In the 2009 European Commission Communication stated that the structuring of the e-Science grid landscape for Future European e-Science grids should continue to build upon the success of current initiatives, driven by the common needs of different scientific disciplines, and to seek uptake by industry.To reinforce long-term sustainability, governance models need to evolve towards a European Grid Initiative (EGI) building upon the emerging National Grid Initiatives (NGIs). This policy oriented session wishes to look more closely at the long term sustainability model proposed for EGI. Through the careful selection of representatives from policy bodies or organisations such as the leading representatives of the EC, EGI organisation task force, e-IRG and ESFRI who may offer the audience further, valuable recommendations will be drawn on key success factors of sustainability:

-How both the legal framework and the migration towards the EGI new governance model will be addressed.
