South Africa to Host Global Research Infrastructures Forum

The 2016 International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI2016) will “explore the move toward a reinforced cooperation on globally-relevant Research infrastructures” and “discuss concrete steps in that direction”. The event is being organised by the European Commission and South Africa’s Department of Science and Technology. “Research infrastructures are core enablers of competitive research, development and innovation, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge,” the ICRI2016 website says. “They are often, by nature, cross-border and exploitable by multiple disciplines. Research Infrastructures are also highly data intensive, with more and more virtually enabled access, leading the way to global exploitation.” [Image credit: www.ntnu.edu]
