Europe Latin America Collaborative e-Infrastructure for Research Activities

Project description

Coordination actions, conferences and studies supporting policy development, including international cooperation, for e-Infrastructures

The ELCIRA Project aims to coordinate a series of collaboration tools and services that are being developed in Europe and Latin America in order to provide an interoperability framework that facilitates the work of European-Latin American research teams and to foster collaboration in joint research projects. In particular, the Project seeks:
(i)\tTo promote the trustworthy exchange of information between research groups in Latin America and Europe by fostering the creation of federations for authentication, authorisation and identity (AAI) mechanisms.(ii)\tTo strengthen the collaboration in developing and deploying cooperation services and tools capable of better integrating the research communities of Europe and Latin America by:a.\tWorking towards the integration and operation of videoconference services for Latin America and Europe, by defining documentation and processes for agreeing on a set of standards such as addressing scheme and directory systems necessary for future interoperable services.b.\tEnhancing and strengthening the collaboration of Europe and Latin America in service development activities through the integration of the existing RedCLARA Portal services with TERENA's tools. The future services will be analysed and piloted as cloud services developed by, deployed by or made available within the two research and education communities.(iii)\tTo establish the necessary co-ordination and agreements to move towards better integrated mobility services for researchers by establishing the necessary agreements to deploy a federated eduroam service for Latin America and to establish an eduroam Exchange Point for Latin American NRENs as well as supporting the necessary dissemination activities with the NRENs in order to foster its deployment by RedCLARA's partner NRENs.(iv)\tTo actively promote the participation of Latin American researchers in European Commission Calls and other international funding agencies with high impact in the region.
