VOs and Disciplines

IGI supports both national and global Virtual Organizations. A Virtual Organization (VO) is managed by one or more VO managers, who are responsible of managing VO membership and updating VO Identity Cards.

VO Management tools

  • The VO module of EGI Operations Portal is the main tool to obtain information and to manage VOs supported by the various Grids that compose EGI including the Italian one. 

IGI VOs

  • Some of the IGI supported VOs have a regional scope (supported only in Italy) while others are Global scope VOs that can be supported worldwide. The Operation Portal VO module allows to browse both kinds of VO.
