The Romanian NGI - the Rogrid Consortium - has joined the list of fully operational NGIs. The news were broadcasted to the EGI community last November.
Alexandru Stanciu, from RoGrid, announced that the Romanian NGI "has finished its integration procedure and that all necessary operational teams and tools are established in our NGI and we are ready for production." RoGrid is visible in all operational tools as NGI_RO and is responsible for all Romanian sites, previously part of the Southeast Europe Regional Operations Centre.
RoGrid was set up in 2002 by the Ministries of Communication and Information Technology and Education & Research to support the development of the Romanian grid infrastructureand make it a consistent and coherent part of the European grid. The consortium has seven academic partners, including the National Institute for Research and Development in Informatics - ICI Bucharest, which represents Romania in the EGI Council.
