Invitation letter from Miroslaw Miller, President of Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+ Ltd.
On behalf of Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+ I have the pleasure to invite you to the Third International Conference "European Research Infrastructures for Innovation and Development ERIFID 2011", which will take place on the 1st and 2nd of December 2011 in Wroclaw, Poland.
European Union has been investing increasing resources in the creation and development of modern research centres regarding them as a measure to achieve the goals set by the Lisbon strategy. The goal of the conference is to present the concept and the policy for supporting large R&D infrastructures and research in Europe. The organizers’ aim is to create an international forum for exchanging experiences and showing good practices in management and financing such R&D centres. We wish to follow the example of leading research organizations in Europe on how to organize open laboratories and to integrate the research infrastructure on a regional level.
The conference will also address barriers and opportunities for the development of spin-off companies and present a benchmarking analysis of domestic and European needs in the field of modern technologies. The speakers and participants at the conference are representatives of European, national and local authorities as well as representatives of research centres from Poland and all over the world."
