May 26, 2011
The “work programme” of ESFRI for the coming years and also the European Roadmap illustrating 48 pan-European Research Infrastructures or major upgrades, corresponding to the needs of EU research communities in the next 10 to 20 years was handed over on 3 May to the European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Máire GEOGHEGAN-QUINN.
