  "abstract": "<p>In the EC&rsquo;s Communication A new ERA for Research and Innovation,1 The Commission proposes</p>\n\n<p>that Member States reinforce their commitment to shared policies and principles, drawing on the</p>\n\n<p>20 years of the ERA, by adopting a Pact for Research and Innovation (Pact) . In the field of</p>\n\n<p>Research Infrastructures (RIs) , a relevant contribution to such a Pact could be the Charter for</p>\n\n<p>Access to Research Infrastructures (Charter) . Since the Pact preparation is planned for the first</p>\n\n<p>half of 2021, the present document reviews its applicability and raises the potential need for a</p>\n\n<p>revision. It is considered that the Charter needs to cover a vast community of research</p>\n\n<p>infrastructures, hence its rather general; however, this needs to be weighed against its usability.</p>\n\n<p>For example, the current lack of some key definitions, such as scientific excellence, peer review,</p>\n\n<p>and restricted access, makes it possible for many different practices to qualify as excellence-based</p>\n\n<p>mode, defying the Charter&#39;s purpose.</p>",
