ERIES responds to the call INFRA-2021-SERV-01-07: Research infrastructure services advancing frontier knowledge with the overall objective of providing transnational access (TA) to advanced research infrastructures in the fields of structural, seismic, wind and geotechnical engineering. This project, together with the research infrastructure team assembled, provides access to leading experimental facilities that permit users to advance frontier knowledge and conduct curiosity-driven research towards: the reduction of losses and disruption due to these hazards; the management of their associated risk; and the development of innovative solutions to address them that will contribute to a greener and more sustainable society.

To this end, ERIES offers TA to the best European experimental facilities in each field, with new and unique infrastructures available for the first time in this programme, along with the provision of key infrastructure in Canada. It integrates past infrastructure projects’ successful results and implementation, such as SERIES and SERA, and expands access capabilities to new communities and disciplines not yet focused on.

It will provide authoritative input for diverse stakeholders, from Civil Protection agencies to the European seismic building code. It will help develop future standards for experimental techniques in earthquake, wind and geotechnical engineering. It will provide a platform from which European researchers can create innovative solutions and testbed applications of next-generation technologies.

With 13 partners from 8 countries, ERIES builds an essential element toward reducing losses, managing risk, and overall a greener and more sustainable engineering future in Europe.


  • ERIES General Assembly Meeting – 28-29th May 2024


  • Remaining transnational access availability

    Following the fourth call for transnational access applications, some research infrastructures still have some residual availability left to assign.   These are: AUTH – EUROSEISTEST and EUROPROTEAS, with more information available here UNIGE – Doppler Wind Lidar system – Leosphere WindCube 400S, with more information......

  • ERIES at the OECD Global Science Forum Workshop

    We are pleased to report that the ERIES Deputy Coordinator Gerard J. O’Reilly recently took part in the OECD Global Science Forum (GSF) “Workshop on Fostering Research Infrastructure Ecosystems for Addressing Complex Scientific and Societal Challenges.” This event, held on 28 February 2024 via Zoom,......

  • Canadian admission to Horizon Europe

    Given Canada’s recent entry to the Horizon Europe framework (see, user groups in Canada will also be allowed to participate as user group leaders in any future TA projects within ERIES, meaning that they are added to the “eligible countries” category....
