Supporting policy makers during roadmapping processes through data analysis on the European research infrastructure landscape.
Did you know that MERIL was originally conceived as a policy tool? In fact, MERIL stands as the most comprehensive source of information on RIs across Europe.
The database holds valuable information for funders and policy-makers interested in the European research infrastructure landscape. Our data includes access information, RI services and equipment, funding, and other key indicators – all of which help map impact metrics for research infrastructures.
In addition, the MERIL team can support roadmapping processes with tailored data analysis and statistical reports on-demand.
The portal also features a powerful visualisation tool that filters MERIL data through thematic and geographical categories to produce a much-needed comparative and international perspective on the RI landscape – all at a glance.
MERIL’s standardised database guarantees the interoperability of its data, and its classification system has been adopted by several national RI databases, including Austria, Germany, and Korea.
