Towards an Open and Sustainable ICT Research Infrastructure Strategy

Research infrastructures (RIs) are facilities, resources and related services used by the scientific community to conduct top-level research in their respective fields. European RIs are key instruments in bringing together a wide variety of stakeholders to look for solutions to problems facing society today. In the near future there will be large scale investments in improving and replacing European RIs. These future investments will be predominately oriented towards transnational RIs.
The OSIRIS (Towards an Open and Sustainable ICT Research Infrastructure Strategy) consortium is composed of participants involving several and highly relevant Public Authorities and National Champions across 13 EU Members States and Associated Countries and regions with direct links to existing and future ICT European RIs (i.e. High Performance Computing, Grids, Networks, Micro/Nanoelectronics and Future Internet).
Through its objectives, the OSIRIS project opens a novel initiative regarding the structure and management of European ICT RIs that will cover existing and crucial gaps related to the necessary dialogue between the main stakeholders of European ICT RIs. The mission of OSIRIS is the creation of a open and living working group that will analyse in a continuous process the relationship between present and future European ICT RIs, Public Authorities and National Champions facing present and future issues and thus aligns itself with the ESFRI roadmap and its intention to build European capacity within the context of European ICT RIs.

Objective

The OSIRIS consortium is composed of participants involving Public Authorities and RI Champions across 12 EU Members States and Associated Countries and regions with direct links to existing and future ICT European RIs (i.e. High Performance Computing, Grids, Networks, Micro/Nanoelectronics and Future Internet). OSIRIS therefore has been established with the necessary structure and elements to reach its objectives:The main aim of the OSIRIS project initiative is to provide structured information and models for decision makers (European Commission, Member States, Associated Countries) who develop cross border public-public partnerships and who establish a coordinated approach to future large scale investments in transnational European ICT RIs.The OSIRIS project and consortium will collect, structure and provide this information based on an analysis of the current coordinating organizations active in the field and relevant documents and provide an overview and qualitative model of the important subjects to be considered when setting-up and running an ICT RI including Governance, Policy, Sustainability, Operational principles,.. This qualitative model will be applied to important examples of ICT research infrastructures together with a more detailed analysis of a representative set of ICT research infrastructuresThe OSIRIS project and consortium therefore paves the way to a platform for continuous analysis and recommendations on existing and future European ICT RIs leading to:• Complementary or common planning of investments and investment policies in order to obtain sustainable European ICT RIs• Procedures, rules and management mechanisms for coordinated investments in large scale transnational ICT RI's in Europe
