Commission launches consultation on European e-infrastructure
The process towards the Horizon 2020 Work Programme (WP) covering the period 2018-2020 has started.
As regards e-infrastructures, Work Programme 2018-2020 will build on the structure of the current WP, which supports (1) integrating and consolidating e-infrastructure platforms, (2) prototyping innovative e-infrastructure platforms and services, and (3) policy and international cooperation for e-infrastructures. It will address both the objectives of Horizon 2020 and EU-wide policy initiatives such as the Digital Single Market and the forthcoming European Cloud initiative.
The consultation process involves an open consultation allowing the European Commission to gather the input of e-infrastructure stakeholders. The deadline for this consultation is 30 April 2016.
