Launch of the EU-CELAC ResInfra project under the Horizon 2020 program

On January 30 and 31, the Kick off meeting will be held. The project “Towards a new EU-CELAC association in Research Infrastructures” has recently been approved under the Horizon 2020 program.

EU-CELAC ResInfra will identify a number of CELAC RIs that may be considered eligible for the construction of a bi-regional collaboration. This will be carried out through the definition of minimal key requirements these RIs would need to develop in the coming years.

EU-CELAC ResInfra will develop a map of National and Regional Research Infrastructure policies, and their corresponding strategies and plans, included funding mechanisms that might be used to support the construction and operation of future EU-CELAC RIs.

Finally, EU-CELAC ResInfra will use all the results and information obtained for drafting a Sustainability Plan, which will be presented to the EU-CELAC RI WG for discussion and endorsement. The Plan will include specific actions to support the bi-regional collaboration in a mid-term perspective. The objective is to design specific variable geometry instruments for co-funding RIs of common interest, and to design measures that pursue the strengthening of the bi-regional RI cooperation, seeking to maximise the impact of the RI collaboration in the construction of the EU-CELAC Common Research Area.

In parallel, the Project aims to show the feasibility of the EU-CELAC RI collaboration through existing examples thanks to the development of four pilots in different scientific domains that are linked to some existing Research Infrastructures: INSTRUCT-ERIC, LIFEWATCH-ERIC, E-RIHS and RICAP.

Given the above, this project will allow its partners to strengthen its public policies that aim at research infrastructures.
