The CMCC Foundation joins the EGI Federation, an international e-Infrastructure set up to provide advanced computing and data analytics services for research and innovation, through the project IS-ENES3.
The Infrastructure for the European Network for Earth System modelling (IS-ENES) supports the European Earth system modelling community working on understanding and predicting climate variability and change. IS-ENES recently joined the EGI Federation represented by the CMCC Foundation Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) in the EGI Council – expressing its interest to contribute to the strategic direction of the federation.
By joining the EGI Federation, CMCC Foundation will represent IS-ENES and the climate modelling community specific interests and share reflections that relate to its scientific domain, with a specific focus on the data infrastructure. The participation in the EGI Federation is expected to bring a mutual benefit and pave the way towards a closer collaboration between the climate modelling community and the federation in the context of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Indeed, IS-ENES recognizes the EGI Council participation as a key opportunity to further integrate its data services into the European e-infrastructure landscape, making them also available to a wider interdisciplinary user community.
