INTERRFACE reached a major milestone: the task of developing tools and applications had its virtual kick-off meeting. It is is a very important step which paves the way to the development of the core product of the project, the IEGSA (Interoperable pan-European Grid Services Architecture) platform.
The aim of this task is to design, build/upgrade and test all the different tools based on the demonstrators' specifications and the elicited user needs, to enable the realization of the scenario of each demonstrator, but also to constitute an additional functionality to the offered tools of the IEGSA platform.
Involved partners participated in the Kick-off meeting of the Task in order to align their activities and to create a plan for the future developments. A first prototype of the tools is anticipated by the end of August 2020, while the final version of the tools will be ready by the end of 2020. The tools that are being developed for each one of the demonstrators will be integrated to the IEGSA platform by creating the necessary interfaces.
