The e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) organises two open workshops every year, each under the auspices of the corresponding EU presidency. During the last years, the e-IRG Workshops have been organised as virtual events due to the Covid-19 pandemic, now the e-IRG Workshop under Czech EU Presidency will be organised as a face-to-face event bringing together all e-IRG stakeholder in Prague.

The pre-final version of the e-IRG White Paper 2022 will be presented comprising an analysis of responses to the guiding questions which has been sent to the e-Infrastructure initiatives and the further inputs from them will be presented, requesting feedback from the e-IRG major audiences, namely, the policy makers and funders (including the EC, both DG RTD and DG Connect), the e-Infrastructures themselves (commenting also on each others’ views), and the end users.
