1 GEN-Medium-High 01 This is key for long term sustainability Click to see more In smaller countries, continue supporting the NGIs, which are under construction, while in cases where no NGI is established, work towards embedding the NGI within the NREN if there is no obvious strong DCI player in the country. Countries with no NGI Click to see more CHAIN can provide links to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Provide link to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Ongoing. This is general reccomendation. Regional reps please fill in which NGIs have been established in your region in the duration of CHAIN Click to see more Regional reps not responding. If nor feasible they have to report why - this could be the case in SEAsia and LA.
2 GEN-Long-Medium 01 This is key for long term sustainability Click to see more In larger countries, work towards harmonising the various initiatives, with the emphasis on producing a national-level coherent strategy for the development of DCIs. China and India CHAIN partners representatives Click to see more CHAIN can provide links to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Provide link to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Ongoing. This is general reccomendation. In India coherent strategy is implemented. In China this is pending. India promised to send strategy docs.
3 GEN-Short-High 01 This is key for long term sustainability Click to see more Provide in-depth NGI documentation through CHAIN website and circulate among the NGIs in CHAIN target regions. All world community Click to see more CHAIN can provide links to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Provide link to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Done
4 GEN-Short-High 01 This is key for long term sustainability Click to see more Carry out focused sustainability-oriented disseminations in all regions, and target these to be appended to the events that gather the policy makers and NRN/NGI representatives of the regions. Policy makers and NRN/NGI representatives of the regions CHAIN can provide links to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Provide link to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Done
5 GEN-Long-High 01 This is key for long term sustainability Click to see more In all regions, progress from JRU model on regional level through to establishing a dedicated legal body and financial model. SEAsia, LA, Meditteranean CHAIN can provide links to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Provide link to examples of policy documents and participate to events in the region Click to see more Ongoing. This is general reccomendation. Done for LA, Med. Stable for China and India. Needs to be done in shorter term for SEAsia and longer term for Africa and CA Click to see more LA and Mediteranean have to prepare coherent documentation. SEAsia should describe how JRU is strenghtened.
15 GEN-Medium-High 01 This is important for interoperability with EGI Click to see more Integrate existing monitoring systems with EGI’s InSPIRE SAM framework or deploy a National/Regional instance if one does not exist yet. ROC managers CHAIN can provide links to examples and related documentation Provide links to examples and related documentation A ROC cookbook has been created by GRNET
25 GEN-Short-Medium 02 This is important to de monstrate/stimulate worldwide collaborations Click to see more There should be one large real application (e.g. global climate change related computing system) deployed across more than three regional infrastructure. VRC representatives and software developers CHAIN can provide the model of a standard-based and multi-infrastructure Science Gateway Click to see more Provide examples and guidelines to run applications on e-Infrastructures having different middleware This has been demonstrated by the CHAIN Science Gateway
26 GEN-Medium-Medium 02 This is important to de monstrate/stimulate worldwide collaborations Click to see more There should be one large real application (e.g. global climate change related computing system) deployed across more than three regional infrastructure. VRC representatives CHAIN can provide the model of a standard-based and multi-infrastructure Science Gateway PKI G.1 This is the case
27 GEN-Short-Medium 02,03 This is important to de monstrate/stimulate worldwide collaborations Click to see more A federated application catalogue services covers all the production applications and software from EGI, NGI, projects and also other infrastructure is essential. It could avoid the duplicate efforts and to encourage sharing of the tools. In addition, VO-specific or generic portal services could be included in the application catalogue. Region representatives CHAIN can provide and maintain an application registry Provide and maintain an application registry All this is included in the CHAIN Application Database
