Consortium as a whole


The EGEE-III consortium builds on the experience of its predecessors, EGEE (71 partners) and EGEE-II (91 partners), which saw the size of the collaboration grow steadily. The EGEE-III consortium is an evolution of the existing EGEE-II consortium which has proved very successful in engaging resources across the ERA. The engagement of the participants is illustrated by their provision of computational and storage resources, not funded by the project, as well as significant additional human resources to participate in this ambitious programme of work (this is detailed further in section 2.4).

In order to attain the goal of a sustainable infrastructure, EGEE-III has committed to structuring its consortium on a national basis, taking the form either of Joint Research Units (JRUs). This is having a structuring effect on the ERA and provides the groundwork for the National Grid Initiatives which will be the basis of the long term sustainable model. Table below lists those Joint Research Units whose lead beneficiaries structure the academic partners in the consortium. The consortium also includes commercial partners engaged in the programme of work, with a special focus on technology transfer to a number of business sectors. These partners will foster the outreach of EGEE-III to potential business users, as well as potential commercial Grid service providers. EGEE-III therefore represents a pan-European collaboration counting a variety of organisations involved in diverse business and scientific disciplines, as well as IT technology. Further, it is strongly linked with the underlying GÉANT2 network via the DANTE organisation and the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs).

The consortium also comprises international partners from Asia Pacific, Russia and the USA to ensure the global reach of the project and to represent Europe on the international stage for Grid infrastructures. This is further detailed in section 2.3.ii below. The countries participating in the project are shown in Figure .



Figure : Countries in the EGEE-III consortium
The EGEE-III consortium will be composed of partners from European States, Asia Pacific, Russia and the USA, thus covering over 30 countries worldwide. To cope with the organisational aspects of a consortium of this scale, the concept of federations has been introduced, clustering participants on a geographical basis as follows:

  1. Asia Pacific

  1. Benelux

  1. Central Europe

  1. CERN

  1. France

  1. Germany and Switzerland

  1. Italy

  1. Nordic countries

  1. Russia

  1. South West Europe

  1. South East Europe

  1. UK and Ireland

  1. USA

This organisation with federations and JRUs will ensure the management and administration of the consortium is facilitated through the Project Management Board and Administrative Federation Committee (both covering all federations) described in the previous section. All partner institutes or JRUs will be represented in the Collaboration Board.


Finally, the consortium includes partners that are involved both in the EGEE programme and collaborating Grid infrastructure and applications projects to ensure coordination between the programmes of work and enable transfer of technology and knowledge. Section 3 provides further details of the collaborative aspects of EGEE-III.
i) Sub-contracting

Only minor items (e.g. certificates of financial statements, printing services or other as appropriate) and no core tasks of the project will be subcontracted.


ii) Other countries
Given the global scope of the Grid empowered infrastructure proposed, it is essential to collaborate with Grid initiatives in so-called “third party countries”, “associated candidate countries” and “associated countries”: Australia, Croatia, Korea, Israel, Japan, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and US institutes are proposed as partners as their collaboration is essential for the success of the project. EC funding is requested for Croatian, Israeli, Norwegian, Swiss, Serb, Turkish and Russian institutes to take on key roles in the programme of work and has been included in the overall EGEE-III project budget and specified in each activity. Modest EU funding to partially cover travel costs is requested for selected individuals from institutes in Asia Pacific, The Commonwealth of Independent States and the Americas to encourage their participation in major EGEE events. These limited travel funds will be held by the lead partner, CERN, and released on a case-by-case basis. The EU funds requested will ensure knowledge of the EGEE-III project will be disseminated in these countries, encourage the adoption of European technology and help build bridges with e-Infrastructure initiatives in other world regions.

The Commonwealth of Independent States

Among the Commonwealth of Independent States4, Russia is a participating country in the EGEE-III project, with 8 institutes as beneficiaries in the proposal. Further, links have been established with Armenia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan as described below.


Armenia

The primary contact for EGEE’s relations with the Armenian Grid is Yerevan Physics Institute (YerPhI), led by Ara Grigoryan, head of the YerPhI team in CERN ALICE physics experiment. The Armenian Grid team have a rich experience in the deployment and development of Grid middleware and application software.

