In the second half of 2012 the European Commission started to review the progress towards implementation of all projects currently on the 2010 ESFRI Roadmap. A group of high level experts was appointed in order to evaluate the financial and managerial maturity the different projects on the roadmap. A questionnaire was sent out to the infrastructures to provide the expert group with the latest information on the projects.
