Abstract

Each of the 22 infrastructures which PSE proposes for ESFRI's consideration and for inclusion in the Roadmap, has been assessed to have a strong science and technical case and a Pan-European character in its potential scientific impact and in the institutional and financial requirements.
Some of these RI's are already strongly supported by clear State and/or institutional commitments, ensuring that financial support may be already sufficient, or able to attract further resources for the RI to be built within the next two decades.
Several other proposals, mainly in Research fields where operating European or International Agencies or Institutions do not exist yet, but having strong support by organized scientific communities, need to enter a negotiation phase to achieve clearer and specific financial commitments at institutional and/or State level to achieve realisation phase and long term sustainability. This need is indicated in the summary Table I in Appendix i), where the maturity of the most significant technical and institutional aspects as well as budgetary and technical time for realization are summarily listed as an extract from the standard "templates" and detailed evaluations from the EWG's, reported in Chapter 4.
A summary description of the landscapes where these infrastructures stand is given in chapter 3, while more detailed landscapes and descriptions are contained in the reports of each EWG in chapter 4.
