Interim Evaluation of Research Infrastructures in Horizon 2020

An Expert Group on ‘Research Infrastructures’ was designed to proceed to Interim Evaluation of the European Specific Programme Research Infrastructure including e-Infrastructures (RI), in Horizon 2020, across EU and associated states. The report showed that the H2020 RI programme has been set out to use the accumulated talent and resources of science capability across the EU to develop new advanced research infrastructures, widen the access to existing ones, network and interoperate national ones of wider interest and work together with third countries on global infrastructures and to address global problems.

Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2014-2015 - 4. European Research Infrastructures

Research infrastructures are facilities, resources and services that are used by the research communities to conduct research and foster innovation in their fields. Where relevant, they may be used beyond research, e.g. for education or public services. 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

Towards European integrated ocean observation

Marine research infrastructures for ocean observation feature highly in the European strategy for marine and maritime research (COM (2008) 534) because they underpin all ocean activities, whether they are scientific or socioeconomic. This report summarizes the work of the expert group on marine research infrastructures, which met in the framework of the strategy, between 2010 and 2012
