Astroparticle Physics emerged worldwide, in the last 20 years, from a field of charismatic pioneers transgressing disciplinary frontiers using risky and innovative detection techniques to a full blown global science activity involving many hundreds of researchers and hundred million or billion dollar scale projects. I will report on the recent effort to develop a strategic vision, roadmap and action plan for this field in Europe, performed under the auspices of ApPEC (Astroparticle Physics European Coordination) and in the context of the European Union program ASPERA. I will describe the many links that tie the proposed large observatories to the corresponding US and more generally worldwide infrastructures, as well as the efforts for a global coordination in progress.
