Final Report - MERIL (Mapping of European Research Infrastructure Landscape)

Project ID: 262159
Funded under: FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES

Abstract

This is the final report of the MERIL project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This is a pan-European effort to produce and maintain a comprehensive inventory of research infrastructures (RIs) of major relevance in Europe across all scientific domains, accessible to the public through an interactive online portal.

In achieving its objectives, MERIL produced a commonly agreed definition and set of criteria for the inclusion of European RIs which were adopted by all stakeholders and supported the mapping. It identified around 900 RIs in Europe of 'more-than-national' relevance and gathered data on them. Finally, it secured the commitment of stakeholders to ensure the sustainable development of the database and portal, which will facilitate more extensive analysis of the European RI landscape than has previously been possible.
