[google transl.] New areas for the European list of strategic research infrastructures
Energy, environment, health and food, social and cultural innovation, religious studies and transition to open science
Biotechnology, food and nutrition, materials testing, the holocaust and the natural environment are among the topics covered by the 6 new pan-European research infrastructure projects that will be part of the 2018 roadmap of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) which was presented in Vienna during a conference hosted by the Austrian Presidency of the European Union.
The European Commission explains that "ESFRI identifies the need for investment in research facilities of pan-European importance needed to strengthen scientific excellence and competitiveness in the European Research Area. They are of such magnitude and scope that countries need to pool their resources in order to build them". The European Commission has supported the development of these infrastructures through successive EU funding programmes for research and innovation and in 2018-2019, under Horizon 2020, the current funding programme will make €214 million available through tenders. Once implemented, the infrastructures in the ESFRI roadmap will provide all scientists across Europe with open access resources and services.
