As of March 2011, the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) connects about 330 resource centres to 18,000 users across Europe and beyond. EGI is always looking to expand the number of providers and invites unaffiliated resource centres to join in.
If you are the representative of a resource centre or a cluster interested in joining the infrastructure, we invite you to go through the following steps:
a. YES, my country is contributing resources to EGI
Please contact (map & contacts) the resource provider in your country and they will assist you in the process. Thank you for your interest!
b. NO, my country is not on the list of EGI resource providers
Please see Question 2
a. ... a resource centre / site / cluster?
If a local resource provider is not available, being part of EGI is still possible. Please send an e-mail to the EGI.eu Operations team (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The EGI.eu Operations team can help you to become part of the infrastructure, and will assist you through the different steps, from resource centre registration to certification.
b. ... a National Grid Initiative or other Resource Infrastructure Provider?
Please send an e-mail to the EGI.eu Operations team (email@example.com).
EGI.eu will assist you during the integration process. Please note that new resource infrastructure providers must first be accredited by the EGI Council. To do so non-European resource infrastructure providers can start a formal collaboration with EGI.eu through a Memorandum of Understanding.
