As reported at HPCwire, the European Grid Initiative (EGI) has taken another step forward
The EGI Blueprint, which details the implementation of the EGI Organization’s activities and the first phases of the development of a sustainable grid infrastructure in Europe, has been endorsed by the EGI Policy Board, which consists of representatives of National Grid Initiatives from 39 countries.
…”The fact that the EGI Blueprint is now accepted by so many countries as a basis for the implementation of a European grid infrastructure is a tremendous step forward,” says Ludek Matuska, project director of EGI_DS. “Eight countries, from the smallest to the largest, have presented bids to host the EGI Organization. This also shows the commitment from the national governments to take this next important step for a common research infrastructure,” he adds.
