EuroIndia Spirit at ICT2010, Brussels, Belgium: Networking Session & Exhibition
ICT2010 Networking Session on Enhancing EU-India Collaborative Research
Tuesday 28 September 2010
Interaction between Indian and European researchers, based on common interests and concrete opportunities, is key to future collaboration. EuroIndia Spirit and SYNCHRONISER join forces to explore key themes concerning EU-Indian research collaboration and ICT priorities, spotlighting India as a strategic international co-operation partner. The session will include a presentation of the Indian ICT roadmap findings, highlighting areas for mutual co-operation, and will recommend emerging EU-India technological trends for joint research. A panel of two or three high-level Indian speakers will present successful Indian-EU research collaboration, offering a springboard for participant views and feedback on co-operation with India.

India has become a valuable partner for the EU in major international science and technology initiatives and projects. Strong links between the EU and India, long-standing traditions of excellence in science and technology, and recent impetus provided by political leadership are being translated into ambitious, high-quality and mutually beneficial co-operation programmes, projects, dialogues and exchanges. SYNCHRONISER and Euro-India SPIRIT, for example, aim to boost the impact of EU-India policy dialogue in the field of ICT, leading to better policy coordination and enhanced collaborative research activities.

Grid/e-Infrastructures: WORLDWIDE COOPERATION ON e-INFRASTRUCTURES - Supporting Collaborative Research on Climate Change and Large Scale Challenges
Shared distributed computing provides a powerful resource helping scientists worldwide to deliver the latest cutting-edge research and to meet the challenges of climate change. International collaborative research is dependent on the successful development of e-Infrastructures that can connect scientists around the world and lead to far-reaching developments having a huge impact on citizens globally. International collaborative research is dependent on the development of e-infrastructures that can connect scientists around the world. Such developments can have a huge impact on citizens globally.
Europe is entering a new technological era with the stable provision of services for Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) such as EGI. In this complex ecosystem, EGI interacts with a new set of projects aimed at complementing its pan-European services while e-ScienceTalk contributes expertise in Public Relations. EU-IndiaGrid2, EUMEDGRID Support, CHAIN, GISELA, HP-SEE (and earlier EUAsiaGrid) provide important liaisons with other strategic world region while e-IRGSP2 provides policy support. Finally, EMI provides the core Middleware needed to power the infrastructure, IGE coordinates European Globus while EPIKH reinforces the impact of e-Infrastructure in scientific research providing educational events.
The work from the EGI-InSPIRE, EU-IndiaGrid2, EUMEDGRID-Support and e-ScienceTalk projects will highlight the global e-infrastructure landscape and showcase major achievements, success stories and future perspectives from around the world. This includes activities of past and future projects such as EELA, EUAsiaGrid, SEE-GRID-SCI, GISELA and CHAIN, with the emphasis on the synergy among network, grids, high-performance computing and data repositories, and their impact on large-scale applications and collaborative research.
