Engagement meeting

Gergely Sipos (EGI.EU)
This is a regular teleconference for the NGI International Liaisons, UCB members, Competence Centres and for other who are involved in EGI's Engagement activity. The EGI Engagement activity reaches out to scientific communities and researchers in both academia and industry and supports them in tackling scientific challenges using reliable and innovative ICT services and solutions from the EGI community. This requires coordinated outreach, marketing, training and support activities across the EGI network and helps Europe build a sustainable digital e-infrastructure ecosystem for research. The EGI Engagement activity is defined and driven by the Engagement Strategy, which is described at http://go.egi.eu/engagementstrategy. Agenda points (to be refined): 1. Report on NIL status. Proposed changes to procedures (Gergely) 2. Update about Engagement cases (Gergely) 3. Report from participants on engagement progress and plans - Outreach, support, training, events (3 minutes each): * NGIs (NILs) * CCs (CC coordinators) * Communities (UCB) * Virtual Team projects (VTs) 4.
