. The EU support will encourage them to stimulate innovation both in the infrastructures themselves and in their supplier and user industries.
The aims are to exploit synergies between national and Union initiatives by setting up partnerships between relevant policy makers and funding bodies or advisory groups such as ESFRI, e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG), EIROforum organisations. This action will also facilitate the development of global research infrastructures and the cooperation of European infrastructures with their non-European counterparts, ensuring their global interoperability and access.
The total budget for this activity in Horizon 2020 is 2.488 million euros.
