The Georgian agency for weather forecast and climate change studies will use Cloud infrastructure established with EU support, according to a new Memorandum of Cooperation.
The cooperation between GRENA, the Georgian Research and Educational Networking Association, and the country’s National Environmental Agency will provide the agency with Cloud resources that include 24 core, 64 GB RAM, 10 TB storage and IT support.
The memorandum was signed by Andro Aslanishvili, Head of the National Environmental Agency, and by Ramaz Kvatadze, the Executive Director of GRENA.
The research and education Cloud facility in Georgia is being integrated in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
GRENA’s Cloud infrastructure was established with the support of EU4Digital under the EU-funded EaPConnect project, which aims to bring together research and education communities from EU and Eastern partner countries and to reduce the digital divide. The project extends network infrastructure to scale up scientific exchange across borders, offer new services to enhance international R&E cooperation, and strengthen national research and education networks (NRENs).
