Core Facilities

The Core Facilities Working group was established in 2015 to create a forum for discussion of core facility-specific challenges. 
Current focus is on the following:

  • Sharing best practices and expertise in core facility management
  • Comparing indicators across institutes: financial, personnel, operations, research, training, and performance evaluation
  • Defining opportunities and procedures for capacity sharing between EU-LIFE institutes 
  • Collaboration on the level of training courses, grant applications, etc…
  • Data management issues (together with IT Working Group)
  • Participation in a dialogue to foster European funding opportunities for core facilities and core facility networks
  • Policy work on visibility of core facilities and small-medium scale research infrastructures
