    EGEE is a project funded by the European UnionEGEE-SEE regional kick-off, April 7-8th, 2004

  • EGEE Regions

  • NA3 objectivesProducing a portfolio of training material and courses from introductory to advanced user materialUsing this material to train a wide variety of users both internal to the EGEE consortium and from the external user groups from across Europe who will make use of the infrastructureEnsuring that EGEE Team Spirit is engendered early in the projects lifetime

  • TA requirement for courses (Internal EGEE)

  • Training of trainers (internal) to a level deeper than that at which they train.Training places demands on other activities, before the training burden can be lifted from them!Trainers are early users.


  • Initial planning (internal)The initial training material for external courses, including tutorials and practical classes will be developed and managed by NeSC (UEDIN) with input from other EGEE teams Initial team focus: EGEE internal induction courseFirst run 26-28 April at NeSC (for EGEE trainers and participants)Draft modules onto Web during MaySecond run 18-20 May at CERN (for EGEE trainers and participants)Produce course in June: available as modules, as configurable days, as well as two-day course envisaged by Technical Annex

    AP: Identify participants (1 per country)

  • Internal induction course: targetsInduction course will include:Grids and their applicationEGEE Project context, history, goals, structureEGEE Grid current middleware, future technologyEGEE Project procedures management, admin, website, where to find standards

  • Internal induction course: outlineResources available include:2 day EDG tutorialGENIUS portalDemonstrationsTutorial material tested & available by end May:~1 day on EGEE structure, procedures, goals, context, introduction to Grids, applications & technologiesReleased to EGEE Intranet in May (drafts earlier)~1 day on demonstrations, practicals with both GENIUS and command-line interfacesSuited to new recruits especially; usable for external induction later.Modular, configurable resources will be on EGEE IntranetTrainers across EGEE will be mobilised to deliver these

  • Training material (external)Introductory tutorials on necessary background (OGSI/GT3/etc.)Introductory tutorials on EGEE specificsApplication development tutorials for end-usersHands-on tutorials regarding EGEE services use

  • NA3 execution plan: overview

  • Training organization

  • Training organizationGRNET will be coordinating the NA3 effort in the SA region, with the input from all partners. This includes coordinating partners input to deliverables + overall coordination of the course planning and delivery in the region; with the strong participation from TAU and ICI.The training manager role on the regional level: GRNET.Country regional training managers in Romania (ICI), Israel (TAU) and Greece (GRNET). Support training managers in Cyprus and Bulgaria help the training activities.

  • Identification of personnel & rolesAP: Identify ALL personnel and roles for ALL countries

  • Courses for external users per countryAP: Identify courses planned per country (including costs)
