12 December 2013 saw representatives from biomedical science, health and food-related research infrastructures meet at the EMBL-EBI headquarters in Hinxton, UK (near Cambridge). AnaEE was represented by Chris Rawlings of Rothamsted Research.
Matters discussed included the ESFRI Implementation group meeting and the Development of the Charter and Code for Access to research infrastructures, which was set to be shared with all coordinators, and which focuses on researcher mobility. There was also feedback from October ESFRI/JPI workshops in Brussels, feedback and update on the ESFRI prioritisation process, talk of Horizon 2020 and interactions with research infrastructures (particularly through clusters), I3 applications and discussion of further political activities by BioMedBridges and Food and Health (formerly BMS) research infrastructures. The need to work together with existing life science infrastructures and international partners was also raised.
