What are e-Infrastructures?
Posted by EuroRIs-Net Administrator on 14 October 2008 09:14 AM
The e-Infrastructures activity is ICT-based and supports a number of interrelated topics designed to foster the emergence of a new research environment in which 'virtual communities' share and exploit the collective power of the European landscape of scientific and engineering facilities. Such topics include further development and evolution of the world leading pan-European research network GÉANT; deployment, extension in time and evolution of core e-Science Grid infrastructures; expansion of e-Infrastructures to address the specific needs of new scientific and engineering communities (including in the area of social sciences and humanities); coordinated deployment of scientific digital repositories, leading to the deployment of a European scientific data infrastructure; launching of socio-economic impact studies, development of common policies and cooperation with similar initiatives in other continents.
