The e-IRG workshops serve as open forums to present, debate, and consolidate best practices and policies in the field of electronic infrastructures and their services for research and education. The workshops are open to all, and function as incubators for feeding new information and trends into the e-IRG plenum work.
The main objective of e-IRG is to investigate and document the e-infrastructural needs of European science and academia. e-IRG is a policy forum for the exchange of ideas, and for developing common standpoints and translating them into concrete policy proposals. In this way e-IRG is serving the wide community of developers and users of e-Infrastructures, as well as policy makers in the EC and the national governments.
The first day of the e-IRG workshop will be dedicated to political, financial and international aspects of e-Infrastructure. A session on sustainable e-Infrastructure fostering international and multi-disciplinary co-operation will be followed by presentations on synergies between structural funds, EU and national funding. A Polish view on sustainable and reliable local infrastructure will also be presented.
The second workshop day will be devoted to technology aspects, which include sessions on ESFRI requirements and on data infrastructures. A panel discussion will be focusing on how to integrate the data infrastructure with the existing grid and HPC infrastructures. The panel will also handle the topic of users and infrastructure providers - demands versus offers.
The workshop programme features key speakers from the European Commission and from the e-infrastructure community.
