The EGI Foundation offers a federation and management platform that enables service providers to harmonise interfaces and connect to a common hub. The foundation team engages with research communities to understand the demand, to simplify the access and to drive innovation together.
The foundation staff is distributed across many countries and it ensures that the internal capabilities sustaining the federation are delivered professionally. At the EGI Foundation, our employees have the unique chance of collaborating with partners around the globe on many projects involving communities in all domains of science.
In order to enable the EGI Federation to function as a coherent ecosystem, the EGI Foundation delivers a number of supporting services in areas such as overseeing infrastructure operations, user community support, engagement with technology providers, strategy and policy development, flagship events and dissemination of news and achievements. Some of these services are outsourced to specific EGI service providers.
Enabling the EGI Federation to work together and efficiently serve international research and innovation is an important endeavour. It requires the ability to deal with many different organisations based in different countries, coordinate the delivery of services from heterogeneous systems, and manage large projects.
To ensure professional support and commitment to continuous improveement, the EGI Foundation established and applies a management system to deliver services and manage projects that obtained the ISO 9001 and ISO 20000 certifications.
