Roadmap for research infrastructures A pilot project of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Research infrastructures (RI) are an essential compo­ nent of every science and research system. In turn, efficient research infrastructures serve to advance basic scientific research and enable complex or even inter­ disciplinary scientific issues to be addressed. Further­ more, access to wide-ranging research infrastructures provides a basic framework that enables scientists to continue their training and fosters the transfer of technology and knowledge. Thus, the cornerstones are laid down for a high-performance and future-oriented science and research system. This increases Germany‘s attractiveness as a location of scientific and techno­ logical developments, even at international level. In particular, research infrastructures with cross-border partnerships attract a large number of scientists and young science professionals from Europe and all over the world. Therefore, investments in research infra­ structures invariably invest in the future of society.
