Finland recently underwent an evaluation of its research infrastructure and established a national infrastructure Roadmap for future strategic development. Instruct made a representation to the evaluation Committee in Helsinki and consequently Instruct is included on the Finnish Research Infrastructure Roadmap. Funding for the Instruct membership fee has been committed as part of the approval and the Roadmap will be published in Spring 2014. Finland hosts the specialist Instruct Centre for Virus Production in Helsinki and is currently bringing the national structural biology community together to support an Instruct National Affiliate Centre. Professors Sarah Butcher, Dennis Bamford and Rik Wierenga are leading this initiative.
