Final conference invited by InRoad project - registration is open!
InRoad is a Horizon 2020 funded project that looks at research infrastructure decision-making, evaluation and funding practices in Europe in order to contribute to a better alignment of processes and methodologies, where relevant. After InRoad's second year of operation, the project invites you to the InRoad Final Conference. The event will take place on Wednesday, 12/12/2018 at the BIP, Rue Royale 2-4, 1000 Brussels.
During the Final Conference, InRoad will present and discuss the project findings with high level experts. The insights build mainly upon the InRoad consultation report, the InRoad compendium, the latest briefing note, and also on our final report, based on in-depth case studies and interviews, which is currently being finalised and will be released in the coming months.
They will touch upon four areas, namely (1) the coordination of national and European RI roadmapping processes, (2) embedding RI roadmapping processes in national research and innovation systems, (3) higher degree of coordination between regional, national and European funding frameworks, and (4) best practices and common standards for RI business planning.

Results from important projects: RI-PATHS
Given the current challenge of better steering impact pathways of research infrastructures an interesting deliverable was made available by RI-PATHS. The document puts emphasis on the range of methods that are applied or can be employed to trace impacts of research infrastructures. This gives valuable information for those who start to think about tracing own impact as RI or for those who define how assessments on the impact shall be conducted in future and for a specific case in focus.

Key performance indicators of Research Infrastructures - publication by CERIC-ERIC available!
Following the recent Competitiveness Council Conclusions, which mandate ESFRI to develop a common approach for monitoring the performance of research infrastructures (RIs), a questionnaire was sent by ERF-AISBL to the community of European RIs in order to gain a better insight into how they address (or would address as the case may be) the issue of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). 36 replies were received.
