Tiziana Ferrari presents EGI | OSFair2017 Workshop
Workshop title: National and European e-infrastructure cooparation for Open Science
This collaborative workshop comes in the context of coordinating EOSC related activities across large European infrastructures at European and national level. The workshop will offer an opportunity for cross-pollination on issues ranging from open scholarship to technical service provision, training, community engagement and support. OpenAIRE NOADs, EGI NGIs, GEANT NRENs and other national e-Infrastructure representatives will discuss gaps, synergies, coordination and service integration opportunities.
ESFRI Projects: The ESFRI Projects have been selected for scientific excellence and maturity and are included in the Roadmap in order to underline their strategic importance for the European Research Infrastructure system and support their timely implementation. The ESFRI Projects can be at different stages of their preparation according to the date of inclusion in the ESFRI Roadmap.
ESFRI Landmarks: The ESFRI Landmarks are the RIs that were implemented or started implementation under the ESFRI Roadmap and are now established as major elements of competitiveness of the European Research Area. The ESFRI Landmarks need continuous support for successful completion, operation and upgrade in line with the optimal management and maximum return on investment.

Our vision is to offer a generic and open service, intended to work with any EO data located anywhere and with any EO processor, that can be rapidly deployed with flexibility, scalability, at low cost, and which provides services accessed via public and standardised APIs.

The EGI Federation
Total countries 47
22 NGIs, 1
Why a federation?
• Leverage national e-Infrastructure investments
• Open access to national infrastructures and services,
support international user gorups
• Integrated community, private and/or public
infrastructures into a scalable data/computing
platform for research.
• Ease of access via federated identity provisioning and
single authentication and authorization framework
• Interoperability of scientific applications and data
across multiple providers bringing distributed
computing to data.
EGI national pillars: NGIs
• Major national e-Infrastructures: 22 NGIs
• EIROs: CERN
• EGI Foundation
Technical support, engagement, and
• 50,000 users world wide
• Engagement, technical support, incident
management are provided nationally by the NGIs
with central coordination
– Central helpdesk connected with national ones. More
than 130,000 tickets managed, thousands per year

Engaging with the private sector
• Earth Observation sector – exploitation of large EO
data resources in the cloud
– RHEA, SixSq, AWS, IPTPoland, EGI FedCloud, AdviceGEO
– An open platform delivering a multi-cloud EO data
processing service, with the objective to prevent cloud
vendor lock-in situations while addressing end-to-end
processing of EO data in multiple cloud environments.
– Two use cases
• Sentinel-1 data retrieved and processed to produce change
detection maps of a glacier in Greenland and of shipping activity
in the Panama canal.
• Sentinel-2 data processor to generate true colour 10m resolution
