Webinar: Frameworks and financing models for Research Infrastructures in Europe


Feb. 20, 2018 at 14:00 – Feb. 20, 2018 at 16:00

Ever scratched your head at the models of EU research infrastructures?

Wished you could get more political and national commitment to your project?

Want to make the research infrastructure better support your future research?

Or want to improve the HBP’s chances to succeed as a European research infrastructure after 2023?

Then this is the Webinar for you!

The European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) and the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) provide legal and financial frameworks for the establishment and operation of research infrastructures in Europe.

In order to inform about the organisation of ERIC and ESFRI and to discuss the perspectives and alternatives to these frameworks in relation to the Human Brain Project, we invite all interested parties to a webinar on existing frameworks and financing models for European research infrastructures. 

We request all participants to take a look at the ESFRI Roadmap 2016 as well as the Public Roadmap 2018 prior to the meeting.

Registration for the webinar is required and can be completed here.
