Evaluating the scientific impact of e-Infrastructures
- Sergio Andreozzi (EGI.EU)
EGI supports world-class research conducted by more than 22,000 scientists and researchers across 50 countries. However, given the distributed nature of EGI and access policies across 200 Virtual Organisations, it is difficult to understand the excellent science being done thanks to the use of e-Infrastructures. In turn, demonstration of this impact to governments and funding agencies is hindered, which leads to increased uncertainty of future funding. A number of activities are taking place across the e-Infrastructure community to increase this knowledge and thus promote scientific results and impact. In particular, collaboration has been established with the OpenAIRE to provide the necessary services to tackle this issue. This session will provide an update on the progress of the implementation of the new processes, tools and services for the tracking of scientific output made through EGI and to better map the scientific impact.
