Biological and Medical Sciences (BMS) projects
The BMS are a sub-set of the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap which deals with biomedical research.
ESFRI represents the Member States’ research ministries and the European Commission. ESFRI was established in April 2002 to produce the “European Roadmap on Research Infrastructures” reflecting a common mid- to long-term strategy for European Member States. ESFRI published its first roadmap in 2006. In the European Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, ESFRI has prioritized 10 research infrastructures in the areas of biological and medical sciences which are essential to realize to Europe’s potential to lead the world in innovative biological and medical sciences.
The coordinators of the BMS projects have met regularly to exchange best practice, to identify and discuss issues encountered by each RI initiative, and to work on identified bottlenecks which occurred on the way to implementation.
