EC Policy Initiatives
  • The role of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) is to support a coherent approach to policy-making on research infrastructures in Europe, and to act as an incubator for international negotiations about concrete initiatives. ESFRI prepared a European Roadmap for new research infrastructures of pan-European interest, download it here
  • The eInfrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) Meeting coordinates on a high European level the introduction of a (grid based) infrastructure for e-Science. The main objective of the eIRG is to support on the political, advisory and monitoring level, the creation of a policy and administrative framework for the easy and cost-effective shared use of electronic resources in Europe (focusing on Grid-computing, data storage, and networking resources) across technological, administrative and national domains.
