RISCAPE: e-infrastructure landscape

Roberta Piscitelli gives an overview of the project

The RISCAPE project is a three-year project set up to provide an international landscape analysis report on the position and complementarities of the major European research infrastructures. RISCAPE builds on the European Research Infrastructures (RIs) in the ESFRI landscape report (2016) and on the analysis done or currently underway in the H2020 cluster projects.

A landscape analysis involves identifying the key players in a field, sector or geography and classifying them by characteristics (e.g., type of organisation, target beneficiary). This helps nonprofits to understand the broader context in which they are operating and design their strategy accordingly to maximise their impact.

EGI’s role will be to identify international e-Infrastructures in different geographical areas, to examine their common technical features and the areas of societal challenges that they focus on.

The EGI team will analyse the e-Infrastructures via interviews and desk research. The analysis will result in the identification of mechanisms for cooperation including the use of international agreements.
