The International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) brings together policy experts, facility managers, leading researchers and a variety of other stakeholders to discuss challenges and emerging trends for research infrastructures around the world.

ICRI 2020 is supported with funding from the European Union and is hosted by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), in partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and with additional support from the National Research Council of Canada.

Goals

The goals for this year’s conference are to:

  • develop a more structured approach to international collaboration
  • identify lessons learned and best practices in the development and use of research infrastructures
  • discover areas of common interest, and
  • build connections between stakeholders and decision makers across the globe.

Participants

This invitation-only event brings together experts in the development, financing and exploitation of research infrastructures across all disciplines and areas of research to discuss how to best enable excellent research, technology development and innovation in all sectors of society.

A message from your ICRI 2020 host

We look forward to welcoming you to Ottawa and to ICRI 2020! There is a buzz of excitement and optimism in the Canadian research community leading up to this event, which is supported with funding from the European Union. This sense of anticipation extends through our funding agencies, and the entire research community.

We plan to make our welcome to you as large as our country is wide and so warm that you will not even notice the tiny hint of cool in the air that presages the lovely fall foliage.

Research is a critical tool to strengthening our communities and addressing some of the most pressing transnational issues of our time. Climate change, food security, human health and poverty are among the major themes requiring solutions. If the problems are global, so too are the solutions.

Within our own countries we have national research labs, and others located in universities, colleges, hospitals and industry. We can learn from best practices as we use our resources wisely.

We look forward to a conference that is a veritable greenhouse for creative ideas for collaboration and innovative solutions to critical issues.
