SIENA, the Standards and Interoperability for eInfrastructure Implementation Initiative (2010- 2012), will contribute to defining a future eInfrastructures roadmap focusing on interoperability and standards, in close collaboration with the European Commission, Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCI) projects and Standard Development Organisations (SDOs) to gain an in-depth understanding of how distributed computing technology is being developed in this context. The roadmap will define scenarios, identify trends, investigate the innovation and impact sparked by cloud and grid computing, and deliver insight into how standards and the policy framework is defining and shaping current and future development and deployment in Europe and globally.

"The potential benefits of cloud computing in business, public services and scientific research are widely recognised. Efforts like the SIENA standardisation roadmap will be very useful in making these benefits materialise." (Robert Madelin, Director General DG-INFSO, European Commission)

SIENA is aimed at:
The MNM-Team participates in the SIENA project by organization of events, collaborating with standardisation bodies, contribute to the work of several standardization groups like the Production Grid Infrastructure (PGI) working group, and the Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI) working group.
