ACCELERATE - ACCELERATing Europeís Leading Research Infrastructures

ACCELERATE is a Horizon 2020 project, supporting the long-term sustainability of large scale research infrastructures (RIs) through the development of policies and legal and administrative tools for a more effective management and operation of RIs, with a special focus on ERICs and CERIC in particular.
To help secure RIsí sustainability, relevance and effectiveness, the project develops frameworks to improve the offer of tailored services to private and public entities, ensuring outreach to new scientific and industrial communities worldwide and defining common protocols for monitoring and assessing RIsí socio-economic impact. Finally, a major focus on capacity building will develop current and future RIsí staff competences. read more
