Final Report | Working Group on Innovation 

The final report of the Working Group on Innovation  focuses on the main objectives which were defined by the Forum, namely to contribute to the development of a strategy aimed to strengthen and improve the relations between Research Infrastructures and Industry and to promote the potential for innovation of Research Infrastructures in all its aspects. 

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.
