Registration is now open for the EUMEDGRID-Support Kick-Off & EUMEDCONNECT2 Meeting, which will be held 25-28 January 2010 in Cairo, Egypt.

EUMEDGRID-Support will hold its launch event at the meeting, which will set the foundation for the project, build on the outcome of EUMEDGRID (2006-2008), and spotlight Europe and the Mediterranean and middle-east regions through an open dialogue. The goal is to increase stakeholder and community awareness on the fundamental importance of e-Infrastructures, with the ultimate goal of ensuring long-term sustainability.

The working agenda for the program can be found here.

EUMEDGrid-Support aims to raise awareness among researchers, students and technical personnel who can greatly benefit from using e-Infrastructures in their work; and also to bring into relief the need for a policy framework developed with funding bodies that highlights the need for e-Infrastructures to empower researchers.
