    Introduction

    Research infrastructures are facilities, resources and services that are used by the research

    communities to conduct research and foster innovation in their fields. Where relevant, they

    may be used beyond research, e.g. for education or public services. They include: major

    scientific equipment (or sets of instruments); knowledge-based resources such as collections,

    archives or scientific data; e-infrastructures, such as data and computing systems and

    communication networks; and any other infrastructure of a unique nature essential to achieve

    excellence in research and innovation. Such infrastructures may be 'single-sited', virtual or

    'distributed'.

    Research infrastructures play an increasing role in the advancement of knowledge and

    technology and their exploitation. By offering high quality research services to users from

    different countries, by attracting young people to science and by networking facilities,

    research infrastructures help to structure the scientific community and play a key role in the

    construction of an efficient research and innovation environment. Because of their ability to

    assemble a critical mass of people, knowledge and investment, they contribute to national,

    regional and European economic development. Research infrastructures are also key in

    helping Europe to lead a global movement towards open, interconnected, data-driven and

    computer-intensive science and engineering. e-Infrastructures will make every European

    researcher digital, increasing creativity and efficiency of research and bridging the divide

    between developed and less developed regions.

    The EU framework programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, gives high

    importance to promoting world-class research infrastructures, in a fair, transparent and open

    way facilitating researcher's access to the infrastructures they need, to further developing and

    deploying e-infrastructures, and fostering the innovation potential of research infrastructures

    with a focus on instrumentation and on reinforcing international cooperation with strategic

    third country partners. Research infrastructures provide research opportunities and services to

    researchers in many areas also addressed by other Parts of Horizon 2020 within "Societal

    Challenges", "Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies" (LEIT), and Excellent

    Science. This is also reflected in the close links between several of the topics in Research

    Infrastructures and certain Focus Areas. In this way, Research Infrastructures also contributes

    to other cross-cutting objectives of Horizon 2020, such as climate action and sustainable

    development, biodiversity, and social sciences and humanities. Furthermore, production-level

    e-infrastructures are able to serve the computing and data needs of any project in the

    framework programme fostering economies of scale in the use of ICT systems by projects

    supported by Horizon 2020.

    The Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2016-2017 contributes to the political priorities of

    the new Commissions Agenda, in particular to maximise its support in strengthening

    Europes global competitiveness, the creation of new and sustainable jobs and the promotion

    of growth.
