3 Research Infrastructures and the European Research Area Lisbon 2000 "the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion, and respect for the environment by 2010“Europe has a long tradition of excellence in research and innovation;European teams continue to lead progress in many fields of science and technology;However our centres of excellence often fail to reach critical mass in the absence of adequate networking and cooperation;Need to bring resources together and build a research and innovation equivalent of the "common market".
4 European Research Area ERAscientific research programmes integrating the EUs scientific resources.concentrated on multi-national co-operationmedical, environmental, industrial and socio-economic researchEuropean Research council, research Infrastructures ...The European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI)Launched in April 2002Commissioned to produce a forward look RoadmapBrings together 27 MS, 5 AS, 1 EC member

10 International treaty signed Construction startedInternational treaty signedSite selectedXFEL - Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia, the Slovak Republic, Sweden and Switzerland signed the “Convention concerning the Construction and Operation of a European X-ray Free-Electron Laser Facility” – as the official title of the English version of the convention reads. For internal reasons, France and Spain will sign the Convention a bit later. China and the United Kingdom plan to join within the next six months.EMFL – European Magnetic Field Laboratory.ESRF Upgrade - In 2008, the Council of the ESRF launched theESRF Upgrade Programme , an ambitious ten-year project serving a community of more than 10,000 scientists.Funding for a first phase of the Upgrade (from 2009 to 2015) has been secured to deliver:Eight new beamlines with capabilities unique in the worldRefurbishment of many existing beamlines to maintain them at world-class levelContinued world leadership for X-ray beam availability, stability and brillianceMajor new developments in synchrotron radiation instrumentationFunded

24 Virtual Research Communities INFRA : Virtual Research CommunitiesThe main objective is to enable an ever increasing number of users from all science and engineering disciplines and beyond to access and effectively use e-Infrastructures in order to increase their participation in research of global relevance and/or to allow them to access and share facilities, instruments, software and data from wherever they are based [...] The deployment and further evolution of e-Infrastructures addressing the research infrastructures (and related scientific communities) of the ESFRI-roadmap is particularly encouraged.Deployment of e-Infrastructures in scientific communities...Deployment of new types of e-infrastructure services and tools ...Training in the use of advanced information and communication tools and virtual research environments in order to enable researchers to use e-Infrastructures.Addressing human, social and economic factors influencing the creation of sustainable virtual research communities as well as the take up/maintenance of e-Infrastructure services by communities.
