OBJECTIVES OF THE FUNDING PROGRAMME
This call will open up key national and regional research infrastructures to all European researchers from both academia and industry as well as ensure their optimal use and joint development. In addition to serving basic science challenges, Integrating Activities target research infrastructures, ranging across all fields of science and technology, needed to support the EU political priorities and address the Societal Challenges, including Focus Areas. They also target research infrastructures needed to gain leadership in the industrial and enabling technologies. ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) and other world-class research infrastructures are not specifically targeted by this call. Nevertheless, where relevant, they can participate in an integrating activity together with other key national and regional research infrastructures.
