EGI Federation partnerships with research communities, industry and infrastructure providers
- Giuseppe La Rocca (EGI.eu)
As EGI is a multi-organisation federation there are a number of ways to formally participate. This session is dedicated to providing an update to how key stakeholders can partner with EGI both from research and academia as well as private entities.
Organisations representing national e-infrastructures join EGI with a mission to provide distributed data and computing services for international user communities. Joining the EGI Federation means becoming part of a well established community serving international research and innovation.
Regarding industry, the concept/term of Digital Innovation Hub is increasing as a means for describing public-private partnerships such as the EGI business engagement programme, which has been in operation since 2015, but dates back to the mid-2000s. The newly branded EGI Digital Innovation Hub offers an opportunity for private entities to formally engage with EGI to conduct innovation activities such running pilots and proof of concepts, accessing the EGI technical services such as compute as well as taking advantage of the wealth of expertise and networking opportunities that the EGI community offers.
Attendees will hear directly from organisations regarding their experience and benefits in having partnered with EGI. In addition, there will be dedicated time allocated for discussion and questions.
