Joint expert group on infrastructure mapping
In December 2012 the Memorandum of
Understanding between the Ministries of Education
and Sciences of three Baltic states was signed
 To coordinate the R&D infrastructure development plans,
national RI roadmaps and ICT infrastructures
 Create a basis for constant exchange of information on
research and innovations
Group of 8 people was nominated:
 To map and prepare comprehensive inventory of the
research infrastructures
Joint expert group on infrastructure mapping
 Latvia
 Vadims Murašovs (Ministry of Education and Science)
 Maija Bundule (Latvian Council of Science),
 Indriķis Muižnieks (University of Latvia)
• Tālis Juhna (Riga Technical University)
 Lithuania
 Kristina Babelyté-Labanauské (Ministry of Education and Science)
 Tadas Juknevičius (Ministry of Education and Science)
 Arūnas Poviliūnas (Research Council of Lithuania).
 Estonia
 Toivo Räim (Ministry of Education and Research),
 Priit Tamm (Estonian Research Council)
Joint expert group on infrastructure mapping
Meeting in Tallinn – May 29, 2013
 Different possibilities how to proceed with mapping of research
infrastructures in Baltic countries were discussed
 start pilot collection of data on the research facilities that identify itself as
Open Access Facility -the facility should provide certain services to users.
 The quality level of facilities will be assured by agency providing information
to mapping exercise
 MERIL Data Dictionary for the Minimum Data Set used for questionnaires
Meeting in Riga – February 3, 2014
 Preliminary results of research infrastructure (RI) mapping discussed
 Decision on the form of dissemination of RI mapping results - list of Baltic RI
should be published on web
 discussion about possible RI support schemes in Baltic States, e.g. possibility
of establishing administrative and financial schemes for Estonian, Latvian and
Lithuanian researchers to access RI in Baltic States
 discuss the progress of developing Baltic Bonus programs in all three countries
Joint expert group on infrastructure mapping: RESULTS
On May 20, 2014 mapping of RI is finished: results
are available on web
Estonia : List and descriptive information with links is
provided for 8 Estonian Core Infrastructures
Latvia: List and descriptive information with links is
provided for 17 Research Infrastructures
Lithuania: Searchable list and descriptive
information with links is provided for 19 Open
Access Centers

Further suggestions on RI mapping
 Managers of RI should look through the lists, comment on
them, and then become responsible for updating information
when it has been published-the agency that hosts the list on
web is to be responsible for updating this information.
 Development of a support scheme for the use of RI in the
Baltic countries is important (e.g.– to allow the use of RI for
free or for the reduced fee for the researchers from the Baltic
countries - this would be an additional Baltic Bonus scheme)
 Necessity to develop a grant system that covers the access to
RI in the Baltic countries -a proposal for the political decision
on that
Further suggestions on RI planning and collaboration
Formation of Baltic strategic infrastructure forum is
needed with the aim to create Baltic infrastructure
roadmap ( therefore, it is crucial for Latvia to
develop its roadmap first)
Expert group can identify RIs with common interests
from all Baltic States and invite the managers of
these RI to meeting in order to develop proposals for
Baltic infrastructure roadmap and coordinate the
development plans
