The aim of the Nordic ESFRI day is to discuss opportunities and challenges for Nordic ESFRI cooperation, including e-infrastructures. The workshop will explore possible ways to strengthen regional research infrastructure (RI) cooperation in the Nordic countries and the role of NordForsk in this. The NordForsk Board has established a High-Level Advisory group on RI, mandated to give strategic advice to the Board regarding future priorities. The workshop will feed into the work of this advisory group. 

The workshop is aimed at Nordic ESFRI delegates, Nordic members in ESFRI Strategy groups, members on the NordForsk Board and of NordForsk’s High-Level RI Advisory Group as well as members of the steering groups of Nordic eScience Globalisation Initiative (NeGI) and Nordic eInfrastructure Cooperation (NeIC).

The workshop will introduce NordForsk’s activities in the field of research infrastructures, including presentations of recommendations from Nordic working groups on RIs and NeIC. Possibilities and challenges for Nordic ESFRI cooperation will be discussed in several parallel groups of different thematic fields of RIs. The outcome of the meeting should be suggestions of how NordForsk can facilitate or support Nordic ESFRI cooperation.

The workshop will be organised by NordForsk and participation is by invitation only.
