Engaging the EGI Community towards an Open Science Commons

EGI-Engage will accelerate advancements across the EGI Infrastructure in strategy, policy, business and technical innovation, user engagement towards researchers within the long-tail of science, domain-specific research communities, Research Infrastructures (RIs) within the ESFRI roadmap, as well as SMEs and industry at large.

Description of Action

Access is restricted to EGI-Engage project members:


Accelerate the implementation of the Open Science Commons by expanding the capabilities of a European backbone of federated services for compute, storage, data, communication, knowledge and expertise, complementing community-specific capabilities


Objective 1 (O1): Ensure the continued coordination of the EGI Community in strategy and policy development, engagement, technical user support and operations of the federated infrastructure in Europe and worldwide.

Objective 2 (O2): Evolve the EGI Solutions, related business models and access policies for different target groups aiming at an increased sustainability of these outside of project funding. The solutions will be offered to large and medium size RIs, small research communities, the long-tail of science, education, industry and SMEs.

Objective 3 (O3): Offer and expand an e-Infrastructure Commons solution

Objective 4 (O4): Prototype an open data platform and contribute to the implementation of the European Big Data Value.

Objective 5 (O5): Promote the adoption of the current EGI services and extend them with new capabilities through user co-development
