Horizon 2020 RI Support Project Meeting
On 8 June 2017, the European Commission (EC) DG for Research and Innovation invited all running Horizon 2020 Research Infrastructure (RI) support projects to Brussels in order to present the status of their projects and identify synergies and collaboration opportunities between them. InRoad, as one of the newest Horizon 2020 RI support projects, was able to connect with its peer projects MERIL-2, RItrain, RISCAPE and StR-ESFRI and present the first achievements of its own. The two project coordinators of the Swiss National Science Foundation, Martin Müller and Max de Boer, presented InRoad’s organisational structure, the project’s framework, the deliverables and contemporary achievements.
The two coordinators particularly highlighted the potential results of the InRoad consultation, where a total of 30 out of 46 Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) responded so far. At the end of each presentation, the project coordinators discussed the synergy and collaboration possibilities. The EC took note of the developments of the project and highlighted the links between the project and ongoing work on RI long-term sustainability. InRoad’s outputs could feed into the process and nourish coming discussions at European level, under the Bulgarian and Austrian Presidencies of the European Union.
