General Objective

To establish a set of agreements for participating world regions to consolidate/complete middleware for a marketplace of services and real-time applications to benefit global science communities.

Specific Objectives:

  • To enable mobility and seamless access to services by:

        promoting the establishment of identity federations connected to eduGAIN,

        creating awareness of privacy and security issues, and

        increasing uptake of eduroam.

  • To enable the provision of collaboration tools and services among NRENs based on NREN-run applications made available via a worldwide application market.
  • To seek consensus on interoperability of real-time applications and work towards the adoption of standards such as those proposed by the Global CEO Forum
  • To foster the collaborative work of Global Science Communities by actively promoting the participation researchers in European Commission Calls, etc.
