ESFRI Workshop on RI Funding Questionnaire
The Competitiveness Council, in their recently adopted conclusions on Research Infrastructures (RIs) (2/12/22), acknowledged that the funding of RIs requires strategic investments through the entire RI life-cycle. Furthermore, the Council invited Member States and the European Commission through ESFRI to perform an analysis of the types of financial support to the European RIs throughout their life-cycle, identify good practices and synergies of various RI funding resources, and explore appropriate funding models and corresponding initiatives.
To this aim, ESFRI established an RI Funding Drafting Group in charge of analysing the topic in detail and preparing recommendations. In order to start the analysis, the RI Funding Drafting Group created a questionnaire, to collect input from Research Infrastructures and national governments and develop a report, mapping funding practices at national and EU levels and providing broad future insights in the scientific and funding needs of RIs.
The RI Funding Drafting Group organizes an online Workshop on 16 February 2023, to assist the representatives in filling in the questionnaire, provide more information on the process and to clarify any questions that may arise.
Participation in the Workshop is available by-invitation-only.
