Description Core facilities are an integral part of the life science research landscape as providers of centralised access to?technological resources and expertise – such as equipment, databases, materials and organism collections, and other research-sustaining resources. The centralised operational model, spanning both physical and virtual sites, allows core facilities to pool finances and invest in expensive technologies and skilled staff with relevant expertise. In contrast to large Research Infrastructures (RIs) supported at the regional, national or international level, core facilities are primarily supported by their host institution who serve. By providing technological services and expertise, and through their support of research and the training of scientists, core facilities and their staff have a strong impact on the scientific performance and output of their host organisation. Their contribution to scientific research and innovation must thus be accordingly recognised.
