ESFRI Scripta Series
The third volume of the ESFRI Scripta series is built on the outcomes of the ad hoc Working Group on Innovation as approved by the Forum in March 2016. This ESFRI Scripta volume 'Innovation-oriented cooperation of Research Infrastructures' describes the different forms of industry and Research Infrastructure collaboration that generate innovation: industry as supplier for the construction / upgrade of the RIs, being instructed and guided in developing new technologies or production protocols; industry as partner of RIs and industry as user exploiting the specific dedicated access modes as well as through the academic access supported by research grants.
The second volume of the ESFRI Scripta series is dedicated to the outcomes of the ad hoc Working (WG) Group on Long-Term Sustainability (LTS) of Research Infrastructures.ESFRI has previously developed its concept of lifecycle of the Research Infrastructures in the framework of the Roadmap evaluation exercise, and at all stages of the lifecycle different aspects of sustainability were identified. The LTS WG has analysed the Long-Term Sustainability of Research Infrastructures from a broad perspective taking the ESFRI viewpoint well beyond the mere economical analysis.
The "Neutron scattering facilities in Europe - Present status and future perspectives" report (ESFRI Scripta Vol. 1) has been published.
