The European Commission organised a consultation for preparing future EU activities for integrating and opening national research infrastructures. The consultation was open from 15 July to 22 October 2012. The future EU activities for integrating and opening national research infrastructures correspond to the follow-up of the successful FP7 actions named "Integrating Activities", conditional to the approval of the European Commission proposal for the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020, by the EU Parliament and Council. The aim of these activities is to provide a wider and more efficient access to, and use of, the research infrastructures existing in EU Member States, Associated Countries, and at international level when appropriate.
