Supported by 38 countries in Europe and collaborating with the National Grid Initiatives (NGIs), the EGI Design Study is defining the future operational model for the EGI, based on the experiences and building on the results achieved in the EGEE project, and by collecting and studying the requirements for the e-Infrastructure through use cases.
“The experience of EGEE is an invaluable asset in the preparation of the EGI organization. The results of EGEE and the input from the EGEE experts are of major importance in solving the many challenges of setting up a sustainable organization for the operation of the European grid,” says Kranzlmüller.The EGI Knowledge Base is now online!
In addition to showcasing some of the project’s work, the EGI Knowledge Base is designed to be a one-stop source of information on the evolving status of individual European NGIs. The “wiki” nature of the site means that the NGIs themselves are editors, and are thus in full control of their content. The Knowledge Base also provides discussion areas, keeping topical communications in easy to find locations.
An interactive image map allows users to access the individual NGI articles with one click, while another extension provides the means to conduct surveys.
“The EGI Knowledge Base is a great tool, which provides a very useful overview of the situation of NGIs and grid projects in Europe. This is an important basis for the developments of the EGI, but also for the advancement of the individual countries. By learning how one country addresses particular problems, other countries could learn and avoid early pitfalls,” describes Jacko Koster, the NGI representative for Norway.
Kranzlmüller explains: “The future EGI organization is intended to be the glue between the various grid communities in Europe and beyond. For this, we are seeking to implement the right processes and mechanisms, and the sharing of functionality between National Grid Initiatives and EGI. The result will be a sustainable environment for the application communities utilizing grid infrastructures for their everyday work.“

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
