Coordinated by AnaEE-ERIC, the Horizon Europe project gathers more than 70 partners, and is granted of 15M€ for a duration of 5 years, in order to boost the research for a resilient and sustainable European agriculture system, and the agroecological transitions. The overarching mission of AgroServ is to support research and innovation by providing customised and integrated RI services in view of achieving a sustainable and resilient agriculture and supporting agroecological transitions.
AgroServ, thanks to a large consortium of recognized European Research Infrastructures, features a vast offer of services at all scales, from the molecule, to the organism, to the ecosystem, and to the society. AgroServ goes beyond the state-of-the-art because allows users access, for the first time, to make use of a consistent, integrated, and customized offer of services from several RIs spanning all relevant disciplines: they bring together several types of expertise, disciplines and technologies, integrating competences from chemists, biologists, agronomists, ecologists, bioengineers, analysts, sociologists, economists.
The transdisciplinary offer of services will have a high impact on the future of the food system, preserving biodiversity and reducing the impact of agriculture on climate. The consortium will work closely with partners from the society, farmers, industry, citizens and policy makers, through living labs and towards the establishment of evidence-based policy, and codeveloped practices in agriculture.

ENVRI-FAIR is the connection of the Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The overarching goal is that at the end of the project, all participating Research Infrastructures have built a set of FAIR data services which enhances the efficiency and productivity of researchers, supports innovation, enables data- and knowledge-based decisions and connects the ENVRI Cluster to the EOSC.
This goal is reached by:
- Well defined community policies and standards on all steps of the data life cycle, aligned with the wider European policies, as well as with international developments;
- Each participating Research Infrastructure will have sustainable, transparent and auditable data services, for each step of data life cycle, compliant to the FAIR principles;
- The focus of the work is on the implementation of prototypes for testing pre-production services at each Research Infrastructure; the catalogue of prepared services is defined for each Research Infrastructures independently, depending on the maturity of the involved Research Infrastructures;
- The complete set of thematic data services and tools provided by the ENVRI cluster is exposed under the EOSC catalogue of services via EOSC-hub.

The ENRIITC [ɪnˈrɪʧ] project aims to build a permanent pan-European network of Industrial Liaison and Contact Officers (ILOs and ICOs) and enable industry to become a full partner of research infrastructures whether it is as a user, a supplier, or a co-creator. In other words, ENRIITC supports the establishment of strategic, cross-border partnerships between industry and research infrastructures.
The primary objectives of ENRIITC are:
- Establish a sustainable European network of ILOs and ICOs which enables mutual learning
- Map collaboration potential between research infrastructures and industry,
- Develop and refine strategies and best practices to foster these collaborations,
- Raise awareness among industry for collaboration opportunities at research infrastructures, and demonstrate impact.
ENRIITC brings together 11 Partners and more than 60 Associates from around Europe. The network members represent diverse scientific areas, industrial sectors and geographical regions. ENRIITC is inclusive and welcomes new members.
