The RI-VIS consortium has main membership from the life science 'research infrastructures' (RIs) where there is an urgent need to improve outreach and strategic partnerships. Partner RIs in other thematic groups ensure that outcomes are relevant to all.
RI-VIS targets communities and stakeholders with current and precise information and matches them with RIs to facilitate i) the development of new collaborations, ii) user accessibility, iii) collaborative and innovative actions, iv) funding opportunities, v) knowledge transfer and vi) training opportunities.
RI-VIS will make it easier to find out how RIs are organised and funded, where and how to access RI services, and where data is available. The communication framework will include several digital platforms to achieve broad reach and generate a communication toolkit to help others benefit from the experiences gained.
