European Research Infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures) – Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 preparation

The preparation of the Research Infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures) part of the Work Programme 2018-2020 started at the beginning of 2016 and is currently ongoing. A variety of available reports and upcoming contributions are and will be used to inform this process.

In this context, a consultation on European e-infrastructure has been launched on the Digital4Science and will remain open till 30 April 2016. It will help identify the challenges to which the future Work Programme should respond, in particular in view of the forthcoming European Cloud Initiative.

Other inputs will be gathered, in particular from the Research Infrastructures Advisory Group and from consultation with major stakeholders (e.g. ESFRI, e-IRG, EIROFORUM, ERICs, representatives from member states and associated countries).

The result of two other recently closed on-line consultations on the charter of access to research infrastructures and on long term sustainability of research infrastructures will also be used.

Work Programme 2018-2020 is now published.
