ResInfra@DR Call for single experts & expert teams to contribute to the creation & development of a Nuclear Medicine Center – deadline: 18/03/2019


In the framework of the project ResInfra@DR, the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) releases an open call for single experts or expert teams to participate in a pilot activity for the support in designing/developing of the Nuclear Medicine Center at the Horia Hulubei National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering and the Extreme Light Infrastructure – Nuclear Physics from Magurele, Romania.
The core element of this support action will consist of providing specific recommendations by an expert team that will work together with the ResInfra@DR partnership. The recommendations will focus on the steps or activities that will contribute to the creation and development of the Nuclear Medicine Center.

ResInfra@DR Pilot Actions – Life science/medical infrastructure experts or teams to contribute to a pilot action – deadline: 15/03/2019


The ResInfra@DR project is currently running several pilot actions with the aim to support research infrastructures in the Danube region. We are currently looking for experts with experience in the review of life science related infrastructures with a focus on medical research facilities.
If you are interested, please contact or for further details untill 15/03/2019, 17.00 CET. The ToR will be sent to the interested experts.


SAVE-THE-DATE: ResInfra@DR Final Event in Vienna: 12-13/06/2019


The meeting “Perspectives for Research Infrastructures in the Danube macro-region” will invite international RI experts and showcase results of the ResInfra@DR project.

The event will provide a platform for mutual exchange with important RI stakeholders in the Danube macro-region. Reflecting on the project achievements will be a vital starting point for a regional action plan. In doing so, the event includes interactive exchange sessions which allow to receive first hand information from other stakeholders in the region. Take the chance to meet the ResInfraDR community built during the project duration to develop a future-orientated perspective for the region!

Further details on the event including the participation options will be available in our next newsletter.

InRoad project successfully completed its activities

InRoad, a two year Horizon 2020 project aimed to foster a higher degree of coordination of priority setting, evaluation and funding mechanisms as well as sustainable planning for Research Infrastructures (RI) in Europe, was coming to an end in December 2018. A final newsletter gives a comprehensive overview on project’s achievments – also including a review on ResInfra@DR. Our project wants to thank the InRoad team for its good cooperation on communication and dissemination during project duration!

Call to take part in the second round of RI-PATHS workshops

As a follow-up to the scoping workshops held in November-December 2018, RI-PATHS project team invites the RI community to express interest in joining the second round of participatory workshops on socio-economic impact assessment. Different from the first round of workshops where the emphasis was placed on identifying the main impact areas and co-designing the impact pathway logic, these workshops will focus on finding suitable indicators, metrics and assessment methods in specific impact areas. Emphasis will be placed also on discussing the existing best practices for data gathering and future data needs.

Workshops will be held on 08/05 at DESY (Hamburg), 09/05 at ELIXIR (Cambridge) and 10/05/2019 at ALBA (Barcelona).

OCRE enables easy cloud usage through the European Open Science Cloud

The Open Clouds for Research Environments project (OCRE), aims to accelerate cloud adoption in the European research community, by bringing together cloud providers, Earth Observation (EO) organisations and the research and education community, through ready-to-use service agreements and €9.5 million in adoption funding. Cloud-based services offer the European research community a wealth of powerful tools, but for many researchers, these are currently out of reach, with suitable services difficult to find and select.
OCRE, which launched in January 2019, will address this by running a pan-European tender and establishing framework agreements with cloud service providers that meet the specific requirements of the research community, saving institutions the time-consuming and complex process of doing this themselves.
