By assimilating and prioritizing the needs from diverse Globus users across Europe into a single organization -- such a bug fixes and usability improvements -- IGE can either develop coordinated solutions to address those requirements, or help to give those requirements a strong voice within the US Globus team, the various European infrastructure initiatives, and global standards development organisations.
IGE is keen to engage with European researchers who have Globus requirements, such as the need for a new feature, resolution of a technical issue, a legal or licensing concern or support for a specific open standard. If you have any such requirements for Globus, then perhaps IGE can help - requirements can be submitted directly into RT, or alternatively via email or web form. You can find further details on these facilities on the Community Requirements web pages.
IGE is led by the Leibniz Supercomputing Center, Germany, in cooperation with ten institutions and companies from seven countries: University of Southampton (UK), Technische Universität Dortmund (Germany), Universitatea Tehnica Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (Poland), University of Edinburgh – Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (UK), Stichting voor Fundamenteel Onderzoek der Materie – Institute for Subatomic Physics (Netherlands), GridwiseTech (Poland), University of Chicago (USA). The project is co-funded by the European Commission, within the 7th Framework Program under grant number RI-261560.
