Hungary includes E-RIHS in the national roadmap of Research Infrastructures
A key element to international research collaborations is research infrastructures,
thus the Hungarian research community can gain significant international embeddedness through the connections. Hungary will join Biobanking and BioMolecular Resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI ERIC) and the European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science (E-RIHS) as two more international research infrastructures in its national RI roadmap.
In connection with the international preparations for the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap 2021, the NRDI Office launched a nationwide survey at the end of 2019 to find out which research communities would need to join the research infrastructures included in the current ESFRI Roadmap 2018. The proposals received for the two-stage questionnaire survey were presented by representatives of the research communities at the July 2020 meeting of the National Research Infrastructure Committee.
In the course of the evaluation, the Commission proposed the accessions to the Minister of Innovation and Technology on the basis of three main criteria,
considering the professional, financial and research resources. Based on the ministerial decision, Hungary will join these two more international research infrastructures as full members.
