Medical Research Infrastructures & Users – feedback on activities and services


The Horizon 2020 funded project CORBEL aims to establish a collaborative and sustained framework of shared services between the ESFRI Biological & Medical Research Infrastructures (RIs).

A questionnaire was created to collect the needs and expectations of medical research communities and overall users of RIs. The responses have been collected and analysed and will be used as input to gather recommendations for continuous improvement and development of new, transversal services.

The main findings of the survey are:

1) Overall, RIs are acknowledged as scientific service providers. The added value for users in collaborating with RIs was greatly appreciated by most of the survey participants

2) The scientific coverage and the quality of services provided by RIs were found consistent with the expectations and the needs of the medical research community

3) The access procedures were found to be rather efficient and the websites were evaluated as quite informative

4) Suggestions were made to improve the dissemination of information related to services available as well as the visibility of RIs both at national and international level