YerPhI is established as a certified site in the EGEE production Grid and has created the first Armenian Certification Authority, ArmeSFo CA, accredited member of EUGridPMA.

The team intends to transfer its knowledge of e-Science technologies to the Armenian research community. A national project called ‘Deployment of e-Science Infrastructure in Armenia’ (DESInA) is under preparation. The project is aimed at teaching e-Science fundamentals and training in the practical use of e-Science technologies by ecologists, biologists, seismologists, physicians and physicists (cosmologists, nuclear physicists). The middleware and application software of EGEE will constitute the basis of DESInA. The following institutions will be involved in DESInA: Armenian e-Science Foundation, Center for Ecological-Noosphere Studies of the Armenian Academy of Sciences, the Biology Department of the Yerevan State University, the Armenian Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth, the Scientific-Research Center of Maternal and Child Health Protection and Yerevan Physics Institute.


Ukraine
In April 2007 the Ukrainian National Grid Initaive (UNGI) was created with the following goals:


  1. to elaborate the national programme using assured financing from Governmental to address rapidly increasing interest of Ukrainian society (scientific, educational and commercial) for Grid infrastructures;

  1. to build an effective structure to coordinate the regional resource centers providing a functioning Grid services in support of Virtual Organisations;

  1. to be based on international standards and rules and conform to Certificate issuing policies of the EUGridPMA;

  1. to be connected to GÉANT2, the European scientific-educational computer network and to work with EGEE and eventually EGI;

  1. to lead the development of the National Grid infrastructure in coordination with EGEE.

Today the Ukrainian Academic Grid Initiative (UAGI) and Ukrainian National Grid infrastructure (UGrid) form the UNGI and provide considerable resources to users: ~600 CPUs in clusters (this will increase to above 1000) and ~50TB of storage online. There is also a unique scientific data source, the Ukrainian branch of the Russian World Data Center, which collects, saves and exchanges data with the other centers, distributes publications and responds to information inquiries such as:



  1. Sustainable development index for the majority of countries in the world, investigation of globalization process;

  1. Solid Earth Physics;

  1. Solar-Terrestrial Physics;

  1. Oceanography;

  1. Energy safety;

  1. Technologies of info society.


Uzbekistan

Building on the support and involvement of the EGEE project, the Uzbekistan Academy of Sciences (Institute of Mathematics and IT) has established a collaboration with the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research (JINR, Dubna, Russia). Two state grants from the National Academy of Sciences and one grant from NATO are helping to establish a Grid node in Uzbekistan. This Grid node will serve as a pilot installation, demonstrator and a training facility for the future national users. It will serve as a scientific training center for those who will work in Uzbekistan on practical or scientific problems of distributed data collecting and processing, and image processing. This installation will also ease collaborations within the country and Uzbekistan’s integration with the international scientific community.


Asia Pacific and USA

ASGC in Taiwan, CNU and KISTI in Korea, RENCI and the University of Wisconsin Madison in the US have been important collaborators for the EGEE-II project (application support, co-development of middleware, interoperability between infrastructures, etc.). In EGEE-III, the consortium will expand in the Asia Pacific rim to include KEK in Japan and the University of Melbourne in Australia. Collaboration with additional countries in the Asia Pacific region (China, Brunei, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines Singapore, Thailand) is also foreseen.

The inclusion of these non-European institutes is important for EGEE because the project supports user communities of a global scale (notably in the fields of life science, earth science, particle physics and fusion). It is therefore essential that a high-level of cooperation with related infrastructures (Open Science Grid and TeraGrid in the US, NAREGI in Japan and national Grid infrastructures in Asia Pacific) is ensured. This cooperation will particularly focus on the development of common policies and interoperable standards.
iii) Additional partners

The EGEE-III consortium is open to engage with institutes worldwide wishing to contribute to the programme of work. Potential candidates and the terms and conditions of their participation will be discussed at the Project Management Board level. Within the countries that are participating in EGEE-III via Joint Research Units or National Grid Initiatives, internal membership may change while maintaining a single point of contact for the project.
