Part 4 – Turn third-party widgets to EGI widgets
The previous three parts of my series of widget posts described the widget concept, provided guidance on how to use EGI widgets if you are a web site/portal provider, and on how to create EGI widgets if you are a software developer.

EGI article on the Letter of Intent
I was pleased to be invited to produce an article for the latest issue of the CLARIN project newsletter. EGI is working with CLARIN, and also DARIAH, to form a VRC once the two ESFRI projects achieve ERIC status. The article describes the recently signed Letter of Intent that was signed between EGI.eu and these two large ESFRI projects that cover Arts, Humanities and Social Science between them. I am pleased to say that the letter was signed shortly after the article was written.
