Following the series of the European Conferences on Research Infrastructures (ECRI) from years 2000-2010 under the corresponding rotating presidency of the European Union and the International Conference on Research Infrastructures during the Danish Presidency of the European Union in 2012 (ICRI 2012), the Greek Presidency of the Union in cooperation with the European Commission [Directorate-General for Research & Innovation (DG RTD) and Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology (DG CNECT)] will organise the next major International Conference on Research infrastructures in 2014 (ICRI 2014). The conference will take place 2-4 April 2014 in Athens, Greece.
ICRI is a conference on Research Infrastructures; the latter play an increasingly important role in the advancement of knowledge and technology. They are a key instrument in bringing together a wide diversity of stakeholders to look for solutions to many of the challenges society is facing today. RIs offer unique research services to users from different countries, attract young people to science, and help to shape scientific communities.
The objectives of the conference are to highlight the essential role of global research infrastructures in addressing grand challenges at all scales: national, regional, European and global scale; to reflect on needs, development and operation of global research infrastructures at national, regional, European and international level; and to present the main characteristics of global research infrastructures and identify the challenges and drivers for collaboration at international level.
This proposal lays out a comprehensive plan for the organisation, management and dissemination of the ICRI2014 conference.
