domusBITae initiative has been proposed on 23 June to the International Infrastructures programme belonging to the National Research Plan of the Ministry of Science (e-Infrastructures). The proposed actions are projected for a short/mid-term internationalization of the virtual community under European Research Area support, thus matching overall domusBITae strategy. The proposal is focused on development of a International Scientific infrastructure. The proponent team is constituted by the Spanish Members of domusBITae: ULE, BITrum, INTECO, UB and UC3. (See proposal)
New support to domusBITae initiative
In order to improve the eligibility of the proposal, the initiative is being included in the Spanish e-Science network. We also took part in the e-Infrastructures Reflection Group (e-IRG) workshop, held past 17th June in Madrid, where European delegates informed about the strategies, policy, structure, etc. of the European e-Infrastructure Programmes. Within this workshop we could explain the initiative to the representative of the Supercomputing Centre of Castilla y León, whose Foundation offered to domusBITae the hosting of the virtual research community.
Ninth-FP7 Capacities for e-Infrastructures Call opened
From Brussels, we have been recently informed -from the EU e-infrastructures office chaired by Kostas Glinos- about the suitability to our initiative in a FP7 Call which has been convened on July 20th (deadline: November 23th), there are two lines in which the initiative could be presented. We have to decide which is more appropriate, and then start to develop the proposal enlarging the consortium, dividing task and moulding our proposal to the call (see attached documents). We will keep in touch with thematic delegates in order to further the proposal.
