Survey of European Research Infrastructures

The European Commission (EC), the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the EuroHORCs are undertaking a second Survey of European Research Infrastructures, updating the one realized by the EC in early 2005 .

This Survey addresses Research Infrastructures in operation (or currently in the process of being updated), forecasted to be operational in 2006, recognised as essential for researchers' work. By focusing on existing Research Infrastructures, this survey is complementary to ESFRI's work in developing a roadmap for future Research Infrastructure needs.

The overall objectives of this Survey of European Research Infrastructures are:

  • To identify the current scenario of major Research Infrastructures in Europe and respective trends and developments;
  • To contribute to the analysis of the European map of current Research Infrastructures, the relations between the Research Infrastructures, the science community and the public/private organisations, their possible evolution;
  • To help estimate the weight of the Research Infrastructures, measured in financial terms and population involved in the various disciplines, their uniqueness and openness of access in the European Research Area, as well as an assessment of the maintenance and replacement effort;
  • To identify and raise awareness of European Research Infrastructures' needs and importance.

The Survey has been launched on 1 March 2006, with a deadline of April 18 (deadline extended) 2006. A final report is expected to be ready by autumn 2007.
