For each question in the INFRA-2012-3.2 I have put a bullet list of ideas below.

International cooperation with the USA on common e-Infrastructure for scientific data

  • e-Infrastructure: Grid/Cloud/Super Computing
  • Need USA partner -- need support from NSF

The objective is

to establish an EU/USA coordination platform aiming at full interoperability of scientific data infrastructures, and

  • EU/USA coordination platform
  • scientific data infrastructures:
    • metadata catalogues, replica catalogs, data movement,

to demonstrate this coordination through several joint EU-USA prototypes that would ensure persistent availability and effective sharing of data across scientific domains, organisations and national boundaries.

The platform should provide for:

the collection of requirements and approaches for standardisation (development, promotion, adoption and maintenance);

common ICT infrastructure approaches (technical, semantic, reference architecture, financing models, etc) in order to lower access barriers;

harmonisation of intellectual property frameworks for scientific information;

and mechanisms for international networking of experts and multidisciplinary communities.

The joint prototypes should leverage and build upon similar initiatives in Europe and USA.

The proposal should clearly describe synergies and collaboration with corresponding existing or potential NSF-funded initiatives.
