Helix Nebula Initiative to provide feedback on the e-IRG 2016 Roadmap

CERN, on behalf of the Helix Nebula Initiative, has been requested to provide feedback on the e-IRG 2016 roadmap.

e-IRG is a policy-oriented reflection group founded to define policies and recommend best practices for the shared use of distributed electronic resources across Europe. e-IRG produces white papers, roadmaps and recommendations with a particular focus on grid-computing, data storage and networking resources.

For their 2016 Roadmap, e-IRG specifically requested feedback from the Helix Nebula Initiative in order to benefit from their insights and incorporate them into policy shifts.
