ESFRI Annual Report for 2017-2018

This Biannual Report presents the results of the previous two years of ESFRI’s activity. This report is published for transparent information on the activity of ESFRI to all interested stakeholders and the general public and it is in particular made available to the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament. The Report is not a strategy document as it is only a record of activities and meetings - Plenary Forum Meetings, Executive Board and Working Group Chairs Meetings, ad hoc Working Group Meetings, conferences and workshops – carried out in 2017 and 2018. It also contains the reports provided by ESFRI to ERAC, concerning the implementation of ERA Priority 2b about Research Infrastructures.

The main achievements for ESFRI in 2017 and 2018 were

  • the realisation of the ESFRI Roadmap 2018 with the Selection and Evaluation of New Proposals of Research Infrastructures,
  • the Monitoring of ESFRI Projects and the discussion on the concept of the Periodic Update of Landmarks in the complex context of the Landscape Analysis,
  • an intense activity of workshops and editing of the ESFRI Scripta volumes on Long-Term Sustainability of RIs and on Innovation-oriented cooperation of RIs,
  • the definition of the ESFRI Position on EOSC,
  • the launch of the new ad hoc Working Group on Monitoring of RIs, and
  • the election of the new Chair for a two-plus-one year mandate with the goal of delivering the next Roadmap update in 2021.
