“National Nodes – Getting organized; how far are we?” e-IRG’s new policy document on National Nodes
On 19 June 2019 the e-Infrastructure Reflection Group (e-IRG) has published its new policy document “National Nodes – Getting organised; how far are we?”. The document addresses the role of the national e-Infrastructure nodes - including their coordination with the thematic e-Infrastructures - in the implementation of the e-Infrastructure Commons and its instantiation as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The National Nodes document is a follow-up to the e-IRG work such as the e-IRG Roadmap 2016 and depicts a representative picture of the European e-Infrastructure landscape at its current state. Furthermore, a number of recommendations on how to efficiently implement the e-Infrastructure Commons in the form of the European Open Science Cloud is provided.
Over the last 2.5 years eInfraCentral project has cooperated with e-IRG and its support project e-IRGSP5 as a way to get valuable input and information from national e-IRG delegates.
