The distributed national experimental, analytical and modelling platforms are the fundamental building blocks of AnaEE. However, the raison d’être of AnaEE is to provide added value to the scientists and other stakeholders using these platforms through services best or uniquely developed and delivered jointly at a supra-national level.
These services aim at developing the visibility and optimum international use of the platforms, improving their technological and experimental capacities, enhancing the quality, accessibility and integration of the data, stimulating modelling activities, organising training, interfacing various stakeholders and delivering scientific syntheses.
These services will be organised by the Central Hub and 3 Service Centres: the Technology Centre, the Data and Modelling Centre and the Interface and Synthesis Centre. The activities of these Hub and Centres, coordinated by AnaEE appointed officers, will involve leading scientists, users or potential users of AnaEE as well as AnaEE national platforms engineers.
