What research infrastructures are located on the map?

This map shows the location of the pan-European research infrastructures that are listed in the ESFRI roadmap 2010. The RIs are located in the city of their headquarters. RIs which headquarters are not decided yet are located, by default, in the capital city of their coordinating country.

In case of distributed infrastructure, the location of the partner facilities is also displayed on the map. About four hundred facilities are part of these distributed pan-European research infrastructures that have been (or are being) set up with the support of the European Commission.

The map also displays the European infrastructures that are established as ERIC - European Research Infrastructure Consortium. About ten have been adopted by the Commission by the end of 2014. Eight of them are part of the ESFRI roadmap.

The ESFRI Roadmap

ESFRI – the European Strategy Forum on research Infrastructure has identified projects for new research infrastructures (or major upgrade) in a European Roadmap first published in 2006 and updated in 2008 and 2010.

The Roadmap highlights the key new research infrastructures needed for European research and innovation over the next decades. It addresses all scientific fields that require large-scale research infrastructures and/or distributed ones, including e-research infrastructures, with a joint effort on European or international scale. The ESFRI roadmap will be updated in 2016.

The support of the European Commission

The Commission managed EU budget contributions of up to €6 million per project to support the preparatory phase of these RIs. The EU also supported clusters of projects in the same field to respond to common implementation needs, notably regarding data management and access issues. The EU granted the ESFRI projects about €300 million under FP7. Further support is planned under the research programme Horizon 2020.

The EU also supports the construction of new infrastructures (or major upgrade) through the European Structural and Investment Funds under the cohesion policy.
