Who are the stakeholders in CatRIS?

Service Providers » Any European research infrastructure (RI), core facility (CF) and shared scientific resource (SSR) service provider public or private. They are responsible for facilities and resources, therefore concerned with providing, managing and making visible best quality and competitive services to their respective community of users while ensuring the funding for the operations and necessary upgrades of their RIs

Researchers & Service users from Academia and Industry » Researchers of any scientific field from academia and industry that access and use expert services offered by the RIs in order to perform their research are in demand for highest-quality facilities that are readily accessible. Service users include businesses and the private sector that seek opportunities to develop their activities either through engaging in R&D projects with the RIs or by proposing to develop specific research services, equipment or products.

Policy Makers and Funders » National and international funders and policy-makers that want to optimize the allocation of resources in order to fulfil policy objectives (at European, national, regional and local-institutional levels). As such they require specific insights into the capacity, impact and performance of RIs so as to be able to respond to the needs of their constituents and specific budgetary constraints.
