Research Infrastructures

"Enhancing and optimising RIs and their access by scientists and innovation developers is a key ingredient of competitiveness as well as a necessary basis for tackling the grand societal challenges." (ESFRI)

The European approach to research infrastructures has made remarkable progress in recent years with the implementation of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap, integrating and opening national research facilities and developing e-infrastructures underpinning a digital European Research Area. The Member States and the Associated Countries operate a diverse system of RIs ranging from well-established sectors like physics, astronomy, energy and materials science, mostly based on large single-sited laboratories, to the fast developing health, food, environment and cultural innovation sectors where novel architectures of RIs are being developed that build on distributed capacity and speciality.

Within H2020 the objective is to develop the European RIs for 2020 and beyond so as they become a new world-class RIs by integrating and opening national RIs of pan-European interest, development, and through deployment and operation of ICT based e-Infrastructures. This to foster the innovation potential of RIs and their human capital while also reinforcing European RI policy and international cooperation. is providing information on a number of Research infrastructures (RIs), important research facilities and research equipment in Western Balkan countries (but also EU-wide) collected in our RI database. This covers services, facilities, equipment and resources that are used by the scientific community to conduct a research in respective scientific fields.The Database is open for inputs. Private or public institutions who operate and maintain Research Infrastructure / important equipment are warmly invited to register (Examples: small, medium or large scale research installations, institutes and faculties with important research equipment and facilities, libraries, research databases, archives, high speed communication networks, networks of computers facilities, meteorological observation facilities, research vessels etc.).

Find below all information we published as far as the research infrastructures are concerned.
