The European eInfrastructures Observatory (www.e-observatory.eu) will be officially unveiled at the e-IRG Workshop organised under the Danish EU Presidency on June 11, 2012, in Copenhagen. The European eInfrastructures Observatory is an on-line platform, offering interactive and user-driven visualisation tools and an extensive set of benchmarking indicators to facilitate multidimensional and polymorphic monitoring and analysis, support fact-based policy and learning and disseminate achievements of electronic infrastructures in Europe and beyond.

The European eInfrastructures Observatory:
• Offers 7 intuitive, interactive and user-friendly visualisation tools based on best practices in visualisation and representation techniques;
• Features a core set of 45 benchmarking indicators that are the baseline for monitoring eInfrastructures development progress, usage, impact and investments drawn;
• Provides access to more than 10.000 individual figures and other related data and benchmarks;
• Consolidates more than 18 months of stakeholders’ feedback and consensus on the structure and functionality of a world-class observatory.

The eObservatory coordinator, Dr. Jorge-A. Sanchez-P., said: “The European e·Infrastructures Observatory aspires to be enjoyed by all e·Infrastructures stakeholders in assisting them with a practical tool for monitoring the development progress of the constantly expanding and emerging themes of e·Infrastructures across the European Union, as well as by the public-at-large offering them a unique dissemination platform of European e·Infrastructure success stories and new initiatives. Everyone is invited to tell their story with the European eInfrastructures Observatory!”

The eObservatory has been developed by the enventory project, co-financed by EU’s 7th Framework Programme for R&D under Grant Agreement no RI-261554. The enventory project acknowledges the invaluable support and contribution of European flagship e·Infrastructures initiatives and coordinating organisations: GEANT, DANTE, TERENA, EGI.eu PRACE and its Advisory Board (http://www.enventory.eu/advisory-board.html).
