This call focuses on developing new world-class research infrastructures. The aim is to facilitate and support the implementation and long-term sustainability of the research infrastructures identified by the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) as well as of other world-class research infrastructures. These will help Europe respond to grand challenges in science, industry and society.

Proposals may address the following topic:

  • Design Studies - it should address all key questions concerning the technical and conceptual feasibility of new or upgraded fully fledged user facilities (proposals considering just a component for research infrastructures are not targeted by this topic). Design studies lead to a 'conceptual design report' showing the maturity of the concept and forming the basis for identifying and constructing the next generation of Europe's and the world's leading research infrastructures.
