ERA - fostering an EU internal knowledge market

slide7

ERA - a new context for EU supported RTD

  • Moving to a European level Research policy
    • Strengthen co-operation between National and EU Activities
    • Improve links between National and EU policies and schemes
    • Take into account enlargement
    • Development of a “shared vision” on European RTD
    • Potential for co-funding arrangements
  • Realising ERA will require
    • New thinking: more strategic and goal oriented
    • New approach: integration, concentration, critical mass and flexibility
    • New scope: taking account of the international dimension of RTD (greater awareness of who’s doing what)
    • New instruments: Integrated Projects (IPs) & Networks of Excellence (NoEs), Integrated Infrastructure Initiatives (I3)
slide8

eInfrastructures: empowering the user

eInfrastructures as a foundation for ERA:

  • integrated communication and information processing service to the researcher/user
  • integrating distributed resources (instrumentation, tools, computers, data, humans...)
  • unprecedented levels of computational, data transfer and storage capacity
  • knowledge sharing environments for science and engineering
slide9

Computing- & data-resource sharing services (Grids...)

Connectivity services (GÉANT & the NREN)

eInfrastructures

eInfrastructures: the next generation ICT-infrastructures

“One stop shop” ICT-service to researchers/users

slide10

eInclusion

  • New working environments

Applied Research

Technology Development

  • Grid-technology/middleware
  • for complex problem solving

Infrastructure & Testbeds

  • Grid & IPv6 Testbeds
  • Research Infrastructure
  • Future and emerging technologies (FET)

Research at the

Frontier of knowledge

DG INFSO: addressing Grids-networks in a coherent wayDirectorate on Emerging Technologies & Infrastructures, Applications

Mastering Complexity - Empowering User - Sharing knowledge

slide11

Research Infrastructures: eInfrastructures for Research

Strategic objective: Grid empowered eInfrastructure for research

  • Deployment of Grids-empowered infrastructures to the Research Community in all scientific disciplines
    • further deployment of GÉANT
    • deployment of a second layer with widespread Grid features, able to openly provide services to a large set of application communities
    • … moving from experimental pilots to stable provision of services
  • Indicative budget in FP6 - GÉANT infrastructure:100 M€
  • - Grid infrastructure:100 M€
  • - Test-beds: 50 M€

operating at 10 Gbps, 33+ countries, 3500 Universities, supporting Grid test-beds, QoS

eInfrastructures: building on current achievements

slide13

Next generation of GÉANT and the NRENs

  • Continue to provide connectivity to all NRENs - yearly growth 2x to 3x
  • Serve new user communities (education, cultural heritage...)
  • Geographical extension (Balkans, NIS etc)
  • Provide high BW for special applications (e.g. Grids)
  • End-to End QoS, Security, Mobility
  • Deployment of a European wide AAA scheme
  • IPv6 all the way; deployment of new underlying switched transport network (lambda-based)

Vision of EU Grid ResearchThe Challenges Moving Grids from e-Science to Industry

Promote Grid research to

  • Solve complex problems with high economic and societal impact
  • Exploit the potential of Grids beyond e-Science
  • Ease access and use of Grids

Moving towards Next Generation Grids

Total indicative budget in FP6: 125 M€

eInfrastructures: supporting important EU policies

  • “corner-stone” of European Research Area
    • enabling sharing of information/knowledge
    • “integrator” of National Infrastructures
  • “spear-head” of an “eEurope infrastructure” (e.g. broadband ++)
  • can potentially be a key element of the GROWTH initiative
  • cohesion, co-operation across Europe
  • key element for international co-operation
slide20

eInfrastructures: motivation for new policy initiatives

  • Breaking barriers:
    • New organizational policies
    • Resource sharing attitude
    • Common policies of accessing computing & data storage resources across institutions, application domains, national boundaries

The harmonization of such policies is a major challenge!

slide21

eInfrastructures: new policy initiatives

  • MS and AS and the EC work together to harmonize such policies in Europe
  • Building on the experience of GÉANT & NRENs
  • eInfrastructures Reflection Group
    • A monitoring and advisory role
    • To broaden the user basis through common policies
    • Links to ESFRI, TERENA etc
  • …for e-Science and beyond...
slide22

eInfrastructures: forging international co-operation

  • GÉANT: linking European NRENs to all big world RNs
  • DATATAG: building a cross-Atlantic Test-bed link
  • International participation in EC funded projects
    • GRIDLAB: funds for partnership with US technology
    • development centres
    • EGEE: US and Russian partners (project still in negotiations)
    • Test-beds: IPv6 (US, Japan, Canada …) etc
  • Context for new initiatives on more harmonised international policies on the access and use of ICT-resources (notably computing, data storage…)
  • Challenge: closer links and synergies between the eInfrastructure - Cyberinfrastructure - other similar concepts of the AP and of other world regions
slide23

Conclusions

European commitment to ...

  • Spearheading of European eInfrastructure for research (e.g. broadband+) fully connected to the world
  • Broadening user basis through common policies
  • From E-Science to Industry and all users
  • Collaboration (ERA, policies…)
  • Growth within cohesion
  • Fostering international co-operation
