EGI Document 2480-v1
- The original concept behind this publication was to prepare a collection of scientific use cases, including their requirements to inform subsequent engagement and outreach activities.
The compendium comprises the following scientific cases:
CTA, DARIAH, EMSO, Fusion, Hydro-metereology, Life Science, EISCAT-3D, Structural Biology and High Energy Physics.
We also wanted to create a document that could be used to demonstrate the potential of EGI as enabler of a system of platforms for the virtual research communities, research infrastructures, the long tail of science and business, thus accelerating the implementation of the digital ERA.
In this publication, we chose to give the word to the research communities to enable them to explain, in their own words, how their science can benefit from co-development of technology, co-delivery of services, access to expertise and federation of resources in Europe and beyond.
The diversity and complexity of the scientific case studies here presented clearly demonstrate how federated and shared e-Infrastructure have become for science.
EGI is committed to support this trend by providing user-centric services and a user-centric approach to development that will allow these communities to benefit from co-development of technology, co-delivery of services, access to expertise and federation of resources in Europe and beyond.
