| Legal difficulties block online access to copyrighted cultural works.
 
Millions of copyrighted cultural works lie unexploited in libraries and museums throughout Europe. This includes orphan works, where the copyright owner cannot be traced which makes approval for digitalisation and online distribution impossible to obtaine. The same difficulties also apply also to much out-of-print material which constitutes some 70% of publishers' collections.
 
Why is EU action needed? EU-wide framework needed to bring these online and into Europeana
 
We need clear, Europe-wide rules and an agreed legal framework to enable further digitisation and dissemination of our cultural resources – literary, musical and artistic. These are crucial for the European digital libraries initiative and for the future Europeana – Europe's digital library – which aims to place Europe's vast cultural resources at the disposal of all Europeans.
 
| E-Infrastructures contribute to the preservation of scientific work in many ways. As the results of the outcome analysis show the high accessibility of e-infrastructures in general and in par- ticular the open access to many resources through Data Infrastructures ensure the accessi- bility to this part of the cultural heritage. Moreover the good level of sustainability, addressing the capabilities of long-term preservation through stable and scalable structures underlines that many of the e-Infrastructure projects and therefore the whole program are intended to build up lasting structures for the preservation. Experiences made can also contribute to the further development of standards and structures for the preservation of cultural heritage in general.

| What is the problem? EU online markets are deeply fragmented.
 
E-Commerce is still insufficiently developed in the EU. Consumers and businesses have difficulties accessing online shops and offering their services in other EU countries. Many websites do not deliver goods or services across the EU.
 
Why is EU action needed? To abolish regulatory barriers to pan-European e-commerce
 
Today in the EU, 60% of cross-border internet shopping attempts fail because of technical or legal reasons like refusal of non-domestic credit cards. A huge untapped potential is waiting to be unlocked. Remaining regulatory barriers should be abolished.
 
What will the Commission do?
 
In 2012:
 
Based on the results of a recent public consultation, the Commission adopted an e-Commerce Communication on 11 January 2012. The Communication contains 16 actions aimed at doubling of the volume of e-commerce in Europe by 2015.
 
| In this respect E-infrastructures also contribute to the update of the e-Commerce directive (Action 9). In the ground lying communication (EC COM 2911/942) this is one of the six- teen points that should be addressed. However, since this development is rather emerging there are only few examples like Venus-C..

| Better Europe-wide standards would enhance interoperability and ensure that digital applications and devices work across borders. These problems will be addressed in the reform of the EU standardization framework. Finally, it will identify and execute appropriate actions in the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation enabling easy access for research projects to standardization activities. [http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/european-standards/standardisation-policy/index_en.htm On 1st June 2011 the European Commission adopted a reform package to strengthen the system of standard-setting in Europe]
 
| There is an obvious necessity to follow and be up to date with the last developments in the EU interoperability and standardisation field. It is important to highlight not only the participation but leadership roles that EGEE and EGI and other high-level people have played in various standards groups (especially OGF) and that EGI and EGI.eu will continue to push technical efforts in order to reach these goals.

| Public authorities should make the best use of available standards when commissioning hardware, software and IT services from external suppliers. In some cases, public authorities find themselves unintentionally locked into particular IT solutions for decades, simply because they failed to draft sufficiently flexible tender specifications allowing for open choices in technological evolution.The Commission will draw up detailed guidelines on how to make best use of ICT standards in tender specifications.
 
A public consultation on draft guidelines will follow a public workshop on 12 December 2011.
 
|  Commission will prepare a Commission Communication to demonstrate the link between ICT standardisation and successful public procurement. This is hot topic for cloud computing and it will be more relevant to EGI with virtualisation adoption.

| Europe does not yet reap the maximum benefits from interoperability. Weaknesses in standard-setting, public procurement and coordination between European public authorities prevent digital services and devices working across borders as well as they should. EC adopted European Interoperability Strategy and the European Interoperability Framework.
 
