Needs inventory – inventory of needs for research infrastructure

The Council for Research Infrastructures, RFI, has decided how the proposals for new or upgraded infrastructure submitted in last year’s need inventory shall be prioritised. Just over 30 of the proposals we received in the inventory were placed in Category A.

99 proposals were received from researchers, higher education institutions and public authorities with research mandates. Of the just over 30 that were given the grade A, 14 were prioritised as A1, 3 as A2 and 16 as A3. Priority A1 means that the area is considered as having potential to become an infrastructure of national interest and is ready for a call, while A2 and A3 are also seen as infrastructure of national interest, but will currently not be included in the call. A description of the grading can be found at the end of the priority list.

We will present descriptions of all areas in Category A in the next Appendix to the Swedish Research Council’s Guide to infrastructure. The Appendix will be published later this autumn, together with a decision on the new areas that will be covered by the call in 2019. The fact that an area has been categorised as A1 is a prerequisite, but not a guarantee, for being included in the next call.

Infrastructure with ongoing grants that terminate in 2019 or 2020 will be able to apply for grants under the call, and are described in greater detail in the Appendix.

The next needs inventory is planned for autumn 2019.
