SEE-GRID Policy Workshop
"A roadmap for establishing National Grid Initiatives"
November 24th, 2004
Wednesday 09:00-13:00, November 24th, 2004
Den Haag, the Netherlands
Description - Objectives
The workshop will address issues related to establishing National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) in "greenfield" regions so that representatives of currently emerging NGIs who will attend will benefit from presentations/lectures and "round-table" Q&A sessions that will be given by experts who have already accumulated experience in advancing NGIs and shaping relevant policies. However the scope of the workshop extends beyond the SEE region addressed by the SEE-GRID project and is envisioned as a vehicle towards a roadmap for establishing NGIs in any greenfield region around the world. Specifically, the desired outcome of the Policy Workshop should be:
  • to provide directors and managers of NGIs with high-level information about the structural and organizational strategies needed to build, sustain, maintain and develop a National Grid Initiative;
  • to provide input to the agenda of national governments and funding bodies for the support of eScience;
  • to raise awareness about the role of NGIs and their contribution to the research and education community, as well as to the national economy;
  • to exchange success stories for the impact of NGIs to the progress of regional and/or global economies.
