Work Packages

The second AARC project is structured as follows:

Project Management and Sustainability (NA1)

NA1 handles the overall management of the project. The goal of NA1 is to bring people together to accomplish the project’s goals and objectives using the available resources efficiently and effectively.

Lead: Licia Florio | GÉANT |

Training and Outreach (NA2)

NA2 addresses the gaps still present in the knowledge of user communities using training, communication activities targeted at communities, and dissemination and outreach activities to maximise project impacts.

Lead: Andrea Biancini | RETI |

Policy and Best Practice Harmonisation (NA3)

NA3 minimises the number of divergent AAI policies and empowers identity providers, service providers and user communities to identify interoperable policies for the open science vision.

Lead: David Groep | FOM-Nikhef |

Integrated AAI Developments (JRA1)

JRA1 addresses the integration of the blueprint architecture and its components into existing AAIs, explores scalable authorisation solutions in multi-service provider environments, integrates additional technical components in the AAI design to support a wider range of use-cases than to date, and ensures cross-sector inter-operation.

Lead: Nicolas Liampotis | GRNET |

Community Use-Cases and Infrastructure Integration Pilots (SA1)

The goals of SA1 are to show the benefits of an overarching AA infrastructure for research communities and e-infrastructures, to consolidate the results of AARC and improve the technical readiness levels of AAI components, to introduce and test new emerging AAI solutions and approaches and show their viability, and to improve adoption.

Lead: Arnout Terpstra | SURFnet |
