MAGIC

Energising Scientific Endeavour through Science Gateways and e-Infrastructures in Africa builds on the work and success of the EU FP7 PROJECT, el4Africa. The project aims at creating a sustainable foundation for educational material and procedures for the development, management and editing of Science Gateways and e-Infrastructure in Africa and beyond to energise scientific endeavour. The project is promoting the uptake of science gateways; supporting new and emerging user communities and strengthening science gateways and e-Infrastructure related services. The project is coordinated by Brunel university and will run for 24 Months from 1st May 2015.

Sci-GaIA

Energising Scientific Endeavour through Science Gateways and e-Infrastructures in Africa. Sci-GaIA plans to work with new and emerging CoPs to develop these exciting technologies, to strengthen e- Infrastructure service provision, especially in terms of open access linked data, and to deliver training and dissemination workshops. This will give a sustainable foundation on which African e-Infrastructures can be developed and be linked to scientific networks across Africa.
