European Commission Puts Research Infrastructures Back on the Map

The European Commission (EC) is funding a project that will continue the development of the MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape) portal and database. The initial phase of MERIL began in 2010, when its goal was to build an up-to-date database of European research infrastructures in the sciences.

MERIL-2, the current 3-year phase, has an expanded team that “will provide the means for making informed assessments and decisions about the research infrastructure landscape in Europe, and to encourage accessibility, new partnerships and collaborations within the scientific community,” according to CORDIS, the EC’s Community Research and Development Information Service. MERIL-2 plans to cover more research structures and provide more accurate information on them. “The usability of the portal is also being developed through improved functionality and standardised data sets, which it is hoped will enable MERIL to become a hub for European research infrastructure information, resources and networking.”

For more information, read the press release.
