The second International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI 2014) held from 2-4 April 2014 aimed to highlight how global research infrastructures can respond to the challenges that the world is facing today, what lessons have been learned from the past, and what the priorities and directions are for the future.
Several recommendations on key research infrastructure issues will result from the conference deliberations. These include:
- potential international cooperation on research infrastructures
- coordinated support and strengthening of existing initiatives
- underlining possible needs for additional efforts
- developing a vision of open science.
The conference attracted approximately 600 international participants during the three days. It included an exhibition of demonstrations and videos of international research infrastructure projects.
