Capacity Research Infrastructures Unit Maria
Research Infrastructures (incl.
e-infrastructures) are
  • Facilities, resources, and related services
    usedby the scientific community for
  • Conducting leading-edge research
  • Knowledge transmission, knowledge exchangesand
    knowledge preservation
  • Today Research Infrastructures include
  • Major scientific equipment
  • Scientific collections, archives, structured
  • ICT-based infrastructures
  • Research services generally subject to periodic
    evaluation by international scientific committee

ERA building blocks

19/09/2016 3. The five ERA initiatives
World-class research infrastructures Key
element of the Lund declaration adopted on 8 July
  • Essential for Europes researchers to stay at the
    forefront of research development
  • Key component of Europes competitiveness in
    frontier research
  • Key Challenges
  • Overcoming fragmentation in Europe
  • Coping with increasing costs / complexity
  • Improving efficiency of (and access to) research
    services, incl. e-infrastructures

FP7 supports existing Research Infrastructures
  • Integrating Activities to promote the coherent
    use and development of research infrastructures
    in a given field, implemented through
  • Targeted approach with topics defined in
    cooperation with the FP7 thematic areas
  • ICT based e-infrastructures in support of
    scientific research

580 M 2007-2013
420 M 2007-2013
Integrating Activity in FP7
  • Continuation of the successful FP6 instrument
  • 3 to 10 M, up to 15 M in exceptional cases, up
    to 4 years
  • Collaboration of existing research
    infrastructures in a given field of science
  • Normally all major RIs in Europe in one field
  • At least 3 MS or AS
  • Three types of activities are mandatory in one
  • Networking Activities
  • Trans-national Access and/or Service Activities
  • Joint Research Activities

Examples of FP7 Integrating Activities for SSH
  • Longitudinal Enhancement and Access Improvement
    of the SHARE Infrastructure (SHARE_LEAP)
  • To maintain and enhance the longitudinal
    stability of the SHARE panel and provide and
    improve access and consulting services to users
    in the years 2009 and 2010. EU Support 3 M
  • Cultural Heritage Advanced Research
    Infrastructures Synergy for a Multidisciplinary
    Approach to Conservation/Restoration (CHARISMA)
  • To bring together 21 leading European
    infrastructures and improve research on the
    restoration of artwork materials and support
    access of researchers to the services of three
    different and complementary groups of facilities,
    involving material sciences and artwork and
  • EU support 7.6 M

FP7 calls Overall strategy
  • Three calls for proposals for 2010-2013
  • A targeted approach
  • For each of the three calls, a list of defined
  • Each topic corresponding to one project, for one
    class of Research Infrastructures e.g. "Research
    Vessels", "Virus archives", "Historical
  • To focus on strategic priorities
  • More topics will be published than can be funded
    to ensure competition

Work Programme 2010 Current Call for proposals
for Integrating ActivitiesTopics for Social
Sciences and Humanities
  • European Social Survey
  • Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe
  • European Social Science Data Archives and Remote
    Access to Official Statistics
  • Archives for Historical Research (Contemporary
    European History)
  • Towards a European Research Infrastructure for
    Modelling and Methodologies
  • Research Infrastructure for the study of
    globalisation and European integration

FP7 also supports the development of new
Research Infrastructures
  • Design studies to support the conceptual design
    for new facilities or major upgrades, of clear
    European dimension and interest
  • through bottom-up calls
  • Support to the Construction of new
    infrastructures and major upgrades to existing
    ones, based on the ESFRI Roadmap
  • Preparatory phase
  • Construction phase

The ESFRI Roadmap
  • Mandate from the Council of Ministers,November
  • The Roadmap (2006) and its update (2008) is the
    result of several years of intensive work
  • The roadmap contains 44 projects
  • About 1000 high-level experts were involved, from
    every MS and AS, from most fields and user
    communities, giving the end product credibility
    and quality.

ESFRI roadmap 2008
  • Social Science Humanities 5 Projects
  • Environmental Sciences 10 Projects
  • Biomedical and Life Sciences 10 Projects
  • Energy 4 Projects
  • Physical Sciences Engineering 8 Projects
  • Materials and Analytical Facilities 6 Projects
  • e-Infrastructures Wide input 1 Project
  • Total 44 projects ( 20 B in 10 years)
    equal to 2 B per year, increase of
    20 on present investment

Support of FP7 to the Preparatory phase of the
Construction of New (or major Upgrade) of the
ESFRI Roadmap projects
  • To facilitate decision-making between partners
    from different countries
  • Work targeted at resolving bottlenecks and
    addressing most of the critical issues (legal,
    financial) that need to be resolved to allow the
    project moving forward
  • Technical work also possible but cannot be the
    core of the preparatory phase

The Preparatory phase is a pathfinder for
FP7-Preparatory Phase projects in Social
  • CESSDA-Preparatory Phase
  • Preparatory Phase project for a major upgrade of
    the Council of European Social Sciences Data

A New Community legal framework for a European
Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC)
  • In July 2008, the Commission presented its
    Proposal for a Community legal framework for the
    construction and operation of new European
    Research Infrastructures (ERIC)
  • In June 2009, the Council adopted the ERIC
    Regulation, which is based on Article 171 EC
  • Entities willing to set up an ERIC can submit an
    application to the Commission, which should
    assess, with the help of independent experts,
    whether the proposed infrastructure is in
    conformity with this Regulation

ERIC Regulation Objectives
  • To provide an easy-to-use legal instrument
    adapted to European infrastructures, an ERIC
  • have a legal personality recognized in all MS
  • have a spirit of a truly European venture
  • be flexible enough to adapt to the requirements
    of specific infrastructures
  • provide some of those privileges and exemptions
    allowed at a national level for intergovernmental
    organizations (e.g. VAT exemption).

Framework regulation Nature of an ERIC
  • Primary task establish and operate a European
    Research Infrastructure
  • Tasks to be pursued on a non economic basis
  • Four conditions fulfilled by the Research
  • necessary for European research activities,
    including Community programmes
  • open to the European research community
  • added value in the development of ERA and
    significant improvement in relevant ST fields at
    international level
  • contribute to the dissemination and optimization
    of the results of the activities

Next Steps
  • Helping to overcome fragmentation in the European
    Research Area (ERA)
  • - Maximising synergies between all policy
    instruments, national and European
  • Coping with increasing costs / complexity
  • Making more efficient use of scarce resources
  • Improving the organisation of and access to high
    quality data services for European comparative
  • Implementation of the 5 SSH projects of the ESFRI
    Roadmap with total estimated construction costs
    of around 256 M. The challenges are high
  • Implementation of the Legal Instrument (ERIC) for
    European Research Infrastructures