|  The EIF takes a pragmatic approach toward openness and it is primarily focused on improving interoperability between the European public administrations, hence, national public services are called upon to “prefer open specifications, taking due account of the coverage of functional needs, maturity and market support” when establishing public services. In addition, EIF introduces the concept of “open specifications” instead of “open standards”. Potentially this legislation can be of relevance to EGI since E-Governance, the support by e-Infrastructures for compute or data intensive processing activities relating to the public policy issues that are facing government and the public sector, have already been explored in a number of projects. These include, civil protection (see the Cyclops project), simulating traffic patterns for city planning and citizen trends, or environmental protection (e.g., predicting flooding areas, meteorology). In [https://documents.egi.eu/document/721 Standards Roadmap], an analysis of the alignment of the EGI standardization activity with the European-wide policies such as the Digital Agenda for Europe and the European Interoperability Framework is provided.

| Strong cooperation between EU governments, public bodies and private companies is necessary to improve information exchange and to ensure that security problems are addressed quickly and effectively. [http://www.enisa.europa.eu/ The European Network Information and Security Agency (ENISA)] serves as a focal point for this exchange and cooperation. Enhanced ENISA is expected to have a significant positive economic impact, as the current costs associated with network and information security breaches are already considerable and are still growing. In 2011 EC will: publish a Communication containing the principles for internet resilience and stability at the European and global level and ensure that the heads of the respective institutions will sign the agreement to establish the CERT for the EU institutions. In 2012 EC will ensure that the regulations on ENISA will be adopted at the EU level and make sure that CERT will become operational.
 
 
 
On 30 September 2010 the Commission proposed a new [http://www.coe.int/t/DGHL/STANDARDSETTING/T-CY/Proposal%20new%20regulation%20ENISA.pdf Regulation on modernisation of ENISA]. EU CERT became operational in Sept 2011 and will be evaluated within 12 months in view of decision on next phase of development
 
| The key EU actions and any national laws which may follow will have an impact on EGI’s sites and services. EGI.eu needs to ensure that any new EGI policy is consistent with the future EU security and trust policies. EGI should improve communication with the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) through formal collaboration (signing MoU) or by[ other means if signing of MoU is not possible.  It is important to show to that EGI security architecture  that addresses security issues efficiently and effectively providing NGIs with a secure, trustworthy distributed computing infrastructure.

| Attacks against information systems are a growing threat, and there is an increasing concern about the potential for terrorist or politically motivated attacks against information systems which form part of the critical infrastructures of Member States and the Union. In 2011 EC will: proceed with the legislative process towards adopting the Directive on Attacks against Information Systems which will update the current level of protection and take account of new developments. In 2012 EC will finalise the negotiations on the Directive and ensure that it will be adopted at the EU level. Member States are required to take the necessary measures within two years from adoption of the Directive.

| No single country can deal successfully with these menaces. International cooperation is essential at the early stages of a cyber attack. Differences in national approaches and the lack of systematic cross-border cooperation greatly reduce the effectiveness of cyber-attack countermeasures. Cyber security exercises are still at an early stage in the EU. Member States should therefore develop national contingency plans to deal with cyber attacks. They should also organise regular exercises for responding to large scale networks security incidents and implementing disaster recovery. These measures should be adopted as steps towards closer pan-European coordination. The 1st pan-European exercise that took place in November 2010 ( is expected to act as a driver for some Member States to run their own national cyber security exercises.In 2012. ENISA will work with Member States on organising the 2nd pan-European exercise in 2012.
 
| EGI CSIRT is performing cyber simulation exercises and supporting the exchange of experiences and good practices on cyber simulation exercise between different NGIs. EGI successful pan-European coordination should be communicated to the EC.

| Europe continues to under-invest in ICT related research and development. Europe must leverage more private investment through the strategic use of pre-commercial procurement and public-private partnerships, by using structural funds for research and innovation and by maintaining a pace of 20% yearly increase of the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) R&D (Research & Development) budget at least for the duration of FP7.
 
Addressed in the Horizon 2020 proposal adopted 30 November 2011.
 
| The Commission is aware that industry is increasingly in need of open and interoperable solutions to exploit ICT across all sectors and avoid vendor lock-in. Therefore, the EC’s plan is to support the activities that will bring together various stakeholders around common research agendas. EGI.eu should look for a way to facilitate and materialise EC support to improve the interaction EGI has with industry. Collaboration with industry will not only align EU and EGI goals and potentially bring additional financial benefits to EGI, but will also contribute to the development of the infrastructure and bringing interoperable solutions to EGI which will progressively adapt to industrial best practice. The Commission’s decision to start using structural funds in supporting the “Digital Agenda”, which could be very beneficial for the NGIs enabling them to diversify funding sources and ultimately leading to improved sustainability and financial stability of the European Grid Infrastructure.

| Europe's policies must be more coordinated and the resources dedicated to ICT research and innovation should be more concentrated. Coherent and strong partnerships for research and innovation are needed to create critical mass both in terms of financial and human resources and knowledge. Becoming more systemic in pooling and coordinating our resources and investments in ICT R&D and innovation across Europe - both on the demand and on the supply side - would lead to reduced fragmentation, less redundancies and better exploited synergies.
 
