Research infrastructures

The Platform MAP helds since 2011 a Round Table International chaired by Prof. Hans Rudolf Ott (ETHZ). It is a forum for the exchange of information between representatives of forstering organizations (SERI, SNSF, SCNAT, swissuniversities) and scientists active in financially intensive research infrastructures, with the aim of prioritizing the community needs through a roadmap process.

  • The Round Table International started with the discussion of infrastructures in the field of particle physics and astroparticle physics (CHIPP).
  • As of 2013, there are two meetings a year, and astronomy (SCFA) was included in connection with the new SNSF FLARE program.
  • Since November 2016, it is designated as the Round Table "Swiss Representation International Organizational Research Infrastructures" (RoTIORI) with an extension to other scientific areas where there is a participation in international research infrastructures, in particular in material physics with X-rays & neutrons, molecular biology, nuclear fusion, and laser physics.
