CoPoRI, Communication and Policy development for Research Infrastructures in Europe, is a service tool for the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) to enhance communication and policy development for Research Infrastructures in Europe. It aims to support ESFRI in labor intensive activities e.g. enhancing ESFRIs communication skills, the organization of European workshops to analyse the socio-economic aspects of RIs and the setting up of "regional partner facilities". Beyond this CoPoRI will encourage and facilitate discussions and share best practices among ESFRI projects on issues of common interest. It will maximize the scientific return and optimize the use of resources and facilities by sharing relevant developments and results, whenever feasible. CoPoRI will support the outreach activities of the ESFRI projects.
