  1. An highlight on EU activities onResearch Infrastructures Miloš Kuret Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology, Slovenia

  2. Definition of Research Infrastructures • Facilities, resources, and related services usedby the scientific community for • Conducting leading-edge research • Knowledge transmission, knowledge exchangesand knowledge preservation • Includes • Major scientific equipment • Scientific collections, archives and structured information • ICT-based infrastructures • Entities of a unique nature, used for research

  3. Research Infrastructures are at the core of the knowledge Triangle Research Education Research infrastructures Knowledge « industry » Innovation

  4. European Survey of Research Infrastructures Aim: analysis + respective trends & developments March-April 06:Initial submission phase led by EC May-December 06:Validation process by ESF • Validation of the entries received by EC • Nomination of missing major RIs December 06- up to now:Finalization by EC • Getting responses from RIs nominated by ESF • Breaking down all RIs by categories (598 entries) • Extracting the first results from the database

  5. Average Lower Bound of RI Investment by Domains (total: 598 RIs, 35 690 M€) 90 83,0 80,2 78,7 73,4 80 65,6 70 59,8 60 53,0 50 40 Million Euros 26,2 30 21,8 21,0 20 10 0 All domains Humanities Social Sciences Environmental, Energy Biomedical and Nuclearand Materials Engineering Computerand Marine, Earth Life Sciences Particle Physics, Sciences datatreatment Sciences Astronomy, Astrophysics Research Infrastructures need a minimum investmentfor construction 20 M€ threshold?

  7. ESFRI E urope an S trate gy F orum o n Research Infrastructures Towards a coherent policy for Research Infrastructures… • A European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures • Launched in April 02 • Brings together representatives of the 27 Member States,5 Associated States, and one representative of the European Commission (EC)

  8. Mandate from the Council of Ministers,November 2004 The Roadmap is the result of two years of intensive work About 1000 high-level experts were involved, from every MS and AS, from most fields and user communities, giving the end product credibility and quality. It is the beginning of an ongoing process Report 2006 The Roadmap

  16. FP7 2007 - 2013 Budget (M€) - Source: Council decision in December 2006 “Capacities”

  17. Objectives of the CommunityResearch Infrastructures action • Optimising the use and development of the best existing research infrastructures in Europe • Helping to create in all fields of S & T new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the European scientific community • Supporting programme implementation and policy development (e.g. international cooperation)

  18. FP7 will increase support to new research infrastructures • Support to the Construction of new infrastructures and major upgrades • Preparatory Phase– to support all work needed to initiate construction of a new RI • Implementation Phase- mainly left to MS, the owners of the new facilities • Design studies: to support the conceptual design for new facilities or major upgrades, of clear European dimension and interest • through bottom-up calls

  19. Preparatory phase- purpose • To provide a framework facilitating decision-making between partners from different countries • To address all the critical issues (legal, financial,..) that need to be resolved to allow the project moving forward

  20. 594 participants are involved (90% MS, 6.5% AS, 3.5% other) On the average: 19 Participants from 11 different countries per ESFRI proposal About 9% of the total participants (53/594) from 12 MS, are from Convergence Regions, eligible to receive Structural Funds Some info on Call N° 1 …

  21. Preparatory Phase facilitating financial engineering for new research infrastructures Member States European Commission Stakeholdersincl. EIROs Inclusion in national Programmes Inclusion in Specific RTD Programme(s) Inclusion in DG REGIO / DG DEV strategic plans Projects EIB RSFF

  22. … Importance of creating synergies between SFs and FP7 • Recent CREST report • Need for coordination at regional and national levels • Strategy planning for mid- to long term: more important than projects themselves • A vision for the next 10-20 years fostering capacity building and excellence

  23. Objectives of the CommunityResearch Infrastructures action • Optimising the use and development of the best existing research infrastructures in Europe • Helping to create in all fields of S & T new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the European scientific community • Supporting programme implementation and policy development (e.g. international cooperation)

  24. Importance of Community actions: • to reduce European fragmentation and dispersion of existing facilities • To stimulate more international cooperation in certain fields • To help developing a research market for access to and use ofinstallations / research services

  25. Main characteristics of an Integrating Activity • Average number of contractors: 19 (under FP6) of which 7 offering access • Typical duration: 4 years • Average EC contribution: ~10 M€ • Management: ~ 6% • Networking Activities: ~ 15% • Trans-national Access: ~ 30-40% • Joint Research Activities ~ 40-50% • List of funded projects (FP6)http://cordis.europa.eu/infrastructures/projects

  26. EUSAAR (Environment) Developing a pan-European research infrastructure for the measurements of atmospheric properties EC contribution: 5.1 M€ • TA (~0.2 M€): • 11 ground-based stations for atmospheric research • NA (~3.2 M€): • Standards and exchange of good practices on sampling, measurement and analysis of aerosol parameters • Training on aerosol sampling and measurements • Web portal and Database on aerosol products • JRA (1.7 M€): • Methodology for determining aerosol optical density • Standards for aerosol hygroscopic growth analysis • A real time data collection of aerosol measurements • A network of research stations based on regional diversity

  29. FP7 will continue supporting existing Research Infrastructures • Integrating Activitiesto promote the coherent use and development of research infrastructures in a given field, implemented through: • Bottom-upcalls • Targetedcalls • ICT basede-infrastructuresin support of scientific research

  30. Next calls for proposals N°2 (e-infrastructures) + N° 3 • Indicative budget of 63 + 275 M€ • 25 to 30 RTD projects to be selected • Call 2: e-science GRID • Call 3: for RTD; both bottom up and targeted approach • Closure: 20 Sept 2007 (call 2) + 15 Feb 2008 (call 3) • More information to be provided mid-2007

  31. Topics for RI’s under the targeted approach • 29 priority topics in 8 of the “Cooperation” domains • Health (6 topics) • Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology (4 topics) • Information and Communication Technologies (3) • Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies and Materials (2) • Energy (5 topics) • Environment (4 topics) • Transport (2 topics dealing with aeronautics) • Socioeconomic Sciences and Humanities (3)

  32. Reminder of EC evaluation criteria • Evaluation by independent experts • S&T quality: excellence of the overall project and of the specific activities • Impact: contribution of the project in integrating existing facilities at European level • Implementation: management, partnership, implementation plan and allocation of resources Need for experts…

  33. Existing Infrastructures New Infrastructures Design studies Integrating activities ESFRIRoadmap Construction (preparatory phase; construction phase) e-infrastructures Policy Development / Programme Implementation FP7 Research Infrastructures in brief 30% increase according to FP6

  34. Planning of calls and indicative budget

  35. … in summary, an improved FP7 action for Research Infrastructures • Better consistency within FP7 (targeted calls) • Tackling better fragmentation (Integrating Activities) • Catalysing effect towards the constructionor major upgrade of Research Infrastructures • A vision for the next 10-20 years fostering capacity building and excellence(update of ESFRI roadmap will soon start)

  36. Research Infrastructuresare identified as a key area in the green book on ERA • The purpose is to assess the progress made in establishing ERA and to discuss future directions • An online public consultation has been launched:http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/ipm/forms/dispatch?form=ERAGreenPaper http://ec.europa.eu/research/era/index_en.html
