Access to excellent infrastructure is an important competitive factor for excellent research, as well as for attracting talented researchers. To make the best use of the existing, the Shared Resources Center (SOURCE) will coordinate the complex research infrastructure and information services offered by the four Alliance partners. As a single point of entry for researchers, SOURCE will provide services for resource usage ranging from large-scale equipment to data-management support, from open access publishing to complex IT services. The accompanying Research Infrastructure-related Community Building will provide (better) access to and joint usage of top-level research infrastructure and community-centric services in order to foster interdisciplinary research communities around cutting-edge research infrastructure.
