Institutional feedback

Institutional Feedback

  • Data must be a first class citizen

  • Data management policy requirements;

    • How can data be made Open Access within collaborative research projects but still curated as per RC requirements?

  • Requirement for scaling from institutional (from Desktops via HPC clusters) to national and international resources

  • Multi faceted entry mechanisms to e-infrastructure are a necessity

  • Shared services using licensed software must be handed in more common ways

  • Must have common mechanisms for accounting and reporting to institutions about services used on external e-Infrastructure, including commercial providers

Projects input for the 8 th july

Projects Input for the 8th July

  • e-infrastructure is a wide and diverse area, it cannot be pigeon holed into any single type of resource to the detriment of others, all types must be available in a co-ordinated manner.

  • Many problems communities face are not technical but social, we must not try to impose technical solutions that don’t fit

  • Projects are increasingly looking to services rather than physical resources, but wish to see new types of resource available in a co-ordinated manner alongside more traditional systems

  • Some projects already have resources they wish to aggregate and are/have been working with the NGS currently, e.g. DiRAC, NeISS, NSCCS, SKA, CCP4.

  • Some projects have extremely strong RC participation and this will shape other researchers from their domain


Future

Future

  • The NGS including current and future stakeholders fully supports the vision of a more integrated e-Infrastructure to support academic research in the UK

  • We must build on experience taking note of successes and failures to ensure that we move forward as a community
