The International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI) is a global forum on Research Infrastructures, providing unique opportunities to share insights on this field from around the World.

The conference aims to reinforce international cooperation on globally-relevant Research Infrastructures in order to develop a global approach for prioritising, accessing, financing and governing research infrastructures.

Global research infrastructures play a vital role in addressing worldwide Science and Technology challenges. ICRI 2016 aims to analyse the "state of play" of Research Infrastructure, as well as new and emerging trends.

ICRI 2016 will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 3 to 5 October 2016. The conferences will be co-organised by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the European Commission.
