Starts in 1 month from now



Programmes RI  

The European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) in collaboration with the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU organise two open events which are part of the ESFRI Days 2021.

  • 7 December half day: Launch of 2021 ESFRI Roadmap on Large Scale Research Infrastructures, which will include 11 new Research Infrastructure Projects and report on the development of Research Infrastructures on the existing Roadmap (2018). More information, agenda and registration (will be supplemented in due time)


  • 8 December 9:00-17:00: The 1st ESFRI Stakeholders Forum Meetup. The newly established ESFRI Stakeholders Forum was developed by ESFRI with the aim to stimulate an open dialogue among the different European research infrastructure stakeholders, in order to reinforce the position of Research Infrastructures (RIs) as an essential pillar of the European Research Area (ERA). This concept was presented in the ESFRI White Paper adopted in 2020. More information, agenda and registration (will be supplemented in due time)

It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.

At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
