Advancing ERICs

The ERIC Forum Implementation Project is a Horizon2020 project which brings together 20 established European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERICs) and 3 ERICs in preparation to strengthen their coordination and enhance their collaborations. The strategic approach of the ERIC Forum will contribute to address critical challenges and develop best practices.

The major objectives of the ERIC Forum Implementation Project are to:

  • strengthen coordination and networking, reinforcing the informal ERIC network or its successor framework,
  • support the organisation of specific meetings, targeted thematic workshops focussing on shared challenges such as the development of internal procurement rules, harmonised reporting, VAT exemption practices, insurances and pensions policies and training of governance bodies representatives;
  • support ERICs in preparation, based on best practices;
  • support common communication and outreach activities and strengthen the external representation of ERICs as a stakeholder in consultations and other policy actions that could affect them.
