Projects that are directly supporting the ENVRI community


ENVRI-FAIR is the connection of the Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

The overarching goal is that at the end of the project, all participating Research Infrastructures have built a set of FAIR data services which enhances the efficiency and productivity of researchers, supports innovation, enables data- and knowledge-based decisions and connects the ENVRI Cluster to the EOSC.

Other projects supporting the ENVRI Research infrastructures and/or facilitating the collaboration among environmental research infrastructures


During the past years, the European Commission (EC) and the ERICs met twice a year to address and discuss issues in the implementation of the ERIC regulation. ERICs exchanged during these meetings commonly shared challenges in fields ranging from human resources management, procurement, VAT and excises exemption implementation, in-kind contributions, as well as the socio-economic impact of ERICs, performance monitoring and more.

Aware of the constant enlargement of the community, the existing ERICs formed in 2017 the ERIC Forum in order to further strengthen the coordination among ERICs and interact effectively with the EC to achieve the full implementation of the ERIC regulation.


ATMO-ACCESS is the organized response of distributed atmospheric research facilities for developing a pilot for a new model of Integrating Activities. The project will deliver a series of recommendations for establishing a comprehensive and sustainable framework for access to distributed atmospheric Research Infrastructures (RI), ensuring integrated access to and optimised use of the services they provide. ACTRIS, IAGOS and ICOS research infrastructures are collaborating in this project.


RI-VIS is a Horizon 2020 funded project to increase the visibility of European research infrastructures (RIs) to new communities in Europe and beyond.

We have a consortium of 13 partners from 12 Research Infrastructures working in the fields of biomedical sciences, social sciences and environmental sciences. We also have expert advisors from the Physics sector, and from e-infrastructure.


RICH, the European Network of National Contact Points (NCPs) for Research Infrastructures in Horizon 2020, facilitates transnational cooperation between NCPs, promotes the effective implementation of the RI programme, supports transnational and virtual access to Research Infrastructures and highlights the opportunities offered by Research Infrastructures – at the European and international level.
