AnaEE attended the CoPoRI Workshop on Exchange of Experience in Brussels on 4-5 December 2013.
CoPoRI (Communication and Policy development for Research Infrastructures in Europe) is an EU-funded project supporting the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), aiming to help ESFRI research infrastructures (RIs) better achieve their policy, funding and communication goals in order to more generally reach fruition. CoPoRI organized its third Workshop on Exchange of Experience (EoE) on 4-5 December 2013.
More than 90 people attended in total, mainly representing ESFRI RIs, but also the European Commission, ESFRI itself and e-infrastructures from across Europe, as well as Peter Fletcher of Science Europe. AnaEE was represented by Evan O’Connell, Angela Baker and Susanna Siitonen.
Issues discussed included how to reach financial and managerial maturity, the added value of “going pan-European”, European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERICs), e-infrastructures, and the evolution of ESFRI and its Roadmap.
