EU Research Infrastructures

and their

International Dimension


Esfri european strategy forum on research infrastructures

ESFRI - European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures

  • created in 2002 by the Member States and

    the European Commission

  • strategic instrument to develop the scientific

    integration of Europe and to strengthen its

    international outreach


Role of esfri

Role of ESFRI

Mission

  • To support a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy-making on new and existing pan-European and global RIs

  • To facilitate multilateral initiatives leading to the better use and development of Research Infrastructures, at EU and international level.

International RIs

Attractive to excellent researchers from all over the world if they

  • provide unique research opportunities

  • assure excellent service

    In the EU: approximately 300 RIs with inter-national relevance, most nationally owned

    Present expenditure: > 100 billion € capital +

    10 b€/yearoperationcosts.

EXAMPLES


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

European component of a world wide in situ global ocean observing system, based on autonomous profiling floats.

The deployment of the global array is under way, with significant contributions from the USA, Japan, China, India, Canada, Australia, and several European countries.

Estimated Cost:

Total construction costs: ~73 M€.

Operation costs: 6.3 M€/year

EURO-ARGO


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

Platform for biological data collection, storage, annotation, validation, dissemination and utilisation.

Facility will enhance all Life Sciences research and its translation to medicine

Estimated Cost:

Total construction costs: ~470 M€.

Operation costs: ~ 100 M€/year

ELIXIR


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

the goal is to improve our understanding of the non-thermal universe. CTA is the next generation ground-based gammy-ray instrument.

18 partners from various European countries as well as Argentina, Brazil and USA

Estimated Cost:

Total construction costs: ~ 150 M€.

Operation costs: ~ 10 M€/year

CTA – Cherenkov Telescope Array


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

The Square Kilometre Array Radio Telescope will address a range of fundamental astronomy questions and try to answer questions like:

When did the first stars and galaxies form?

How did the galaxies evolve?

Dark energy and dark matter

SKA bring together the astronomy community in Europe, North America and East Asia

Estimated Cost:

Total construction costs: ~ 1.500 M€.

Operation costs: 100 – 150 M€/year

SKA


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

The European Extremely Large Telescope is a new ground-based telescope with 42 m in diameter.

E-ELT will detect and characterise exoplanets, first objects in the universe and evolution history of galaxies, the nature and distribution of dark matter and dark energy

E-ELT will be implemented and operated by ESO; ; the selected site is in Chile; possible partner is Brazil

Estimated Cost:

Total construction costs: ~ 1.000 M€.

Operation costs: ~ 35 M€/year

E-ELT


Dr ing beatrix vierkorn rudolph esfri chair rome 1st octobre 2010

The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe is a multidisciplinary, cross-national panel database of micro data of health, socio-economic status and social and family networks of more than 30,000 individuals aged 50 or over.

SHARE is harmonised with the US Health and Retirement Study

Estimated Cost:

Operation costs: ~ 300 000 € /year

400 000 € per country and wave

SHARE


Prospective

PROSPECTIVE

  • Strategic impact of RIs is now recognised worldwide, thanks also to ESFRI’s activities

  • G8+5 Science Ministers discuss RIs:

    • Roadmaps and priority setting

    • Identification of new areas of cooperation

    • Promotion of joint use of existing RIs

    • Ensuring “Open competitive access”

    • Cost Control & Management issues


What do we propose

What do we propose?

USA, Canada and Brazil have a high scientific and technological capability and need RIs to cope with the Grand Challenges

EU is in the same situation

We should join our efforts and increase our cooperation for the benefit of our scientists

The ESFRI Roadmap: a step in this direction

To reach this, a preview of already existing or planned RIs on both sides could be the starting point
