On Thursday 10th March 2016, the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) conference took place at the headquarters of the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam.
During this conference, ESFRI Chair John Womersley presented the ESFRI Roadmap on Research Infrastructures and officially confirmed the ESFRI Landmark status for 29 Reasch Infrastructures, among which CLARIN ERIC.
The ESFRI Roadmap identifies Research Infrastructures (RI) of pan-European interest corresponding to the long-term needs of the European research communities, covering all scientific areas, regardless of possible location.
Since 2006, ESFRI has presented a series of updated Roadmaps supporting a coherent and strategy-led approach to the European Council’s policy-making. Its mission is to ensure that leading researchers in the Union have access to high-quality RIs and to facilitate initiatives leading to the better use of such infrastructures.
