ESFRI Roadmap 2026 Info Day

09:00 - 12:00

Starts in 2 months from now



Esplanade Madou 1
1210 Sint-Joost-ten-Node
Room: Karel Van Miert Auditorium

The ESFRI Roadmap 2026 Info Day is organised by the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) and hosted by the European Commission in Brussels. The ESFRI Strategic Report on RIs in Europe, known as the ESFRI Roadmap, is the European Roadmap for research infrastructures, which informs on the creation of and access to large European Research Infrastructures with the vision to expand European scientific excellence. The first edition dates from 2006 and has since been updated five times (2008, 2010, 2016, 2018 and 2021). The info day is organised to kick-off the subsequent process of updating its Roadmap. The publication of the updated Roadmap is expected in December 2026. The ESFRI Landscape analysis report 2024 (executive summary), published for the first time since 2016 as a standalone document, provides the framework for the next ESFRI Roadmap 2026. During the info day top Roadmap stakeholders will provide a thorough presentation of the requirements, the procedure and the methodology of selection of proposals for new RI projects to enter the Roadmap. There will also be further presentations on the monitoring of ESFRI RI projects already on the Roadmap.

Attendance requires physical presence and registration is open to all, until maximum venue capacity is reached. The organisers expect that:

  • max. 1 person per existing ESFRI RI project or other stakeholder organisation can be accommodated
  • at least one person per provisional new ESFRI project proposal can be accommodated

Expressions of interest to attend the info day need to be submitted via the registration form by the end of June. A follow-up confirmation email is expected to be send during the first week of July.

STARGATE - Sustainable Aviation

The Stargate project obtained funding under the special Green Deal call of Horizon 2020, more in particular under the topic of “green ports and airports”.  It received the maximum score of the evaluators and was selected out of more than 40 projects. Stargate’s purpose is to prove that sustainable aviation is possible and happening. It focuses on the further decarbonization of the aviation industry, the improvement of local environmental quality and the stimulation of the modal split. Together with a consortium of 21 European partners with a diverse and rich expertise (airports, community partners, knowledge institutions, consultants, local governments, …), Brussels Airports takes the lead as lighthouse airport to develop and implement innovative solutions. Results that prove successful can be deployed at the fellow airports (Toulouse, Budapest, Athens). Over the course of the coming five years, the consortium will exchange knowledge to investigate and realize more than 30 concrete projects.
