Research Infrastructures and research collaborations

Research Infrastructures (RIs) and research collaborations are essential partners of the EGI Community. They are the largest adopters of the EGI Services, they contribute with thematic services (for example, scientific portals and tools) and they operate community cloud/storage/HTC and data systems.

EGI is currently working with over 30 research infrastructures. The use cases below display a subset of them, highlighting the diversity of challenges that research facilities raise toward e-infrastructure providers, and the richness of responses that the EGI community offers to tackle these challenges.

They are also featured in the EGI & Research Infrastructures publication.
