EGI Community Forum 2015: Building Next Generation e-Infrastructures through Communities
The EGI Community Forum aims at gathering tool developers, infrastructure providers, data providers and research communities to work together towards open science.
Nowadays, research practice is increasingly - and in many cases exclusively - data driven. Knowledge of how to use tools to manipulate research data, and the availability of e-infrastructures to support them, are fundamental.
Along with this, new types of communities are forming around interests in digital tools, computing facilities and data repositories. By making infrastructure services, community engagement and training inseparable, existing communities can be empowered by new ways of doing research, and new communities can be created around tools and data.
EGI.eu is a not-for-profit foundation that coordinates and manages the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) federation on behalf of its participants.
