Towards European research infrastructures?

Hervé Pero, DG RTD-B

ERA: Research Programmes and Capacity

Research Infrastructures Unit

slide2

Research Infrastructures (incl. e-infrastructures) are:

  • Facilities, resources, and related services usedby the scientific community for
    • Conducting leading-edge research
    • Knowledge transmission, exchange and preservation
  • Today Research Infrastructures include
    • Major scientific equipment
    • Scientific collections, archives, structured information
    • ICT-based infrastructures
  • Excellence of research services generally subject to periodic evaluation by international scientific committee
slide3

RIs not only at the root but also the future of Europe,

  • The current situation is forcing Europe to quickly advance on research investments, which is twice virtuous (support to research + industry),
  • A new way of managing research is emerging; this is a major challenge, not scientific but mainly political...
slide4

Europe suffers from fragmentation,

  • therefore networking and integration is the way for Europe,
  • More than half of the ESFRI facilities are of distributed nature, which gives opportunities for regions, small & less research intensive countries to participate in joint projects,
  • Networking spirit is a European strength, but cross country is a challenge to be faced...

RI policy at EU level has no other choice than continuing reinforcing coordination
  • At EU level,
  • At national and regional,
  • At “variable geometry”,
  • At global level…

This explains the importantrole of ESFRI and others…

esfri
ESFRI

Launched in April 02 by Council of Research Ministers

Representatives of the 27 Member and Associated States + one representative of the European Commission (EC)

Links with e-IRG

The European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) has been set-up to help developing a true European policy

Scientific competition is today at world level
  • Is Europe able to face the challenge?
  • Are member States willing to think European?
  • Concern! No ESFRI projectimplemented since Dec. 2006
slide10

Importance of a shared vision of ERA - with global dimension

  • Five initiatives in 2008
    • Researchers
    • Joint Programming
    • Research infrastructures
    • International S&T Cooperation
    • Knowledge transfer and IP management
slide11

Towards an ‘eco-system’ of Research Infrastructures within ERA

    • Large single-sited facilities
    • Distributed European Facilities
    • Regional Partner Facilities
    • Network of national facilities
    • Linked with universities & schools
    • Network of industrial suppliers / users
slide12

Objectives of the CommunityResearch Infrastructures actions

  • Optimising the use and balanced development of the best existing research infrastructures in Europe
  • Helping to create in all fields of S & T new research infrastructures of pan-European interest
    • e.g. EMSO, ARGO, PRACE
  • Supporting policy development
    • e.g. ESFRI, e-IRG, impact studies
    • international cooperation
slide13

Integrating Activity in FP7

  • Continuation of the FP6 instrument “I3”
  • Collaboration of existing research infrastructures
    • Normally all major RI’s in Europe in one field
  • Three types of obligatory activities
    • Networking Activities
    • Trans-national Access and/or Service Activities
    • Joint Research Activities

EC funds ~250 M€/y 2,5% of EU needsAbout 300 RIs supported under FP

slide14

FP 7 future calls

  • Three calls for proposals for 2010-2013
      • For WP2010 max. EC contribution 10M€,
      • 4 years duration
  • A targeted approach
      • For each of the three calls, a list of defined topics
      • Each topic corresponding to one project,
      • Focus on strategic priorities
      • More topics will be published than can be funded to ensure competition
slide15

Identification of topics

  • 78 topics in 6 fields
      • Environmental sciences and non nuclear energy
      • Life sciences
      • Mathematics, computer-related sciences, data
      • Social sciences and humanities
      • Physics, astronomy, nuclear-and particle physics
      • Analytical facilities and engineering
  • Corresponding to potential follow-up and opening the Research Infrastructure action for new communities
  • Environment related topics foreseen in each call

will is enes help paving the way towards a pan european research infrastructure

Pan-European interest means provision of unique laboratoriesor services, …

… European scientific character should be based on the quality of research services they offer and the contributions they make to leading research efforts

… also in terms of wider impacts (including "soft factors“)

Will IS-ENES help paving the way towards a pan-European research infrastructure?
