some concepts 1 2 www un org esa sustdev natlinfo indicators isd htm
Some concepts (1/2)(www.un.org/esa/sustdev/natlinfo/indicators/isd.htm)
  • Sustainability: in a general sense, is the capacity to maintain a certain process or state indefinitely; the term has its roots in ecology as the ability of an ecosystem to maintain ecological processes, functions, biodiversity and productivity into the future.
  • Sustainable development: is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but in the indefinite future.
  • The three pillars: sustainable development must involve social and economic development, and environmental protection

Loja (Ecuador), EELA-2 Workshop, 05.12.2008

some more concepts
Environmental protection: is the process of making sure current processes of interaction with the environment are pursued with the idea of keeping the environment as pristine as naturally possible.

Economic development: is made of three building blocks, i.e. information, integration, and participation.

Pillars of World Sustainable

Development

…some more concepts…

Social development: also known as social change, refers to:

  • change in social structure: the nature, the social institutions, the social behaviour or the social relations of a society, community of people, and so on;
  • any event or action that affects a group of individuals that have shared values or characteristics.

Grid “Ecosystem” evolution in Europe

The system becomes sustainable only if a social change occurs.

By analogy, this means a change in the way we consider and support VOs

joint research units jrus
Joint Research Units (JRUs)
  • A Joint Research Unit (JRU) is a partnership with no legal status as such, formed between entities of the same nationality and meeting the following conditions:
    • scientific and economic unity (internal MoU in place);
    • lasting a certain length of time (not linked to a particular project);
    • recognised by a public authority (minister, secretary of state, etc.).
  • See some examples at:
    • http://documents.eu-eela.eu/collection/JRUs%20-%20NGIs

  • It’s a legal Organisation that must:
    • Have the capacity to sign the statutes of the Large Grid Initiative it is member of – either directly or through a legal entity representing it;
    • Have a mandate to represent its national Grid community in all matters falling within the scope of Large Grid Initiative it is member of;
    • Be the only organisation having the mandate described in the previous point for its country and thus provide a single contact point at national level;
    • Nominate a representative duly authorised to deliberate, negotiate and decide on all matters falling within the mandate of the Large Grid Initiative it is member of;
    • Have a sustainable structure or be represented by a legal structure that has a sustainable structure in order to commit to Large Grid Initiative it is member of in the long term.

the european grid initiative egi
The European Grid Initiative (EGI)

Goal:

  • Long-term sustainability of grid infrastructures in Europe

Approach:

  • Establishment of a new federated model bringing together NGIs to build the EGI Organisation

EGI Organisation:

  • Coordination and operation of a common multi-national, multi-disciplinary Grid infrastructure
    • To enable and support international Grid-based collaboration;
    • To provide support and added value to NGIs;
    • To liaise with corresponding infrastructures outside Europe.

the path to egi egi ds www eu egi eu

EGI Design Study started Sept 07 to establish a sustainable pan-European grid infrastructure after the end of EGEE-3 in 2010

The main foundations of EGI are 37 National Grid Initiatives (NGIs)

Project is funded by the European Commission\'s 7th Framework Program

the latin american grid infrastructure gridlgi
The Latin American Grid Infrastructure - GridLGI
  • GridLGI is composed, from bottom to top of three layers, each of them including Grid and Network components:
    • At the lower Institute level:
      • The Resource Centre (RC) is the actual site of the Grid computing resources;
      • The backbone LAN or MAN network connects the Computing and Storage Elements (CE & SE) at the RC site;
    • At the intermediate national level:
      • The National Grid Initiative (NGI) integrates all Grid Institutions in the country and federates under its Grid Operation Centre (GOC) all their RCs in a National Grid (GridNGI);
      • The underlying National Research & Education Network (NREN) links country-wide the Research and Education Institutes and optimizes / monitors their network activity via its associated Network Operation Centre (NOC);
    • The upper international layer is made of two entities at the same level:
      • The Latin American Grid Initiative (LGI) which brings together all NGIs and supervises the various GridNGIs operation from its Grid Support Centre (GSC);
      • CLARA: Cooperación Latino Americana de Redes Avanzadas that is the WAN network which integrates the Latin American NRENs and supervises the overall RedCLARA network activity by means of its Network Support Centre (NSC).

A possible structure of a Latin American NGI

A strong liaison with the NREN must be established.

Local conditions permitting, NGI and NREN can merge into a single entity.

summary and conclusions
Summary and conclusions
  • Long-term sustainability of e-Infrastructures world wide is key for a continued support of scientific communities;
  • EELA-2 has defined the model and the architecture of the Latin American Grid Initiative (LGI) and they are in good agreement with basic principles and with what is being done in Europe with EGI on the same subject;
  • However, the roof will be solid only if the pillars will be strong so Latin American countries should start as soon as possible the creation of NGIs in close relationships with NRENs;
  • Ecuador is a “new” partner of EELA-2 so the creation of a JRU, and eventually a NGI, are very important steps that have to be taken as soon as possible and I hope that this workshop can set the ground for this to happen.
