Two key areas of the AARC (Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration) project made significant progress at an ‘All Hands’ meeting held on 21-23 November. The team responsible for training agreed priorities for activities until the end of year 1 of this, the second AARC project, and the requirements of research collaborations for technical pilots were finalised, so work on pilots can now proceed.
Interactive sessions gave an opportunity to scope the various pilots on the basis of research communities’ requirements and the availability of resources both in AARC and on the research communities side. It was agreed to conclude the pilot on interoperability between EUDAT and PRACE and to start pilots to support a number of communities.
