The 3rd Exchange of Experience Workshop (12.09.2018, Vienna, Austria) on "Effective Use of Preparatory Phase Funding'" aims to enable high level interaction (exchange of experiences), coordination and networking between ESFRI Projects and ESFRI Landmarks. It takes place in the frame of the ESFRI events in Vienna, the Launch of the ESFRI Roadmap 2018 and the 66th ESFRI Forum Meeting.
The workshop will review the typical steps of an RI in the (up to) ten-year preparation and early implementation phase. Participants in the workshop will be informed about the current ESFRI objectives for implementation and the (forthcoming) roadmap updates, will discuss how to identify and overcome the main barriers in RI implementation and how to optimise the use of EU Preparatory Phase funding and other resources.
Among the invited participants will be representatives from each of the ESFRI Projects on the 2018 Roadmap which are currently implementing a Preparatory Phase project or are eligible for Preparatory Phase funding under Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, representatives of ESFRI Landmarks willing to share their Preparatory Phase experiences; ESFRI Executive Board members and Chairs of Working Groups; representatives of the European Commission; Experts in legal consortium issues and StR-ESFRI representatives. Please note that registration to this Workshop is by invitation only.
The workshop will be held on 12th September 2018 from 9:00-13:30 at Hofburg Vienna, Heldenplatz 1010, Austria. It is scheduled to run just before the opening of the International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI 2018) at the same venue.
