Brno will host the leading event in the field of research infrastructures
In October 2022, Brno will host a gathering of leaders in the field of research infrastructures – their users, policymakers, and stakeholders. The South Moravian metropolis will host the International Conference on Research Infrastructures, a major worldwide event, a global forum encouraging cooperation and discussions on the importance of research infrastructures. The event will also offer an accompanying programme and will be open to the broader public for the first time in its history.
The programme will also include several satellite events and side events as well as site visits to research infrastructures located in Brno. And as the organisers also aim to reach out to the broader public, a new feature of the conference will be the so-called citizen programme prepared in cooperation with local institutions such as Brno Observatory or VIDA! Science Centre. Last but not least, as a back-to-back event, the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) meeting will take place in Brno in the same week.
The conference will be held under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic, the Masaryk University, and the Central European Institute of Technology in Brno. The organisers will closely collaborate with the European Commission´s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, financially contributing to the event’s organisation via the 9th EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon Europe.
