A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

WeNMR at the 1st EGI User Community Board Meeting

The coordinator of the WeNMR, Prof. Dr. Alexandre Bonvin, represented the project at the 1st EGI User Community Board Meeting held in Amsterdam on Tuesday 29 November 2010.

The User Community Board (UCB) is the focal point within EGI for identifying and resolving issues relating to the User Communities. UCB provides a forum for end-users in structured user communities to shape the infrastructure for their needs. This includes defining the policies relating to their use of the infrastructure and by identifying and prioritising the requirements and issues relating to their use of EGI's production infrastructure.

User communities in EGI are recognised through Virtual Research Communities (VRCs) as this provide a means for grouping aligned Virtual Organisations (VOs) together. The WeNMR project is on its way to becoming a VRC representing in first instance the NMR and SAXS structural biology communities.
