Sustainability of National Infrastructures
- Sy Holsinger (EGI.EU)
This session aims at guiding NGIs to analyse the key issues that need to be faced to become sustainable: costs, cost models, service portfolio, business models and service management structures. The evolution of the European Grid from a project-based structure to a network of organisations with a common strategy to provide federated services is a major step forward for long-term sustainability of the EGI community. In this context, each national infrastructure needs to develop or consolidate its own business model and service management structures to achieve sustainability. This dedicated session is designed to better understand the development and progress of the sustainability plans and strategies coming from the national infrastructures, therefore participation from these representatives is essential.
