Interdisciplinary cooperation in ESFRI cluster projects

Emphasis develops 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 (starting in March 2019) and RI-VIS (starting in February 2019).

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 assiciated partner with 26 environmental and earth system research  infrastructures in 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 the researchers to address grand challenges such as climate change.

EMPHASIS provides strategic advice on creating more a coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable cluster 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 prooject for the implemention of  the European Open Science Cloud called EOSC-Life was approved and will start presumably in March 2019.


Together with 13 ESFRI projects EMPHASIS will develop instruments to increase the visibility of European research infrastructures to broader scientific communities, industry and strategic partners in third countries. A joint prooject called RI-VIS was approved and will start in early 2019.
