Introduction

Main objectives

Promoting the development of a fabric of research infrastructures of highest quality and performance in Europe and their optimum use on a European scale.

Activity areas

  • 1. Transnational access to major research infrastructures for research teams and individual researchers
  • 2.1 Integrating activities combining cooperation networks with transnational access and research projects
  • 2.2 Integrating activities including networking activities only
  • 3. Communication network development in conjunction with thematic priority 2 (Information Society Technologies) to establish a high-capacity and high-speed communications network for all researchers in Europe (GÉANT) and specific high performance Grids and test-beds (GRIDs)
  • 4. Design studies: feasibility studies and technical preparatory work for new infrastructures with European dimension
  • 5. Development of new infrastructures: optimising of European infrastructures by providing limited support in duly justified cases, alongside with other funding agencies

Budget

The indicative budget allocated to the Structuring activity Research infrastructures for the duration of FP6 is €655 million
