European Research Infrastructures with global impact. Some examples from the ESFRI Roadmap, 2012 

In 2012 ,ESFRI celebrated its first ten years. This milestone was also an opportunity to make the public more broadly aware of ESFRI and of the scientific goals of the different ESFRI Research Infrastructures.

ESFRI - Inspiring Excellence - Research Infrastructures and the Europe 2020 Strategy 

The ESFRI vision seeks to extend capability of Research Infrastructures to all research fields, driving innovation. It envisions all EU Member States working coherently and jointly together on RIs, to overcome existing limits. This vision for 2020 is ESFRI's contribution to building the European Research and Innovation Area.
