Interdisciplinary Cooperation in ESFRI Cluster Projects

EMPHASIS is developing targeted synergies with other ESFRI projects and has joined infrastructure clusters in the fields of  biomedical sciences CORBEL and environmental sciences ENVRIPlus. Further cooperation will be strengthened within the cluster projects EOSC-Life and RI-VIS.

The development of joint strategies is being promoted with ELIXIR and AnaEE .

Life Sciences


EMPHASIS is a project partner in the CORBEL cluster project with  13 research infrastructure from biomedical research area aiming at the  development of synergies to provide access to  cutting-edge biomedical research infrastructures. . Through a user-led approach CORBEL will develop the tools, services and data management required by cutting-edge European research projects. 

Environmental Sciences

EMPHASIS is an associated partner with 26 environmental and earth system research  infrastructures in the ENVRIplus cluster project that aims at developing integrated solutions to create a more coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures across Europe. ENVRIPlus will provide key tools and instruments for researchers to address grand challenges such as climate change.

EMPHASIS provides strategic advice on creating more a coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable clusters of environmental research infrastructures across Europe BEERI.

Data Sciences


Together with  13 other ESFRI projects from the "Health and Food" sector, EMPHASIS is developing a digital platform for cooperation across disciplinary boundaries in order to make data available and usable in accordance with FAIR principles. A joint project for the implemention of  the European Open Science Cloud EOSC-Life started in March 2019.


EMPHASIS has joined forces with 13 ESFRI projects to develop instruments that increase the visibility of European research infrastructures to broader scientific communities, industry and strategic partners in third countries. The project RI-VIS was launched in February 2019.

Networking with Industry

EMPHASIS is associate partner of the ENRIITC project that supports the establishment of strategic, cross-border partnerships between industry and research infrastructures. ENRIITC kicked off in January 2020 and will conclude in December 2022 and aims at building a permanent pan-European network of Industrial Liaison and Contact Officers and enable industry to become a full partner of research infrastructures whether it is as a user, a supplier, or a co-creator.
