FP7 – June 2005 7 The Research Infrastructures in FP7 July 2005
FP7 – June 2005 8 Objectives Optimising the use and development of the best research infrastructures in Europe; Helping to create in all fields of Science and Technology new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the scientific community to help EU society (including industry) to strengthen its base of knowledge and its technological know how.
FP7 – June 2005 9 Definition of Research Infrastructures "Facilities", "resources" or "services" that are needed by the scientific community for the development of leading-edge research in the most efficient manner at EU level, as well as for knowledge transmission, knowledge exchanges and knowledge preservation; covers major equipments, collections, archives and structured information, enabling ICT-based infrastructures, and any other entity of a unique nature used for research.
FP7 – June 2005 10 Research Infrastructures are at the core of the knowledge Triangle ResearchEducation innovation Research infrastructures
FP7 – June 2005 11 Activities forecasted under FP7 Support for: Existing research infrastructures: aiming at optimising the utilisation, sharing / integrating resources and improving their performance; New research infrastructures (incl. major upgrades) of pan- European interest based on the work of ESFRI; Emerging needs: support to the development of a European policy on RI and of its international dimension.
FP7 – June 2005 12 a) Support to existing research infrastructures transnational access integrating activities e-infrastructures Implementation through: Bottom-up calls for proposals open to all fields of science Targeted calls implemented whenever appropriate in cooperation with thematic areas
FP7 – June 2005 13 b) Support to new research infrastructures Construction of new infrastructures and major updates to existing ones, based on the work conducted by ESFRI on the development of a European roadmap list of priority projects; targeted calls and 2 stage approach Design studies: through a bottom-up approach, promoting foresight and exploratory analysis.
FP7 – June 2005 14 ESFRI Ambitions l To provide an overview of the needs for RI of pan-European interest in different fields of science and technology l To prepare a European Roadmap with the objective of regular updates as different areas mature. The making of the Roadmap will be an ongoing process. l To act as an incubator for international negotiations about concrete RI projects with pan-European interest
FP7 – June 2005 15 ) Support to emerging needs c) Support to emerging needs Support measures, through a mixed bottom-up / top-down approach in support to the development of a European policy for RI to the development of international cooperation Photo NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens spacecraft
FP7 – June 2005 16 Research Infrastructures Optimisation of Resources Support of ideas (design studies) FutureExisting Support of excellence Strategic Bottom-up Reinforcement of Capacities (engineering support of pan-European RIs) ESFRI Roadmap In brief…
FP7 – June 2005 17 Clear Criteria for new Research Infrastructures Capacity to offer a top-level service to scientific users and guarantee of scientific excellence through continuous performance upgrades; Impacts at EU and international level, not only on scientific developments but also on long term socio-economic issues; support to ERA; Maturity i.e. technological feasibility; life-cycle costs evaluated (the ‘business’ case); EU partnership; commitment of major stakeholders; Added value of EU financial support (catalysis and leveraging effect).
