Summary

The aims of this workshop are to bring together the champions from different projects, as well as the organisers of those schemes, to
- provide insight into what EGI has to offer
- learn from Champions from established programmes about their experiences
- give the Champions an opportunity to shape a policy paper of how to engage with new communities and drive the agendas of resource providers

Description

The workshop has three parts:

Informing:
What Champions programmes exist?
What are the e-infrastructure resources available to users?

Supporting:
What are the user support services available in the major projects?
How do you get access?

Influencing:
How can Champions assist other users?

The workshop will include talks from Champions from a number of new and existing schemes and discussion sessions.
