ESFRI to organize Roadmap 2016 launch event

22 Jan 2016 Amsterdam - On March 10th, the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) will present the 2016 ESFRI Roadmap on Large Scale Research Infrastructures during a one-day conference in Amsterdam. The venue will be the Trippenhuis Building, the headquarters of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The ESFRI Roadmap identifies new Research Infrastructures (RI) of pan-European interest corresponding to the long term needs of the European research communities, covering all scientific areas, regardless of possible location.

The 2016 Roadmap consists of 21 ESFRI Projects with a high degree of maturity - including six new ones - and 29 ESFRI Landmarks, RIs that reached the implementation phase by the end of 2015. Since 2006, ESFRI has presented a series of updated Roadmaps supporting a coherent and strategy-led approach to the development of pan-European research infrastructures, which would ensure that scientists in Europe have access to world-class facilities enabling them to do cutting-edge research.

ESFRI Chair John Womersley will present the 2016 ESFRI Roadmap. The European Commission and the Dutch State Secretary for Education, Culture and Science Sander Dekker will then comment on the new edition. In the afternoon, the focus will shift to the long term sustainability and the socio-economic impact of research infrastructures. The detailed programme will be available at the end of January, when registration opens.

This conference is part of a series of events marking the Dutch presidency of the European Union. It is organised by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in close cooperation with ESFRI, the European Commission, and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

Live stream will be available via www.knaw.nl/esfri .
