e-IRG Delegates Meeting, London, 12/2006

e-IRG Recommendation:

“The e-IRG recognises that the current project-based financing model of grids (e.g., EGEE, DEISA) presents continuity and interoperability problems, and that new financing and governance models need to be explored – taking into account the role of national grid initiatives as recommended in the Luxembourg e-IRG meeting.”
