Financing Opportunity: Research Infrastructure Services


Programme: Horizon Europe Framework Programme (HORIZON)

Call: Research infrastructure services to support health research, accelerate the green and digital transformation, and advance frontier knowledge (2023) (HORIZON-INFRA-2023-SERV-01)

Type of action: HORIZON-RIA HORIZON Research and Innovation Actions

Deadline date: 09 March 2023 17:00:00 Brussels time

Legal entities from Greece, Romania, Türkiye and Ukraine, among other countries, are eligible applicants.

The maximum Horizon Europe funding rate for Research and innovation actions is 100%.

This topic aims at providing trans-national access (on-site or remote) and/or virtual access to integrated and customised RI services for challenge-driven research and innovation in several areas (including aquaculture), offered by a wide range of complementary and interdisciplinary top level research infrastructures.

Access also includes ad hoc users’ training and scientific and technical support. Training courses for using the infrastructures may also be supported. Training courses and ad hoc users’ training will prepare the new generations of researchers to properly exploit leading-edge RIs, and should provide them with appropriate skills for data stewardship.

Activities to facilitate and integrate the access procedures, to further develop the remote or virtual provision of services and to improve, customise and harmonise the services the infrastructures will also be supported, including for better serving the needs of open EU industrial research and innovation.

While the main goal of this topic is access provision to existing services, limited development of new services, relevant to the challenges, can also be supported, including joint/cross-RI services, provided that the resulting services are opened and offered already under the actions (short term R&D) and that the long term sustainability of such services is ensured by the participant RIs.

Project results are expected to contribute to all the following expected outcomes:

For all areas:

  • provision of innovative, customised and efficient RI services enhancing and increasing society’s long-term and consistent problem-solving capacity and evidence-based policy making;

For RI services for sustainable aquaculture, fisheries and blue economy

  • enabling/facilitating R&I for sustainable aquaculture, fisheries and the blue economy;
  • enhanced and further integrated RI capacities in support of the Common Fisheries Policy, the Farm to Fork Strategy, the sustainable blue economy and the European Green Deal.

Proposals for RI services for sustainable aquaculture, fisheries and blue economy should provide access to a wide portfolio of complementary research infrastructures and their services needed to address the scientific challenges in support of the Common Fisheries Policy, the Farm to Fork Strategy and the Sustainable Blue Economy Strategy. Building on past integration of access to facilities such as inland and marine aquaculture experimental platforms, marine biological resources and analytical platforms, relevant marine data and observing platforms, proposals should further integrate, customise or combine services and adapt modalities of access to facilitate interdisciplinary research addressing EU priorities.

Applications must be submitted electronically via the Funding & Tenders Portal electronic submission system (accessible via the topic page in the Search Funding & Tenders section).
