Final Report - ICRI2012 (Copenhagen international research infrastructure conference 2012)

Project ID: 311865


This is the final report for the ICRI2012 project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The aim of the project was to support the organisation of the first international conference on Research infrastructure (RIs) which took place in Copenhagen on 21-23 March 2012 under the Danish Presidency of the European Council in collaboration with the European Commission. The main objectives was to increase international collaboration on RIs in order to manage the grand challenges in today's societies. RIs play a crucial role for the promotion of knowledge and technology and are of key importance to drive excellent science.

ICRI2012 planned to make specific recommendations on how international cooperation for research infrastructures could be effective in the future. This included calling for a coordinated support to (and strengthening of) existing initiatives, highlighting possible needs for additional effort, and developing a vision for an open science and a global ecosystem of RIs and the actions needed to achieve it. ICRI2012 would also provide important input to the European strategy and to the implementation of the next European Union Framework Programme 'Horizon 2020'.

The report covers a summary description of the project context and objectives and goes on with a description of the main scientific and technological results of the four work packages. The potential impact and the main dissemination activities and the exploitation of results are also stated.
