Sustainable Research Infrastructures and socio-economic impact: opportunities and challenges for the regions
13 October 2016, Brussels, at 11:15
Workshop organised in the framework of European Week of Regions and Cities 2016 in collaboration with DG REGIO
This workshop aims at bringing together managing authorities and RIs managers to: i. stimulate discussion on the impact of RIs on the regions and exchange experiences on policy and planning cycles at national and regional level; ii. showcase examples of socio-economic impact generated by RIs; iii. discuss the pre-conditions and main factors attracting productive investments in the regions and their relevance for RIs
Participation is free of charge but registration is compulsory. REGISTERATION is open until 26th September - (workshop code 13A126)
DG RTD and DG CNECT organised an Infoday on the support to the European Open Science Cloud through upcoming calls under the European Research Infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures) part of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017: Call Topic INFRADEV-04-2016 and Call Topic EINFRA-12-2017

Seminar organized by ELIXIR, a distributed infrastructure for life-science information
To support the preparation of proposals for the European Research Infrastructure Work Programme 2016-2017, RICH, the network of National Contact Points for Research Infrastructures, in cooperation with the European Commission, organised an Information Day on Wednesday 28 October 2015, in Brussels.
The Conference was organised under the Italian EU Presidency. It followed on discussions held at European and national levels, and in particular on the challenges posed in building an effective European system of Infrastructures, selecting the best and most required ones, operating them in the best excellence-based evaluation system and ensuring their longer term sustainability.
The Conference was followed in the afternoon of September 25th by the ESFRI Launch Event of the Roadmap update 2016.
Second International Conference on Research Infrastructures
2-4 April 2014, Athens
During the two-day event, issues such as decision making processes, funding, management, use-dissemination-exploitation (including data, access) of research infrastructures were discussed in depth. More than 600 experts, scientists and stakeholders attended the event and spoke about how global research infrastructures can tackle the so-called Grand Challenges, more specifically in the fields of health, environment and energy.
The Conference made specific recommendations on how international cooperation on research infrastructures can be more effective in the future.

AAAS Annual Meeting 2011
Washington, 21 February 2011
Symposium: Research Infrastructures: the emergence of key players for environmental research
Climate change, biodiversity, carbon emissions, or natural hazards: by nature, environmental research must address challenges ignoring geographical borders, at the frontier of classical scientific disciplines and at the forefront of the international political agenda. Besides the global nature of these challenges, the scale and complexity of the resources needed and the development of information and communication technology have made necessary and enabled increased international collaboration in research and knowledge sharing. Developing world-class research infrastructures for environmental research is therefore one of the priorities of European authorities.
The symposium enabled a debate on future transatlantic cooperation in environmental research and more specifically in the field of geosciences observation systems.
