The sustainability of grid infrastructures beyond the project lifetime relies on the capacity to provide a service with quality standards. In this context it is important to understand what are possibilities at the Service Level Agreement for users and resources to cluster in a usable grid infrastructure.

4. Conclusions / Future plans
The development of a grid infrastructure targeting advanced services such as parallelism and interactivity has prove to be attractive for user communities. The experience gathered by the inteugrid consortium needs now to be consolidated in a well defined exploitation path.
1. Short overview
We will summarize the main achievements of the project Interactive European Grid from the point of view of middleware oriented to advanced application support.
We will also address the exploitation path of the project in what concerns support to user communities and middleware lrepositories perspective in the context of RESPECT. We will discuss several models of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) oriented to serve research centers and SMEs interested in using grid infrastructures
