  2. 2. ••• 2 EGEE Grid attacks Avian Flu During April 2006, a collaboration of Asian and EU laboratories has analysed 300,000 possible drug components against the avian flu virus H5N1 using the EGEE Grid infrastructure (for the docking of 300,000 compounds against 8 different target structures of Influenza A neuraminidases, 2000 computers were used during 4 weeks – the equivalent of 100 years on a single computer) N1H5 Credit: Y-T Wu
  3. 3. ••• 3 e-Infrastructures: fundamental aspect of all Roadmap RI.. Three groups of facilities distinguished: • Those which fundamentally are e-Infrastructure - based (e.g. all Social Sciences & Humanities, ELIXIR, EPOS) - therefore e-Infrastructure aspects key to address • Distributed facilities, which need e-Infrastructures to work (e.g. interlink their parts) • Those for which e-Infrastructures will be important at least for data acquisition, processing & distribution to users

Other actions: • Foster EU-wide standards, interoperability testing and certification of eHealth systems by 2015 through stakeholder dialogue; • Reinforce the AmbientAssisted Living (AAL) Joint Programme to allow older people and persons with disabilities to live independently and be active in society.
