GridTalk: co-ordinating grid reporting across Europe

Project description


Studies, conferences and coordination actions supporting policy development, including international cooperation, for e-Infrastructures

The impact of Grids has rapidly expanded beyond that which can be disseminated by individual projects. GridTalk will bring the success stories of Europe's e-Infrastructure to policy makers in government and business, to the broader scientific community, and to the general public. The project will co-ordinate the dissemination outputs of EGEE and other European Grid efforts, ensuring their results and influence are reported widely in print and online.
GridTalk's output will come in three main forms. Firstly, a series of reports and briefings will engage policy makers with the specific achievements and impacts of Europe's science Grids. Secondly, the high profile GridCafé website will be extended to ensure its continued success in informing the general public. And finally international Science Grid This Week, the rapidly growing online newsletter, will provide a resource for scientists using Grid computing and for those considering becoming involved.
Through its international, cross-disciplinary approach, GridTalk will play a vital role in encouraging participation in and co-ordination between Grid projects in Europe, and in particular in preparing for the proposed European Grid Infrastructure and other initiatives aimed at a sustainable e-Infrastructure in Europe. It will also spread awareness of Europe's leading role in Grid development to other geographical areas.
