To support its mission, the e-IRG develops roadmap documents providing a view of the technical, administrative and socio-economic issues related to e-Infrastructures supporting European research. The current version of the roadmap was produced in 2009. It looks into the new e-Infrastructure landscape that is being formed by new user communities, and presents sustainable service provision models and fundamental changes in the underlying technology base. Rather than looking at these changes independently, the document tries to analyse their impact from the point of view of the users, service providers and the society as a whole. The document also contains several recommendations aimed at maximising the positive socioeconomic impact of new innovation opportunities that are opening up.
The document is available at http://www.e-irg.eu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=39&Itemid=38
