ESFRI Forum publishes a report summarising the overall conclusions and recommendations of the 2016 ESFRI Projects monitoring exercise concluded in June 2020, in the framework of preparing the ESFRI Roadmap 2021. During the monitoring process, the ESFRI Working Groups (WGs), composed by the relevant Strategy Working Groups (SWGs) and the Implementation Group, performed the monitoring of the 2016 ESFRI Projects:

  • ACTRIS – Aerosols, Clouds and Trace gases Research Infrastructure (Main SWG: Environment)
  • DANUBIUS-RI – International Centre for Advanced Studies on River-Sea Systems (Main SWG: Environment)
  • EMPHASIS – European Infrastructure for Multi-scale Plant Phenomics and Simulation (Main SWG: Health & Food)
  • E-RIHS – European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (Main SWG: Social and Cultural Innovation)
  • EST – European Solar Telescope (Main SWG: Physical Sciences & Engineering)
  • KM3Net – KM3 Neutrino Telescope 2.0 (Main SWG: Physical Sciences & Engineering)

The monitoring exercise aimed at analysing the state of implementation of these six ESFRI Projects in reference to the minimal key requirements for the Implementation Phase, as specified in the 2021 ESFRI Roadmap Guide. The conclusions of the detailed analysis performed by the ESFRI Executive Board are reflected in this document.th
