WP3 workshop held in Magurele

A workshop of the Work Package "Virtual Administration, Data and Computing" (WP3) of ELITRANS was held at ELI-NP on 17-18 May 2018. The event was attended by participants from the three ELI Facilities, EGI, EUDAT (KIT) and PRACE. The main aim of the meeting was to discuss ELI-ERIC's future data management services and strategy (deliverables 03.06 and 03.07 of the project), but also to exchange on immediate initiatives to establish stronger links between the IT services of the ELI Facilities.

 The participants discussed in particular the future data storage and computing requirements of each ELI facility at local level and the possibility to use the capabilities of e-infrastructures (PRACE, EGI, EUDAT) or of the other ELI facilities to address peak situations where local capacity is exceeded. In this context, the working group suggested in particular that agreements between the future ELI-ERIC and e-infrastructures be sought to get preferential conditions.

As ELITRANS is nearing its completion, the group agreed on the necessity to pursue the efforts in view of the transition to integration operations of ELI.
