An ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) operates and provides research infrastructure offerings, usually within a disciplinary scope, for researchers regardless of their national or institutional background. Apart from direct funding, an ERIC is built upon the national contributions from partner countries, notably cash and in-kind contributions.

This concept, the procedures, advantages and options for future enhancement are described in this paper from the German perspective focussing on the in-kinds. The paper is intended to support an informed discussion on the advancement of the in-kind contribution concept. The overall aim is to contribute to the efficiency and uptake of the ERICs’ research infrastructure offerings.


Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Funding Reference Number 01UG1910 A to I.
