  1. e-Infrastructure Reflection Group(eIRG) Dieter Kranzlmüller GUP/JKU & CERN http://www.e-irg.org

  2. e-IRG Mission • … to support on the political, advisory and monitoring level, the creation of a policy and administrative framework for the easy and cost-effective shared use of electronic resources in Europe (focusing on Grid-computing, data storage, and networking resources) across technological, administrative and national domains. • Drafted in Rome on 10 December 2003. e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  3. e-IRG Members • Consists of government appointed delegates from EU Member, Accession and Associated States plus EC officials • Members from EGEE PMB: • N. Geddes, F. Karayannis, M. Mazzucato, A. Ynnerman • Troika 1H2006: • Dieter Kranzlmüller (Chair, Austria) • Malcolm Read (UK) • Leif Laaksonen (Finland) • e-IRGSP: Support Team e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  4. 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.” e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  5. e-IRG Delegates Meeting, London, 12/2006 e-IRG Recommendation: • “The e-IRG will establish a Task Force to take up this issue.” • “In order to facilitate international collaboration the e-IRG wishes to reaffirm the importance of the national e-infrastructure initiatives that aggregate on a national level relevant e-infrastructure activities.” e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  6. e-IRG Task Force “Sustainable e-Infrastructures” • Appointed by e-IRG Troika • To be announced soon • Initial members: • Leif Laaksonen (TF Chair) • Bob Jones (EGEE) • Victor Alessandrini (DEISA) • Klaus Ullmann (NREN/GEANT/DANTE) • Anne Trefethen (UK e-Science) e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  7. e-IRG TF Tasks • Establish the Terms of Reference for the eIRG Task Force on "Sustainable e-Infrastructures", including the Membership and participation in the discussion of the Task Force • Develop a strategy to answer the following questions: • What impacts do e-Infrastructures have on the research process in general and on which areas in particular? • What is needed in terms of policies and funding to be sustainable over the long term? • What can be done to increase the acceptance and convenience of non-e-Infrastructure-enthusiasts? • How to integrate industrial efforts and SMEs into sustainable e-Infrastructures? e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)

  8. e-IRG TF Tasks • Once these questions are answered, and only then: How to achieve sustainability? Important dates: • Until 10 April: TF to work on questions, possibly extending the team • 10-11 April: Present TF findings at eIRG Workshop in Linz for wider discussion • Until End of April: Provide eIRG statement for delivery to European Commission • Until 6 June: More detailed plan to be included in eIRG White Paper e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (eIRG)
