posted in: Events | 0

For the present environmental global research panorama, it becomes essential to make research infrastructures more and more interconnected in order to enhance efficiency in addressing global challenges.

The project COOP+, funded by the European Commission within HORIZON 2020 programme, has been working to strengthen the links among the ESFRI Research Infrastructures related to marine sciences, Arctic research and biodiversity with some International counterparts for leveraging international scientific cooperation.

This Forum is promoted by COOP+ project with the following purposes:

• present status of the international cooperation for environmental RIs, based on project results as well as on the main outcomes of ICRI Conference (which will take place in Wien, September 2018)
• analyse the critical issues that still have to be dealt with to make the international cooperation among research infrastructures fruitful, efficient and long-lasting at global level agree on future activities.
• enhance the international cooperation of environmental RIs also in the light of the present and future Research Programmes (e.g. HORIZON EUROPE).
• launch an international board driving the international cooperation on the basis of a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for coordinating, developing, exploiting and enhancing interoperability of RIs

this Forum is meant to give the RIs a real opportunity to make a step ahead in the long-term planning of an international collaboration and to stimulate new cooperative initiatives.
