ENVRI-FAIR brings together the current ESFRI Roadmap Research Infrastructures and Landmarks from the cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures, organised in the ENVRI community. Read about the different Research Infrastructure here.

The ENVRI-FAIR Research Infrastructures are represented in the Consortium either by ERICs (European Research Infrastructure Consortiums) or by the different organisation supporting the development of its Research Infrastructure.

Main tasks in the project: FZJ coordinates the ENVRI-FAIR project and hosts the coordination and management team of the project in Juelich. FZJ contributes significantly to WP8 Implementation Atmospheric Subdomain and to the transversal work packages WP 4, 5, and 6.

Main tasks in the project:
CNRS contributes to the transversal work packages WP 3 as Leader, and to WP5 and WP7. CNRS contributes significantly to WP8 Implementation Atmospheric Subdomain as Co-leader and to WP10 Implementation Solid Earth Subdomain. More specifically,

  • LA and OMP co-lead WP8, participate to WP3 and WP5 (IAGOS)
  • IGE will be specifically involved in WP3 (co-lead)
  • ICARE participates to WP5 and WP8 (ACTRIS)
  • IPSL and LISA participates to WP8 (ACTRIS)
  • IPGP participate to WP10 (EPOS)

ICOS ERIC contributes significantly to the project, i.p. to following WPs:
WP 2 Communication tools and strategies (lead), WP 4 FAIR Policy Development (co-lead), WP 5 Community standards and catalogue of services (lead), WP 6 Training and capacity building (ICOS lead through Lund University), WP 8 Implementation Atmospheric Subdomain, WP 9 Implementation Marine Subdomain, WP 11 Implementation Biodiversity / Ecosystem Subdomain (ICOS co-lead through CMCC).

ICOS leads WP5 through the CP Director and WP6 through Margareta Hellström from ULUND. ULUND contributes its expertise in working FAIR data service solutions to WP5 and WP7. Because CP is involved in all ICOS domains and acts as central data center, ULUND will contribute to all relevant subdomain work packages: WP8, WP10 and WP11.

Co-leader of WP11 on the Implementation in the sudomain Biodiversity / Ecosystems.

UiB is responsible for integrating the marine data of the RI ICOS and other relevant data covering the EOV Inorganic Carbon within WP9. UiB also contributed to the shared tasks within WP9 working towards interoperability.


The Euro-Argo ERIC coordinates with EMSO-ERIC the Marine Workpackage WP9 which objective is to enhance FAIRness of the ESFRI marine Research Infrastructure . The Euro-Argo ERIC will work closely with IFREMER and UKRI(BODC) which operate the Argo Data Centers in Europe. It will also contribute to the BEERI within the WP3 and to transverse WP4-5-6 as representative of the Euro-Argo ERIC.

Ifremer coordinates the Marine domain infrastructures for ENVRI FAIR through WP9 coordination. Ifremer is the major contributor to Euro-Argo Research Infrastructure in term of data management. Ifremer is involved in EMSO data management activities. Ifremer is also a major contributor to SeaDataNet
infrastructure (the network of European National Ocean Data Centres).


LifeWatch ERIC is coordinating WP 11on the implementation in the subdomain Biodiversity / Ecosystems and co-coordinating WP 6 on training.

ACTRIS through NILU as a partner will lead WP8 “Implementation ATMOSPHERIC Subdomain.” NILU will also contribute to “WP5: Common requirements and testbed for (meta)data services, community standards and cataloguing” and “WP7: Common Implementation and support”

CNR co-leads the WP5 and contribute significantly to the implementation work packages WP8 Atmosphere, WP10 Solid Earth and WP11 Biodiversity / Ecosystems.

FMI will be involved in the majority of WP3 tasks. Sanna Sorvari will co-lead WP3 (Collaboration and strategy for the community development and its internationalization) together with Paolo Laj (CNRS). Anca Hienola will coordinate Tasks 3.1 (Cluster engagement and cohesion (BEERi)).

UHEL brings expertise of RI management, open science issues and legal specifics of research infrastructures. The main contributions are in WP3 on strategic level RI development and landscape and on cluster collaboration with other INFRAEOSC-4 funded projects, on WP4 (co-lead) on the policy development, external project interaction and legal and IPR issues on ENVRI service policies.

INGV is co-coordinating the implementation work for the Solid Earth subdomain (WP10) and WP7 on Common Implementation and Support actions and contributes significantly to WP5 on community standards.


UKRI-BGS will co-lead WP4, WP5 and WP10 and make a significant contribution to the aspects of FAIR Data Policies (WP4) and the solid Earth subdomain implementation activities (WP10). UKRI-BGS will also participate in the communication and dissemination tasks (WP2)


BRGM will coordinate the implementation of FAIR elements within the EPOS ICS-C,so that subdomains will interact with EOSC through it.
