First ERIC Forum Policy Seminar

14 – 15 September, 2020, online. This first ever ERIC Forum policy seminar will focus on funding models for access to ERIC multinational/ transnational services. It will provide a unique opportunity for EU and national policy makers to open a dialogue with the ERIC community regarding the sustainability of ERICs and Research Infrastructures, discussing and sharing experiences in the use of the existing funding mechanisms that support access to the services provided by ERICs.

Through its various sessions, the meeting aims to discuss the opportunities ahead and build recommendations to optimize the use of ERICs as instruments for transnational cooperation. The meeting will be attended by high level EU and national decision makers, including Jean-Eric Paquet, Director General of DG Research and Innovation (DG RTD).  These details are availble on the ERIC Forum site.
