Issues

  • GILDA sites

    Low number active in early Year 1

    • Previous sites dropping out, requiring maintenance

    • Delay in new sites coming online

    • Infrastructure now enlarged

  • International Summer / Winter Schools in Grid Computing no longer funded

    • Winter School resource intensive to ensure it happened.

    • Summer school2008 took place in Balatonfured, 2009 will be in July in Sophia Antipolis

  • Digital Library “hit” rate lower than expected

    • Survey - 33% awareness, 92% found useful

    • Response – Promoted at EGEE08, promotional material to launch new website
