INFO

Continuation of Plenary Sessions 2 and 4 on Research Infrastructures Contributing to Grand Societal Challenges, this time in the environment of RIs. What are the remedies that RIs can offer? The aim of this plenary session is to show, through case studies, how research infrastructures have contributed to finding solutions to burning issues, specifically related to the data and digitalisation of society, and how they can be useful in the future.

Plenaries and Parallel Sessions (PS) will focus on how research infrastructures contribute to addressing Grand Societal Challenges:  
I. COVID-19 and pandemics of infectious diseases  
II. Environment, climate change and mitigation
III. Data and digitalisation of society
These sessions aim to explore ways of convergence of research infrastructure policy-making with policy-making in other sectoral areas, such as industry, energy, environment, agriculture, health, social affairs or security, where research infrastructures essentially contribute to knowledge-based solutions for significant societal and economic challenges.
