The European Middleware Initiative (EMI) project represents a close collaboration of the three major middleware providers, ARC, gLite and UNICORE, together with other software providers, to establish a sustainable model to support, harmonise and evolve the grid middleware for deployment in EGI as part of the Unified Middleware Distribution (UMD) and other connected e-Infrastructures. The presentation will describe the objectives of the EMI project and its expected interactions with EGI and connected e-Infrastructures and supporting communities’ projects. The software components and services maintained and developed by the project, the harmonisation and standardisation objectives and the underlying industry-standard software engineering processes and services will be presented in detail.
