The Partners

The founding members of CERIC-ERIC are Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.

Member states appoint one Representing Entity each, which has the capacity to support the scientific and technical operation of CERIC-ERIC through a Partner Facility, complementary to all others in an overall multi-technique infrastructure. The Partner Facilities are the entry points and S&T outreach in the respective countries, while the Consortium activities and the access of users are coordinated through the statutory seat in Trieste, Italy.

An International Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (ISTAC), composed of independent experts, periodically evaluates the Partner Facilities and the quality of the services and instruments provided by CERIC.
