"Future Access to European Research Infrastructures: Benefits to Academia, Industry and Society"
Lund (Sweden), 27 October 2009
Access to research infrastructures (RIs) is the corner-stone of the well-known knowledge triangle: innovation, research and training. In this context, RIs are now so emblematic vis-a-vis the political support to research activities that the decision-making process for providing them with a realistic operation budget or for deciding to invest in a new one or in a heavy enhancement programme regularly leads to a dramatic questioning on the RI's access policy in terms of perimeter relevance , excellence and transparency.
This ERF seminar on Open Access shall bring together key stakeholders from research facilities, scientific communities, industry and funding agencies across Europe to discuss these relevant matters, share valuable experiences and provide best practice guidelines.
