Joint Work Plan

This close collaboration will enable PRACE to leverage IGE's Globus support and expertise to facilitate the access to DCIs by European researchers to efficiently do their research. The specific goals of the collaboration are:
  • for IGE to provide support for Globus and IGE-specific components
  • for IGE to assist PRACE in their evaluations of Globus Online and GridWay
  • for both projects to coordinate dissemination on joint activities
