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 fields is necessary.
The objective of ENVRIplus is to provide common solutions to shared challenges for European environmental and earth system RIs in their efforts to deliver new services for science and society.
ENVRIPLUS is driven by 3 overarching goals: 1) favouring cross-fertilisation between RIs, 2) implementing innovative concepts and devices, and 3) facilitating research and innovation in the field of environment to an increasing number of users outside RIs.
