Projects funded under RTD Framework Programmes

Support for Research Infrastructures is open to infrastructures across the fields of science and technology. The overall objective of the RI part of the FP7 Capacities Programme is to optimise the use and development of the best existing RIs in Europe, as well as to help create new facilities which best meet the needs of researchers and support their achievements.

The activities being supported are identified under three main lines of actions:

  • Support for existing research infrastructures

  • Support for new research infrastructures (or major upgrades of existing ones)

  • Support for policy development and programme implementation, including support to emerging needs
