Maximising the use of research infrastructures in Europe

An on-line map to locate the facilities

The European Commission has been supporting access to effective research infrastructures for researchers all over Europe for more than a decade. This action has been instrumental in enhancing European researchers' access to the infrastructures they require to conduct their research, irrespective of the location of the facility. It is now possible to see on an on-line map the location of about 800 research infrastructures that open their doors to all researchers in Europe.

This map shows the location of the research infrastructures funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) that provide transnational access to researchers. 

These infrastructures are part of networks supported through Integrating Activity projects. The European Commission has supported more than 70 European research infrastructures networks under FP7 so far. 
The facilities are located in 42 countries. They cover a large range of scientific fields and are very diverse: from biobanks, marine stations, research aircrafts, to databanks, supercomputers and large-scale installations such as telescopes and synchrotrons facilities. The EU will continue to support the integration and opening of research infrastructures of pan-European interest under Horizon 2020. Data on these infrastructures will be added to the map.
