OECD Global Science Forum & ESFRI Workshop on assessing public expenditures committed to Research Infrastructures

10:00 - 16:00

This was 1 week ago




This workshop is co-organised by the OECD Global Science Forum and the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) and is dedicated to

  • investigating what are the demands from relevant stakeholders regarding RI funding data,
  • existing data-gathering mechanisms for RI funding and their limits,
  • what funding could reasonably be assessed (should this include restricted or categorised definitions of RIs, specific phases of the RI life cycle, full cost of RIs or only elements that are more easy to investigate) and
  • how better standardised RI funding information might be generated.

Participation to the workshop is free. It is required to register. A short introduction, the full agenda and the registration link are available via the announcement of the workshop on the RICH NCP network website.
