WP8 partners and organizations of the LIST 11

 During April-June 2020 Work package 8 (WP8) successfully held 5 Kick-off web conferences with the participations of all  WP8 project partners and LIST 11. 

The presentations of the research infrastructures hosted by the organisations of the LIST 11 are presented here.

CREMLINplus kick-off Workshop
The CREMLINplus kick-off workshop was conducted on the 19-20 February 2020 at DESY in Hamburg.
The aim of the kick-off workshop was to present and explain the overall work plan and structure of the project as well as to clarify roles and align expectations. 
The EU-Russian megascience scientific-technical collaboration plans including status reports on 5 Russian megascience projects as well as the EU-Russian non- technical collaboration plans around LIST-11 facilities and megascience projects were presented. 
The non-technical collaboration in the project comprises a variety of coordination and support activities, carried out within WP8 “Access to Russian RI”, WP9 “Staff exchange and training for RI management”, WP10 “Joint long-term sustainability of RI”.
 picture questionApplication process and Instruments of Access to Russian research infrastructures?
1. Informal process: direct contact with management of the specific research infrastructure (via e-mail/phone) 0 
2. Formal Process (e.g. call for proposals/online registration/online procedure - Dedicated Users Portal)      
3.  Semi-formal process (e.g. registration online and application via e-mail)
4. Bilateral agreement for joint research partnerships 
5. Open Access
 picture question  Selection/Evaluation Process
1. Formal selection process
2. Not formally structured selection process
3. External Review Panel 
4. Internal review 
picture question Modes of Access to Russian research infrastructures (RU RIs)?
The process for selecting Users to Russian RIs services is based on access modes which regulate the conditions for selecting Users. Access modes are part of the internal access process of a specific research infrastructure. Access modes may differ as a function of the service requested, and may depend on possible contractual and legal obligations, capacities, resources, membership, etc.
The following access modes can be applied: 

Excellence-driven access: The access is competitive and requires a User selection based on the access process of the specific research infrastructure  and modalities: the request is evaluated through peer-review conducted by a review panel. Upon selection, Users get access to the facilities, resources or services available. This access mode is intended to enable collaborative research, knowledge transfer, training and best practice, and technological development efforts across geographical and disciplinary boundaries.

Excellence-driven access for international Users is applied through research partnership 

Market-driven access: access to research infrastructure services is defined through an agreement between research infrastructure and the User; the access may be tailored to the User needs and may lead to an access fee that may remain confidential. This access is considered Competitive access but may not necessarily involve a peer-review. 

Open access: means that the RI services are open to all Users.

picture question    Types of access to Russian research infrastructures (RU RIs)? 
Russian Research Infrastructures offer the following types of access: 
- Virtual access, which means access to Users provided through communication networks; the available services or resources can be simultaneously used by an unlimited number of Users and as a rule the Users are not selected. 
Examples for Virtual access: data, products, software, computing resources, other digital tools and services; digital tools for data and instrument operation.
- Physical access is “hands-on” access when Users physically visit an infrastructure/ facility/ equipment. 
Physical access means access to services offered by Russian research infrastructures. The available services or resources are not unlimited and in many cases a competitive process is required following a defined procedure and criteria for selection of Users. 
-Remote access is access to resources and services offered by Russian RIs without Users physically visiting the infrastructure/facility. Similar to Physical access, the services or resources are not unlimited and a competitive selection is required in some cases. 
Examples for Remote access: sample distribution, instrument calibration, analytical services, provision of specific digital tools and products, computing etc.
