Abstract

In July this year the EGI Collaboration has been formed on the basis of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), that by now has been signed by 29 participants (27 NGIs and 2 EIROs). This MoU paves the way for the establishment of a legal entity (a foundation under Dutch law called "EGI.eu"), that will in particular be responsible for coordinating and facilitating grid activities in Europe. All signatories to the MoU are likely to become a participant in this foundation. The design of the governance structure will be presented, as is currently being discussed within the EGI Collaboration on the basis of the draft statutes for the legal entity.
