General Project Information

  • Leader: Steve Brewer, EGI.eu
  • Mailing List:
  • Status: planned
  • Start Date: 21/05/2012
  • End Date: 27/11/2012
  • Meetings: see dedicated page


  • To create a new role called 'EGI Champions'
  • 'EGI Champions' will be individuals working at research centres across EGI's partners countries.
  • They will typically be working in some capacity in the DCI-based research area and available to help others and promote the benefits of using the infrastructure.
  • They will provide users and potential users with role models for grid usage
  • To increase usage of the infrastructure at the level of end-users
  • The UK NGS Campus Champions are an example of a role model for this concept - see link below for further information.


The expected outputs of this project are:

  • The creation of a new support role - EGI Champion - and to have more than half of the NGIs identify named individuals for this role.
  • Identify a number of individuals in various partner countries to act as the first phase of Champions to test out and demonstrate the role.
  • To promote the Champions through EGI's internal and external communication channels (that is within the InSPIRE community and beyond)
  • To create a support process for these champions. This could include defining roles and responsibilities as well as information packs and other resources.
