EGI-ACE: Call for Use Cases

Apply and get access to Services, Tools, Training & Support!

With this call for use cases, the EGI-ACE project offers individual researchers, national and international research projects, and communities access to infrastructure and platform services, dedicated user support and training. The services, support and training are sponsored by the European Commission and various national funding agencies and are free to access to the use cases that will be selected through the call.

What is a use case?

Selection and results

Proposals for scientific use cases will be evaluated by independent experts drawn from the EGI-ACE SDS Board members in a blind peer-review fashion. They assess the objective of the Use Case, and analyse its maturity and feasibility.  Applicants will be notified of the outcome of the evaluation within three weeks from the submission date.

If the outcome is positive, the EGI-ACE SDS will be in touch to identify the resource and service providers that will be involved during the integration plans. These can be national or international, depending on the coverage of the request and its expected impact.

Technical experts from the EGI-ACE project will monitor the integration plan of the use case in the EOSC Compute Platform on a regular basis and once the Use Case has reached the production phase, a Case Study based on the experiences will be produced.
