Sigma Orionis, as dissemination leader of the CHAIN-REDS FP7 project, supports the organisation of two project workshops:
The CHAIN-REDS project supported by the European Commission (DG CONNECT) under its FP7 research-funding programme started in December 2012 and will run until May 2015. Its objective is to promote and support S&T cooperation across different e-Infrastructures established and operated in various continents, in order to facilitate their uptake and use by established and emerging Virtual Research Communities (VRCs) but also by single researchers, thus promoting instruments and practices that can facilitate their inclusion in the community of users. The project will also support and disseminate the best practices currently adopted across the world, and promote and facilitate interoperability among different regional e-Infrastructures.
CHAIN-REDS gathers the main stakeholders of regional e-Infrastructures, collectively engaged in studying and defining a path towards a global e-Infrastructure ecosystem that will allow VRCs, research groups and researchers to access and efficiently use worldwide distributed resources (i.e. computing, storage, data, services, tools, applications).
