3. European Commission Research Infrastructure consultation

We have been requested by the European Commission Research Infrastructures Unit
to draw the attention of the astronomy community to a consultation that they
are currently carrying out.

Specifically, they are asking the different scientific communities in the EU to
tell them what the needs are for support for existing research infrastructures. 

This consultation is open until the 22 October 2012. Further information
