After the fully digital High-Level Launch of the ESFRI Stakeholders Forum that took place on 24 March 2022 to mark its formal establishment, it is now finally time to meet in person and set the Stakeholders Forum deliberation and co-design processes in full motion.The 1st ESFRI Stakeholders Forum Meetup will take place on 15 September 2022 at the Royal Belgian Institute (Museum) of Natural Sciences, in Brussels, as a full day event with physical presence.

ESFRI Stakeholders Forum Meetup is an annual event bringing together research infrastructures (RIs), decision and policymakers, municipality, socio-economic actors, research organisations and higher education institutions which may contribute to or run the RIs, or are potential users of RIs. It aims to attract stakeholders of RIs, raise awareness across the whole research and innovation ecosystem, and facilitate cooperation and mutual learning between RIs and their stakeholders. Expected results include proposals for new and improved services by RIs, with their enhanced use across various communities, contributing to the impact and long-term sustainability of RIs.

At the first Meetup, on 15 September in Brussels, the panels will discuss the good practices and bottlenecks hindering the enhanced use of the RI’s services or delivery. Furthermore, the needs and future opportunities will be flagged. The event will try to address the following general questions:

- How is the current cooperation with the RIs perceived by the various communities?

- How can the use of existing RIs be improved? Can good practices and bottlenecks be identified?

- What are the needs and opportunities for fostering cooperation with existing and new RIs?


Please note that participation is available by invitation only.

High-Level Launch of the ESFRI Stakeholders Forum

The ESFRI White Paper, adopted in 2020, prepared the ground for a broader engagement with stakeholders by envisaging the establishment of a platform for regular discussion among the different European research infrastructures’ stakeholders.  The ESFRI Stakeholders Forum (SF) will attract stakeholders and raise their awareness across the whole research and innovation ecosystem. The objective is to look beyond the traditional RI communities.

The High-Level Launch of the ESFRI Stakeholder Forum will take place on 24 March, 2022, as a fully digital, by-invitation only event to mark the formal establishment of the ESFRI Stakeholder Forum.

The High-level Launch of the ESFRI Stakeholders Forum was recorded in full. The video recording is available for viewing here.
