European Research Infrastructures for a Smarter Future

The Croatian Presidency of
the Council of the European Union cordially invites you to participate in the European
Research Infrastructures for a Smarter Future
Conference to be held in Zagreb
on 18 and 19 March 2020
at the Šubićeva centre (Šubićeva ulica 29), in the
framework of the Future of Research Infrastructures in European Research

Addressing the big challenges of
the 21st century, such as climate change, the increasing loss of biodiversity
and environmental quality, demographic changes, shaping the industrial and
digital transitions as well as ensuring the long-term sustainability of the
European quality of life requires a new ambition for European science.

As European Research
Infrastructures form the backbone of our competitiveness
in science and
innovation, their quality and the ability to provide the needed services and
data largely determines our capacity to produce the new knowledge, innovation
and understanding that Europe needs to tackle the challenges we face. The
overall objective of the conference is to explore the potential of European
Research Infrastructures
to make a meaningful impact on the European
strategic agendas and identify the ways in which this could be achieved. The
outcome of this high-level event will provide a new impetus for the European
research infrastructure policy, supporting full realisation of the potential of
the European Research Area to drive the necessary changes in our economy and

The conference is divided into
three main blocks and concludes with a high-level panel identifying directions
for future European research infrastructure policy. The presentation of the
ESFRI White Paper on the future of European research infrastructures policy in
the opening plenary, with its key messages, will set the scene for the
discussions throughout the conference on:

  • Building synergies between
    sectoral investments in Research Infrastructures and the European
    strategic agendas
  • The role of Research
    Infrastructures in the mission-driven activities of Horizon Europe
  • Education and jobs – how
    Research Infrastructures can shape the future?
  • European Research
    Infrastructures for a smarter future – high-level policy panel
