Welcome to the website of the RAMIRI Project. Use this website to learn more about the RAMIRI project, and to apply for a place on RAMIRI training programmes in 2011 and 2012. We will also be posting news and views from the world of research infrastructures; uploading videos, papers and images from the conferences themselves, and fostering a network of people engaged in the complex legal, financial and governance issues involved in making these pioneering research facilities a reality, and a success

RAMIRI stands for Realising and Managing International Research Infrastructures. Pioneered by Professor John Wood of Imperial College London, the RAMIRI project aims to develop a training and networking resource for those involved in the planning and management of research infrastructures (RIs) of international importance, that are based within the European Union and the Associated States. 

RAMIRI is a European Commission-funded project under Framework Programme 7, and we gratefully acknowledge their support. RAMIRI is now in its second phase, and is scheduled to be in operation until late 2012.

RAMIRI 1 (formerly RAMIRI) ran from 2008-2010, under the auspices of the original RAMIRI Consortium of six major European research institutions. Details of the original RAMIRI Consortium are available here. In 2009 we organised a successful series of conferences in London, Grenoble and Hamburg. Details of the 2009 programme are still available here.

RAMIRI 2 will run until the end of October 2012, and will see the project evolve further in the direction of a training and networking environment. Applications for places on the 2012 programme are open until 31 December 2012. Successful applicants will be invited to attend two residential workshops in Prague and Trieste where they will have an unparalleled opportunity to learn from, ask questions of and network with experienced RI-management practitioners from around Europe and the world.
