About the GSO

The GSO was established, following the G8 Science Ministers' meeting held in June 2008, to explore international cooperation on Global Research Infrastructures. The GSO has been active since 2011, and has developed a framework for the establishment of Global Research Infrastructures (GRI) good practice. This framework was approved by the G7 Science Ministers' meeting in 2013. The GSO has evaluated various GRI case studies in the context of this Framework and further refined the latest international good practices around relevant policy areas.
