ESFRI – European Strategy Forum on
Research Infrastructures
• Set up by the EU Council of Research Ministers in 2002
• Brings together representatives of Ministers of the 27 Member
States, 10 Associated States, and of the European Commission
• Supports a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy making
on Research Infrastructures
• Mandate to develop a Roadmap
ESFRI – The Roadmap
– The ESFRI roadmap identifies new pan-European
Research Infrastructures or major up-grades to existing
ones, corresponding to the needs of European research
communities in the next 10 to 20 years, in all fields of
Sciences and Technologies, regardless of possible
location
– First Roadmap published in 2006
– Followed by two updates in 2008 and 2010:


Now contains 48 projects
Requiring major financial investment (~20 b€) and long
term commitment for operation (~2 b€/year)

ERIC: European Research
Infrastructure Consortium
– A new legal framework, at EU level, to facilitate the joint
establishment and operation of Research Infrastructures of
European interest among several countries
– Legal personality recognised in all EU Member States
– Amendment under way to enable contributions from
Associated Countries to be fully taken into account
– ERICs established:
SHARE (March 2011, hosted by NL)
CLARIN (February 2012, hosted by NL)
– Current applications:
ECRIN, EATRIS, BBMRI, Euro-ARGO, European Social
Survey,CERIC (Central European RI Consortium)
– In preparation:
ICOS (?), LIFEWATCH, CESSDA, EGI (European Grid
Initiative), JIVE (Radio astronomy) EMSO, ELI
Commitments within Innovation Union
– “By 2015 (…) have completed or launched the
construction of 60% of the priority European research
infrastructures currently identified by ESFRI …”
– “… opening of Member State operated research
infrastructures to the full European user community…”
– “The EU should step up its cooperation on the roll-out of
global research infrastructures. By 2012, agreement
should be reached with international partners on the
development of research infrastructures, including ICT
infrastructures, which owing to cost, complexity and/or
interoperability requirements can only be developed on
a global scale”
Implementation of ESFRI RIs
• Social Science and Humanities: SHARE (ERIC); CLARIN (ERIC);
ESSurvey (ERIC application)
• Environmental Sciences: EURO-ARGO (ERIC application)
• Biological and Medical Sciences: EATRIS (ERIC application); ECRIN
(ERIC application); INSTRUCT (ICA, Ltd); ELIXIR (ICA, EMBL special
project)
• Energy: JHR (ICA)
• Engineering, Physical Sciences, Materials and Analytical Facilities:
ESRF upgrade (EIRO, société civile); European XFEL (EIRO, GmbH);
ILL 20/20 upgrade (EIRO, société civile); FAIR (GmbH); SPIRAL2
(CNRS/CEA), E-ELT (ESO)
• E-Infrastructures: PRACE (AISBL)
Implementation of ESFRI projects
“A combination of resources from national budgets,
Community programmes, EIB instruments and structural
funds should lead to the development of excellent research
infrastructures throughout Europe”
EU Council of Research Ministers
March 2009
New mandate to ESFRI
for implementation of ESFRI projects
Approved during the lunch discussions at the October
Competitiveness Council during the CY Presidency of the EU. It
will be included in the Conclusions of the December
Competitiveness Council

ESFRI Implementation Working Group
Identify/analyse bottlenecks for implementation
and propose solutions
Support implementation regarding:
Governance
Legal issues
Access and Data policy
Stimulate communication between sciencific
communities and funding agencies
Summarize lessons learned/provide
recommendations
14
ESFRI Implementation Working Group
Presentations/discussions with project coordinators
Workshop in Amsterdam
– Common issues: Governance, Funding, IPR, Statutes,
Open Access and Data sets
Conclusions:
– Projects on ESFRI roadmap are at very different stages
of maturity
– Governments are not well-enough connected to ESFRI
projects
– Most projects start preparatory phase without (financial)
commitment
– Transition from preparatory phase to implementation is
often problematic
15
ESFRI Implementation Working Group
Preliminary Recommendations:
– Roadmap projects should involve all stakeholders (MS,
AC, non-EU countries) from an early stage.
– MS/ACs should examine how they can better fit ESFRI
projects into their national roadmap
– Projects and Member States should explore the use of
structural funds to finance national nodes of distributed
pan-European RIs.
– ESFRI should politically support the roadmap projects by
raising awareness among the member states.
16
Expert Group on Assessment
The EC has set up an Expert Group on Assessment of
the ESFRI projects.
This group will assess the financial and managerial
maturity of the projects of the ESFRI roadmap.
The members of the Expert Group are high level
managers expert in setting up and managing RIs
The Implementation WG will work together with the this
Expert Group and the Strategy Working Groups to assist
the implementation of he projects.

Cohesion policy 2014-2020 & EU 2020
Commission adopted its proposals 6 October 2011:
- Cohesion policy (ERDF, CF & ESF) will focus on Europe 2020
objectives for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, along with rural
development policy (EAFRD) and maritime and fisheries policy (EMFF),
- List of thematic objectives developed around the Europe 2020 headline
targets and flagship initiatives
- Thematic concentration for maximising impact: minimum shares for
research and innovation through ERDF
- Ex-ante conditionality, e.g. existence of a Research and Innovation
Strategy for Smart Specialisation (RIS3).
Commission has adopted “Elements for a Common Strategic Framework
2014 to 2020” for cohesion. Linkages have been clarified with Horizon
2020.
Thematic Objectives to Deliver EU 2020
- Strengthening research, technological development and innovation
- Enhancing access to, and use and quality of, information and communication
technologies
- Enhancing the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises, the
agricultural sector (for the EAFRD) and the fisheries and aquaculture sector (for
the EMFF)
- Supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors
- Promoting climate change adaptation, risk prevention and management
- Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency
- Promoting sustainable transport and removing bottlenecks in key network
infrastructures
- Promoting employment and supporting labour mobility (mainly ESF)
- Promoting social inclusion and combating poverty (mainly ESF)
- Investing in education, skills and lifelong learning (mainly ESF)
- Institutional capacity and efficient public administration (mainly ESF)
Smart Specialisation
Research & Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS³) will
lead to an economic transformation based on 4Cs:
- (Tough) Choices: select few priorities on the basis of international
specialisation integration on international value chains
- Competitive (Constructed) Advantage: mobilize talent by matching
Research & Innovation with business needs & capacities
- Critical Mass: provide arenas for cross-cutting links between sectors
which drive specialised technological diversification; address generic
technologies, based on cutting edge research, as well as their exploitation
and adaptation to specific sectors
- Collaborative Leadership: efficient innovation systems as a collective
endeavour based on public-private partnership (quadruple helix) and
synergies between funding instruments from the EU, national and regional
policies
Key Messages
Implementation of the projects on the ESFRI roadmap is
our highest priority
– ESFRI is trying to provide help and best practice, but the MS
have to be the major source of funding
 National roadmapping and priority setting
Next ESFRI Roadmap update
– In 2-3 years time
– Will only be credible if a substantial fraction of the existing
roadmap is in implementation (or if we are willing to reprioritise)
Horizon 2020
– Significant funding for the RI sector but work is required
(smart specialisation strategy)
