Abstract:
ENVRIplus is a Horizon 2020 project bringing together Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures (RIs), projects and networks together with technical specialist partners to create a more coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable cluster of Environmental RIs across Europe.Environmental RIs provide key tools and instruments for the researchers to address specific challenges within their own scientific fields. However, to tackle the grand challenges facing human society (for example climate change, extreme events, loss of biodiversity, etc.), scientific collaboration across the traditional fields is necessary.  Collaboration within the ENVRIplus will enable the multidisciplinary Earth system science across the traditional scientific fields, which is so important in order to address today’s global challenges. The cooperation will make the RIs’ products and solutions easier to use, improving their innovation potential and cost/benefit ratio. Collaboration is the only way forward to address the Global Changes facing today’s society.
