Building the pan-European infrastructure: national initiatives. Since the beginning of the shaping of the IPERION CH proposal, several national research infrastructure initiatives supporting the IPERION CH core mission have started to be implemented. National projects reinforce the commitment of the IPERION CH community to the creation of a pan-European RI. Currently, three national RIs sharing the objectives of IPERION CH are active in Italy, Portugal and Greece:
- IPERION CH.it coordinated by CNR
- IPERION CH.pt led by the University of Évora
- IPERION CH.gr coordinated by FORTH.
The growing network of national initiatives allows IPERION CH to expect, through its membership, smart use of the European Structural and Investment Funds and to envisage their use as complementary funds for the operational lifespan of the RI.
