11 Marzo 2013

The competition highlighted the best success stories from the FP7 Capacities funding programme in e-Infrastructures. SIENA project was awarded the second prize as a success story in the Competitive Industries category. BSC is the coordinator of SIENA.


Daniele Lezzi of the SIENA project said, “We are glad to receive this prize that recognises the efforts of SIENA, the first initiative to gather to the same table all the actors involved in the development of e-infrastructure, mobilizing the scientific community on the adoption of open standards through the direct involvement of the SDOs. Officially endorsed by the European Commission as a reference document for all stakeholders by Vice-President Neelie Kroes, the SIENA Roadmap and its Calls for Action represent the project’s biggest success story. The SIENA activities are still stimulating interest also through their continued support to the Cloudscape workshops, now a self-sustained event which demonstrates that there is still a need for gathering a like-minded community wanting to share their knowledge and insights.”
