The IT Working group was formed in November 2013 to adress a variety of topics linked to data storage, user support and IT development. 

It has established the following action plan:

  • Define storage best practices (policies, architecture, cost containment, life cycle management, pressure and volume with vendors for better prices)
  • Define best practices for computational support (shared computational resources with national or universities, code optimization)
  • Each institute provides a high level list of applications supported to facilitate knowledge exchange.
  • Establish a list of active and planned projects in order to discover synergies.
  • Establish IT collaborations in areas of common interest and look into defining overall best practices.
