Update 26 March 2020

EGI and the EOSC-Synergy project have joined forces to set up a cloud computing platform that supports COVID-19 research efforts.

A formal service level agreement is now in place to support this goal, with the following EGI cloud providers involved: CESGA, CESNET, IFCA-LCG2, IISAS, NCG-INGRID-PT. Read more about the initiative.

Update 17 March 2020

Due to the spreading of the COVID-19 outbreak, the EGI Foundation is working with partners to conduct a thorough impact assessment across the EGI Federation services, the EGI Federation central services and other assets, with the purpose of putting in place contingency measures that aim at maximizing the availability of all services. We are also assessing the impact on our community events, and the EGI Conference 2020, which for the moment remains confirmed on 23-25 June 2020. More information will follow on this website in the coming weeks.

As advised by the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment all EGI Foundation employees have moved remote working until the 6th of April, therefore the office (Science Park 140, Amsterdam) is temporarily closed. Business at the EGI Foundation is expected to continue as usual, and all our staff members will be approachable via their contact details which you can find on our team page
