Brno Declaration highlights essential role of research infrastructures
During the closing day of ICRI 2022, the Brno Declaration on Fostering a Global Ecosystem of Research Infrastructures (RI) was introduced. The declaration which highlights the essential role of research infrastructures, is a complementary political document to the Council Conclusions on Research Infrastructures. It invites RI policy-makers and funders, operators and users, and other stakeholders, including outside research and innovation, to foster a global RI ecosystem, including both large-scale installations, mid-and small-sized RIs, as well as single-sited, distributed, and virtual RIs. This call for action is supported by the European Union Member States and the European Commission, which are open to using their own processes, and the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) to underpin the development of a thriving global Research Infrastructures ecosystem.
