ERIC Regulation


The European Commission proposed a Regulation on a Community legal framework (based on Article 171 of the EC Treaty) for establishing a European Research Infrastructures Consortium (ERIC) which entered in force into August 2009. In December 2013, the Council adopted the Council Regulation amending the ERIC Regulation of 2009. The participation of countries associated to the EU Research framework programmes in ERICs is now on the same footing as EU Member States. Their contributions to ERICs will be fully reflected in terms of membership and voting rights.
