• Provide scientists with access to state of the art e-Infrastructure – computing, storage and connectivity resources – available in the region; and promote the inclusion of additional resources.

  • Integrate the underlying e-Infrastructure layers with generic / standardized as well as domain-specific services for the region. The latter are leveraging on existing tools with additional features being co-developed and co-operated by the Scientific Communities and the e-Infrastructure providers, thus proving integrated Virtual Research Environments.

  • Promote capacity building in the region and foster interdisciplinary approaches.

  • Provide functions to facilitate data management for the selected Scientific Communities, engage the full data management lifecycle, link data across the region, and provide data interoperability across disciplines.

  • Provide adequate user support and training programs for the user communities in the SEEM region.

  • Bring high level expertise in e-Infrastructure utilization to enable research activities of international standing in the selected fields of Climatology, Life Sciences and Cultural Heritage.
