OBJECTIVES OF THE FUNDING PROGRAMME
This call will reinforce European research infrastructures policy and international cooperation. Pooling and sharing of resources at European level requires the development of well defined policies and agreed mechanisms of cooperation and assessment. The global dimension of the scientific challenges addressed by European research infrastructures makes increasingly relevant their international cooperation with research infrastructures in other world regions as well as the development of global research infrastructures. The development of policy and international cooperation activities are, in addition to this call, encouraged in any proposal submitted to other parts of this work programme, where they appear to be relevant.
