H2020 EC cluster for International cooperation
International cooperation has been and continue to be a strong element of eInfrastructure activities. I would like you to list the services, skill development, innovation actions and your focus on user communities and the regions. You may share these with other projects in the group and prepare a synthesis of them jointly to be presented at the e-concertation meeting.
In addition to e-Infrastructure for research and education, I would also welcome pointers and examples on how your project contributes to ICT for development, in particular in developing countries. In this respect, I refer to the WSIS (http://www.itu.int/wsis/index.html), which the Commission strongly supports, and also the EIF booklet ICT and Development with a forward from our Commissioner Günther Oettinger. In liaison with our DG International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO), we are actively promoting eInfrastructure co-operation with Asia, Africa, Latin America and Middle East. You are welcome to highlight your experiences with AfricaConnect, TEIN, CAREN, EUMEDCONNECT and REDCLARA, and also show how it contributes to WSIS objectives.
