Kick-Off Meeting of the CHAIN (Co-ordination and Harmonisation of Advanced eInfrastructures) project.
The project co-funded by the European Union in the 7th Framework Program starts on 1 December 2010 and will last for 24 months.
The KO Meeting is intended to be the first official internal meeting of the project and will assess the organisation and the plan of activities.
The second part of the day will be a Brainstorming Meeting with EGI and Virtual Research Communities that have an inter-continental span and will take advantage of interoperable infrastructures providing critical resources such as computing, storage, data repositories and remote access to unique laboratories.
The event is organised by INFN in cooperation with GARR.
Special thanks to GARR for the availability of the Meeting room.
