ESFRI


European Strategy Forum on
Research Infrastructures


Set up by the EU Council of Research Ministers in 2002


Brings together representatives of Ministers of the 27 Member
States, 10 Associated States, and of the European Commission


Supports a coherent and strategy
-
led approach to policy making
on Research Infrastructures


Mandate to develop a
Roadmap


ESFRI


The Roadmap


The ESFRI roadmap identifies
new pan
-
European
Research Infrastructures or major up
-
grades to existing
ones
, corresponding to the needs of European research
communities in the next 10 to 20 years, in all fields of
Sciences and Technologies, regardless of possible
location


First Roadmap published in 2006


Followed by two updates in 2008 and 2010:


Now
contains 48 projects



Requiring
major financial investment (~20 b

) and long
term commitment for operation (~2 b

/year)

By 2015 (…) have completed or launched the

… opening of Member State operated research
infrastructures to the full European user community…”



The EU should step up its cooperation on the roll
-
out of
global research infrastructures. By 2012, agreement
should be reached with international partners on the
development of research infrastructures, including ICT
infrastructures, which owing to cost, complexity and/or
interoperability requirements can only be developed on
a global scale”

Implementation of ESFRI projects

“A
combination of resources from national budgets,

funds should lead to the development of excellent research
infrastructures throughout
Europe”

New mandate to ESFRI

for
implementation

of ESFRI
projects


Approved

during

the lunch discussions
at

will

be

included

in the Conclusions of the

ESFRI Implementation Working Group

Identify/
analyse

bottlenecks for implementation


and propose solutions

Support implementation regarding:



Governance



Legal issues



Access and Data policy

Stimulate communication between
sciencific

communities and funding agencies

Summarize lessons learned/provide
recommendations


15

ESFRI Implementation Working Group

Presentations/discussions with project coordinators

Workshop in Amsterdam


Common
issues: Governance, Funding, IPR, Statutes,
Open Access and Data
sets

Conclusions:


Projects
on ESFRI roadmap are at very different stages
of maturity


Governments are not
well
-
enough
connected to ESFRI
projects


Most projects start preparatory phase without (financial)
commitment


Transition from preparatory phase to implementation is
often problematic




16

ESFRI Implementation Working Group

Preliminary Recommendations:



Roadmap
projects should involve all stakeholders (MS,
AC, non
-
EU countries) from an early
stage.


MS
/ACs should
examine
how they can better fit ESFRI
projects into their national
roadmap


Projects
and Member States should explore the use of
structural funds to finance national nodes of distributed
pan
-
European
RIs.


ESFRI
should politically support the roadmap projects by
raising awareness among the member states.




Expert Group on Assessment

The EC has set up
an

Expert Group on Assessment of
the ESFRI
projects
.

This

group

will

assess

the
financial
and

managerial
maturity

of the
projects

of the ESFRI
roadmap
.

The members of the Expert Group are high level
managers expert in setting up
and

managing
RIs

The
Implementation

WG
will

work

together

with

the
this

Expert Group
and

the
Strategy

Working

to

assist
the
implementation

of he

Cohesion policy 2014
-
2020 & EU 2020

Commission adopted its proposals 6 October 2011
:


-

Cohesion policy (ERDF, CF & ESF) will focus on Europe 2020
objectives for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, along with rural
development policy (EAFRD) and maritime and fisheries policy (EMFF),

-

List of thematic objectives developed around the Europe 2020 headline
targets and flagship initiatives

-
Thematic
concentration for maximising impact: minimum shares for
research and innovation through
ERDF

-
Ex
-
ante conditionality, e.g. existence of a Research and Innovation
Strategy for Smart Specialisation (RIS3
).


Commission has adopted “
Elements for a Common Strategic Framework
2014 to 2020
” for cohesion. Linkages have been clarified with Horizon
2020.

Thematic Objectives to Deliver EU 2020

-

Strengthening research, technological development and innovation

-

Enhancing access to, and use and quality of, information and communication
technologies

-

Enhancing the competitiveness of small and medium
-
sized enterprises, the
agricultural sector (for the EAFRD) and the fisheries and aquaculture sector (for
the EMFF)

-

Supporting the shift towards a low
-
carbon economy in all sectors

-

Promoting climate change adaptation, risk prevention and management

-

Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency

-

Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network
infrastructures

-

Promoting employment and supporting labour mobility (mainly ESF)

-

Promoting social inclusion and combating poverty (mainly ESF)

-

Investing in education, skills and lifelong learning (mainly ESF)

-

Institutional capacity and efficient public administration (mainly ESF)
