ESFRI at ICRI2016
From 3rd to 5th October 2016, the International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI 2016) will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, hosted by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) in collaboration with the European Commission.
During ICRI2016, the international community of research infrastructures will have the opportunity to visit ESFRI’s exhibition booth (booth1), explore its strategic role in the world of Research Infrastructures in Europe, discuss and exchange information on future Roadmaps. A special session on Roadmap 2018 Update is also included in ICRI2016 agenda (4th October, 15.00- 16.00).
The International Conferences on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) are a global forum in the Research Infrastructures domain that provide unique opportunities to share insights in this field from around the world. Building on the conclusions of previous ICRIs and the ongoing debates on Research Infrastructures in international fora such as the Group of Senior Officials (GSO) and the OECD-Global Science Forum (GSF), ICRI2016 will focus on a more structured approach to collaboration on global Research Infrastructures, underlining the strategic importance of Research Infrastructures and exploring their role as a tool for Science Diplomacy.
