Summary of international research infrastructures
Nearly HUF 3.2 billion (EUR 10.5 million) in the budget of the NRDI Office and the NRDI Fund is allocated to the costs of accessing foreign research infrastructures in 2016.
Biobanking and Biomolecular Research Infrastructure (BBMRI-ERIC)
BBMRI-ERIC aims to promote the development of new, effective therapeutic treatments by aligning the needs and opportunities of researchers, the industry and patients in need of treatment through related biomedical research.
Central European Research Infrastructure Consortium (CERIC-ERIC)
The Consortium aims to provide external researchers with access to analytical, structural and imaging studies using synchrotron, neutron beam and other microscopic probes, and to the necessary material modification techniques, in the fields of nanotechnology, environment, materials science, life sciences and cultural heritage.
Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure (CLARIN ERIC)
The infrastructure provides advanced digital language resources and tools primarily for scholars and social scientists.
Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA ERIC)
Virtual research infrastructure focusing on collecting, archiving, distributing and increasing the searchability of social sciences databases.
European Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (ECRIN-ERIC)
Organisation that coordinates scientific partners and networks across Europe to facilitate multinational clinical research.
European Life-sciences Infrastructure for Biological Information (ELIXIR)
Connects life sciences databases. Its main objective is to create, develop and ensure access to existing (and future) sources of biological data.
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)
European intergovernmental research organisation dealing with life sciences (genetics and molecular biology), which plays a leading role in the integration of European life science research.
European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)
The world's largest particle physics laboratory, which examines the building blocks and operation of the universe by using particle accelerators and detectors. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is now the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.
European Research Infrastructure for Imaging Technologies in Biological and Medical Sciences (EuBI-ERIC)
Provides open physical access to a wide range of world-class biological and biomedical imaging technologies for researchers in life sciences.
European Social Survey (ESS ERIC)
The organisation biannually collects international comparative data about the demographic and social conditions of European societies, political and public preferences of citizens, and changes in social attitudes and action-guiding values.
European Spallation Source (ESS)
One of the largest ongoing investment in research infrastructure in the EU, which aspires to global leadership in neutron research. It will receive a major role in biotechnology and energy research, as well as in the fields of materials science and ICT.
European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF)
Special X-ray source which is fundamentally important for determining the atomic structure, electronic structure and magnetic properties of materials. It also offers measurement services in almost all fields of science.
European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility (European XFEL)
Following full commissioning, the international research infrastructure is going to be Europe’s first and the world’s largest hard X-ray free-electron laser.
Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS ERIC)
ICOS ERIC is the main European research organisation for climate and atmosphere research.
International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB)
The autonomous intergovernmental organisation aims to enable less industrialised countries to take advantage of the latest advances in biotechnology.
International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER)
Its EU/EURATOM membership enables Hungary to take part in the large-scale research infrastructure cooperation aimed at fusion energy experiments producing marketable results.
Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE ERIC)
The multi-country, multi-disciplinary research network conducts surveys on the health and social implications of aging, as well as the potential public policy responses to these issues in a European comparison.
