The aim of this topic is to deliver innovative scientific instrumentation, tools and methods, which advance the state-of-art of European RIs, and show transformative potential in RIs operation. The related developments, which underpin the provision of improved and advanced services, should lead research infrastructures to support new areas of research and/or a wider community of users, including industrial users.

Cutting-edge technologies will also enhance the potential of RIs to contribute addressing EU policy objectives and socio-economic challenges.

Proposals should address all following aspects:

  • Research and development of new scientific instrumentation, tools and methods for research infrastructures taking into due account resource efficiency (e.g. energy consumption) and environmental (including climate-related) impacts;
  • their technology validation and prototyping;
  • training of RI staff for the operation and use of these new solutions;
  • the innovative potential for industrial exploitation of the solutions and/or for the benefits of the society.

Expected Outcome:

Project results are expected to contribute to several of the following expected outcomes:

  • enhanced scientific competitiveness of European research infrastructures
  • foundations for the development of innovative companies;
  • increase of the technological level of industries through the co-development of advanced technologies for research infrastructures and creation of potential new markets;
  • integration of research infrastructures into local, regional and global innovation systems.


Consortia must be built around a leading core of at least 3 world-class research infrastructures, being ESFRI infrastructures, European Research Infrastructures Consortia (ERICs) and/or other world-class research infrastructures of European interest[1] and can include a wider set of RIs. Other technological partners, including industry and SMEs, should also be involved, thus promoting innovation and knowledge sharing through co-development of new technical solutions for research infrastructures.
