Goals and tasks of EGI training
The role of EGI training is to facilitate the uptake of EGI services by scientific communities within research and academia. The EGI-Engage project (task SA2.1) provides foundational training services and coordination to this work. The main goal of this activity is to operate a framework that enables members of EGI community as well as external partners to effectively create, deliver, share, reuse and benefit from training services in the context of e-infrastructures and e-science. The prime objective is to provide ‘glue’ and also facilitation for training activities conducted by Competence Centres, National Grid Initiatives and partner projects (including e-infrastructure and Research Infrastructures), maximising the effectiveness and impact of training across countries and communities. This is achieved by providing a training e-infrastructure, data, software and other online resources, modules, a marketplace and webinar tools for trainers and trainees, and by organising and contributing to the organisation of high-impact training events.
The EGI training plan for the March 2016-Feb 2017 period is available at https://documents.egi.eu/document/2810. Coordination/update teleconferences about implementing the plan are held on a regular basis. These are recorded in indico: http://indico.egi.eu/indico/categoryDisplay.py?categId=148
EGI runs a Webinar programme, featuring lectures from the EGI and other European e-infrasructure communities. Further information: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/EGI_Webinar_Programme.
In 2015 the EGI community has established a cloud based e-infrastructure for training. The infrastructure can be used for training events, demonstrations, Webinars and self-paced learning courses. Further information: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Training_infrastructure
