Our Strategy

Mobilising & Integrating Communities on Grids,
Standards & Best Practices across Europe

OGF-Europe Strategy

OGF-Europe is aligned with OGF’s global mission of pervasive Grid adoption through interoperable software standards. Key deliverables include outreach seminars and workshops, adoption challenges and recommendations reports; community surveys, best practice reports and tutorials.

OGF-Europe also co-ordinates an “Industry Experts” group to better understand how European enterprises are dealing with issues surrounding interoperations and standardisation and to engage them in the core work of OGF.

5 Key Goals for OGF-Europe

Bringing enterprise and eScience communities together to break down barriers and foster mainstream Grid adoption.
Creating a stronger voice in shaping European and global priorities while emphasising the need for open standards.

Connecting requirements across key stakeholder communities, through stronger engagement from Europe, to catalyse end-user adoption.

Ensuring that standards developed are suited to European requirements.

Capitalising on the significant innovation in Grid computing that Europe has built so it may be more influential and better recognised globally.