Addressed in the Horizon 2020 proposal adopted 30 November 2011.
 
| One of the major problems is fragmented scientific communities, or in other words, user fragmentation within the same scientific and research domain. The EGI is supporting the process of creating Virtual Research Communities that will integrate fragmented scientific communities into a cohesive community of researchers with an established presence in its scientific or other research field. More funds for research and innovation mean potentially greater need through more requests and increased utilisation of production infrastructure from the research and scientific communities in Europe. This also importantly triggers the opportunity for researcher positions and further job opportunities filling the void of skilled workers and growing knowledge. EGI community is a perfect example of the pan-European cooperation that avoid duplication of efforts, ensure complementary efforts, improve the impact and efficiency of European efforts and help mobilise stakeholders around common goals.

| Access to advanced research infrastructures is necessary to increase the quality and efficiency of research. Such infrastructure is indispensable for the formation of innovation clusters that enable multidisciplinary collaboration. These clusters reach their full potential when they acquire a Europe-wide, or even world-wide, scope and become global poles of attraction for scientists and innovators.Europe would benefit enormously if it hosted such infrastructures and world-renowned clusters in dynamic ICT-intensive sectors. They would provide the groundwork for cutting-edge research and talent attraction.
 
Addressed in the Horizon 2020 proposal adopted 30 November 2011.
 
| With this key action the European Commission illustrates the importance of e-Infrastructures and explicitly declares support to the EGI community and its activities. It opens an opportunity for EC to continue contributing to EGI and related activities provided the community is aligned with their goals. EGI should continue to closely follow adoption of Communication on Scientific Information including positioning on Open Access to data and publications and Consultation and proposals for next Research and Innovation Framework Programmes. EGI.eu has already provided formal feedback on the EC Green Paper "From Challenges to Opportunities: Towards a Common Strategic Framework for EU Research and Innovation funding".

| Industry is increasingly in need of open and interoperable solutions, standards and platforms for new web-based products and services to exploit ICT across all industry sectors and increase their competitiveness on the web. In 2011 EC will engage with web-related stakeholders groups, including SMEs, entrepreneurs, ICT users and ICT industry around common agendas for novel web-based open platforms and standards.
 
| This action is related to user-oriented portals that are used by EGI’s users. If the EGI community can create a list of services, then an analysis of potential “products” could be identified as part of EGI.eu business model to help the organisation’s potential economic growth and sustainability. EGI should clearly communicate that it contributes to the development develop a new generation of web-based applications and services, including for multilingual content and services.

| The EU public sector spends less than 5.5 B € per year on ICT R&D, far below the levels of competing economies. Public policies should be creating the right conditions for sustaining the support to R&D and explore the yet untapped resources to support ICT R&D. Awareness raising, experience sharing, benchmarking and financial incentives at EU level will help encourage Member States to move towards the use of pre-commercial procurement. EU action will support a more targeted use of structural/regional development fund for ICT research and innovation and disclose new ways to increase national R&D investments.
 
| The EC proclaimed that it will use structural funds for research and innovation to: develop world-class research and ICT infrastructures; establish networks of research facilities; and develop regional partner facilities. However, EC money is to be used to stimulate national funding not replace it, hence, increasing national funding through Structural Funds serves to complement and reduce spending in other EC funding programmes. One of the tasks for EGI.eu will be to work with NGIs on any application for Structural Funds. This will be done over the following months in order to allow the NGIs to thoroughly investigate the possibility of having this funding source as an integral part of their organisational plans. One of the task could be to create an NGI/SME group that should be composed of a number of local and national small and medium sized enterprises who are given early access to EGI to help these companies think about how they can better utilise grid technologies in their business and to togehter apply for national R&D funding.
