LS RI Strategy Group

Educating a new generation of life scientists, here at EMPHASIS

The Life Sciences Strategy Board is the emergent body from the Biomedical Sciences Research Infrastructure Group, formed as part of the CORBEL Cluster project. The original objective was to integrate the CORBEL project outcomes with a long-term strategy for the research infrastructures.

The Life Sciences Research Infrastructure (LS RI) group aims to continue to represent its stakeholders and users in the strategic planning of the European RI ecosystem, namely by providing input directly and through the ERIC-Forum to ESFRI and the ERIC Committee. The LSRI will work to improve integration and interconnectedness of their services and activities and keenly engage with RIs in other thematic domains.

Collectively we support a fully integrated RI universe that will underpin the ambitions of the European Research Area (ERA).
