Completed Projects


EU-OPENSCREEN-DRIVE will ensure long-term sustainability of EU-OS operations by promoting measures for

  1. widening awareness of academia and industry for its services and data,
  2. growing capacity and competence in its field across Europe, and
  3. completing the management processes needed for a large distributed infrastructure.

CORBEL is an initiative of thirteen new biological and medical research infrastructures (BMS RIs), which together will create a platform for harmonised user access to biological and medical technologies, biological samples and data services required by cutting-edge biomedical research. CORBEL will boost the efficiency, productivity and impact of European biomedical research.

One of the long-term sustainability results is the newly developed European Life Science Research Infrastructures website, which highlights access and open calls from all LS-RIs for external researchers and the history of CORBEL.

ERIC Forum

The ERIC Forum Implementation Project is a Horizon2020 project which brings together 20 established European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERICs) and 3 ERICs in preparation to strengthen their coordination and enhance their collaborations. The strategic approach of the ERIC Forum will contribute to address critical challenges and develop best practices.

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Biological and Medical ‘ESFRI’ research infrastructures (BMS RIs) to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research.

The project will publish ‘FAIR’ data and a catalogue of services provided by participating RIs for the management, storage and reuse of data in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

RI-VIS is a Horizon 2020 funded project to increase the visibility of European research infrastructures (RIs) to new communities in Europe and beyond.

The objectives of RI-VIS are to:

  • Map RI services to new target communities and identify routes to maximize exchange of information and basis for new partnerships
  • Create an outreach programme to provide information, bring research infrastructures together with new target communities and facilitate collaborative engagement
  • Create a collection of tools that are freely available to all research infrastructures that have demonstrated efficacy and impact in facilitating new cooperative relationships

EU-OPENSCREEN co-leads the Work Package 3 ‘International outreach and partnering events’ and co-organises global symposia to engage with new user communities and research infrastructures. In 2021, we co-organised global symposia with a focus on Africa (Feb 1-2, 2021), Latin America (June 15-17, 2021), Australia (October 5-7, 2021) and Russia (December 17, 2021). The symposia brought together >1,300 delegates from international Research Infrastructures (RIs), science policy organisations and research institutions to discuss opportunities and challenges for intercontinental RI cooperation..

EU-OPENSCREEN contributed to three White Papers that provide recommendations on how to increase collaboration between European research infrastructures and counterparts from Africa, Latin America and Australia. The papers are targeted at funders, policy makers and research infrastructure managers and collate the insights of 21 experts from research infrastructures and policymakers from the respective regions. The White Papers are available here.

Together with EMBRC/CCMAR and the South African Department of Science and Technology, EU-OPENSCREEN co-authored the ‘Communication guidelines for European research infrastructures: engaging with stakeholders in African countries’, which are available on Zenodo. RI-VIS also published similar communication guidelines for Latin America.

Furthermore, RI-VIS has developed the “Communication Toolkit for European Research Infrastructures”, which provides an easy and useful set of tools, guidelines and resources to improve the communication strategy and activities of research infrastructures. Its common use is expected to increase the individual and collective visibility of research infrastructures, by aligning key-messages and improving how different stakeholders perceive them. The Communication Toolkit can be downloaded here.
