Frequently Asked Questions
We are discussing a focused regional action in one part of Europe to accelerate the HPC uptake and were wondering whether INFRAIA-1-2014/2015 would be a possible instrument for this.

While this question refers to a specific area under INFRAIA-1-2014/2015, similar questions may arise for other areas under the same call. The answer applies analogously there.
This call aims to address the following specific challenge: “European researchers need effective and convenient access to the best research infrastructures in order to conduct research for the advancement of knowledge and technology. The aim of this action is to bring together, integrate on European scale, and open up key national and regional research infrastructures to all European researchers, from both academia and industry, ensuring their optimal use and joint development.”
Furthermore “As the scope of an integrating activity is to ensure coordination and integration between all the key European infrastructures in a given field and to avoid duplication of effort, at most one proposal per area is expected to be funded.”
In this context, experts will be asked in particular to assess and compare between proposals the expected impact as described in the WP for the INFRAIA topic. Depending on the area and the level of integration of the concerned RIs in the different regions, the experts might be convinced that specific efforts in a given region are required. However the structuring impact on the ERA remains essential therefore the European scale is essential as well.
The area you are mentioning is for an advanced community, therefore the strongest impact for these communities will be expected typically to arise from focusing on widening trans-national and virtual access provision and a focus on innovation aspects.
