Seventh e-IRG meeting

The main objective of the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) is to support - on a political, advisory and monitoring level - the creation of a policy and administrative framework for enabling easy and cost-effective shared use of distributed electronic resources across Europe and beyond, focusing particularly on grid computing, data storage, and networking resources across technological, administrative and national domains. The results of e-IRG are definitions and recommendations of best practices for each of the (pan-) European e-Infrastructure efforts. The e-IRG consists of official delegates from the various European countries, nominated by their ministries.

The e-IRG Delegates Meeting is a closed meeting for e-IRG delegates from the European countries and invited experts. The meeting is intended to reach consensus on specific recommendations for future actions in the area of e-infrastructures, to approve the e-IRG White Paper and the e-IRG Roadmap, and for any other business related to the activities of e-IRG.


The meeting will take place from 9:00 to 16:00 o'clock on June 6. 2006.
