International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI)

Date & Time 19-21 October 2022
Location Brno, Czech Republic

Every two years since 2012, the International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) has hosted about 500 delegates, who discuss topics concerning research infrastructures on the international level. The venue alternates between the EU and third countries, and the event is organised jointly by the European Commission and the host country. The upcoming ICRI in 2022 will take place in Brno, Czech Republic.

The International Conference on Research Infrastructures aims to discuss the most challenging issues and pressing needs in research infrastructure policy-making related to both the post-pandemic recovery and the future development of research infrastructures. ICRI 2022 is a global forum encouraging cooperation and discussion on matters of international relevance for RIs.

This year, in addition to #ICRI2022, Brno will also be the venue for the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the father of genetics, G. J. Mendel.

Side and satellite events

The purpose of the Side and Satellite events is to reach out to a broader group of Research infrastructures stakeholders and actively engage them in the discussion on topics related to research infrastructures to share their visions and plans. While the Satellite events are reserved for two days before the formal start of the conference, are not bound by the venue, and count on the activity of typically Czech nodes of international research infrastructures, the Side events will take place on the days of the conference in Brno. Those interested in organising Side events will thus have the opportunity to be assisted by the conference organising team.

The application form for the Side and Satellite events must be filled in on the ICRI 2022 website, where the relevant guidelines can also be found. The call is open until 31 March.
