Top scientists and researchers rely on high-quality scientific infrastructures. These include large-scale equipment as telescopes, information infrastructures to manage all kinds of content (data, objects, media), research-based services, resources such as data or archive collections, and social infrastructures, such as conference and meeting centres.
