In April 2012 opened an Application Expert secondment position for the NGIs. In May 2012 Jelena Tamuliené from the Lithuanian NGI has been selected for the position and she worked in the User Community Support Team between July-September. Jelena’s scientific background is in computational chemistry and one of her first tasks in the secondment position was to review the applications and tools that the NGIs offer in the EGI Applications Database (AppDB) for ‘Computational Chemistry and Material Sciences’ communities and to make suggestions on improving these applications, as well as the AppDB service itself for such communities. This document reports about the feedback that Jelena provided on the AppDB service to the User Community Support Team and describes recommendations by the team for the further implementation of the AppDB and Operation Portal services as a response to the feedback. Although Jelena’s review was made from the ‘Computational Chemistry and Material Sciences’ perspective, her remarks could be made by the representative of any other scientific disciplines and therefore the improvements suggested in the document can help EGI improve the attractiveness of AppDB for researchers of other fields.
