SIENA - Standards and Interoperability for eInfrastructure Implementation Initiative

SIENA - Standards and Interoperability for eInfrastructure Implementation Initiative

SIENA, the Standards and Interoperability for eInfrastructure Implementation Initiative (2010-2012), supports policy development, including international cooperation for e-Infrastructures. 

The purpose of the project is to gain an in-depth understanding of how distributed computing technology is being developed in this context. The roadmap will define scenarios, identify trends, investigate the innovation and impact sparked by cloud and grid computing, and deliver insight into how standards and the policy framework is defining and shaping current and future development and deployment in Europe and globally.
