Support to the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG)
The e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) brings together representatives from policy makers, funding bodies and the scientific community from the Member States and Associated Countries to provide advice on policy-making towards inclusive, federated, user-driven and resilient e-Infrastructures and connected services.
Proposals should support e-IRG members in carrying out the following activities:
- strengthen e-IRG analytical capacity, including through the use of external expertise in support of e-IRG policy documents;
- developing and publishing policy papers, providing complementary advice and recommendations in the development of the e-Infrastructure area;
- developing and implementing the e-IRG communication and outreach strategy, and disseminating the results throughout the European Research Area;
- liaising with ESFRI to jointly underpin the interworking of e-Infrastructures with the ESFRI thematic clusters;
Following the setup of new constructs in the European landscape, notably the EOSC Association and the EOSC European Partnership, the e-IRG will conclude its work in the transitional period of 2021-2022 whereafter its expertise should assimilate to the relevant operational entities in Europe.
