EGI develops the 'Knowledge Commons' of the Open Science Commons by supporting the work of science community-specific Competence Centres. Each of these are distributed centres where National Grid Initiatives (NGIs), user communities (scientific institutes), technology and service providers join forces. Competence Centres collect and analyse requirements, integrate community-specific applications into state-of-the-art services, foster interoperability across e-Infrastructures, and evolve services through a user-centric development model.

The work of the below listed 8 competence centres are co-funded in the SA2 work package of the EGI-Engage project. The coordinator of this work package is Gergely Sipos/ at SZTAKI (

A sortable table with the deliverables and milestones of the Competence Centres is available at CC-MilestonesDeliverables

Resources for Competence Centres

Agenda maker

Webex teleconference system

Competence Centres can organise online tele/video conference meetings using the EGI Webex system. There are two rooms available at any time, each for up to 25 participants. Please consult with for booking details.

Document database

Competence Centres can use the EGI Document Database for the management and sharing of their documents. Access can be controlled via the EGI SSO system thus a document can be e.g. shared with CC members, with specific collaborators, or with the general public. Read and Write access can be controlled separately.

Requirements Tracker

Competence Centres can use the EGI RT system for requirement collection and analysis. Dedicated queues can be setup in the RT system for any of the Competence Centres on request. Such a queue can offer a placeholder for tickets that describe requirement - typically about cloud, AAI, HTC, data, gateways or other technical topics. Further information is available at
