The workshop aims at fostering discussions revolving around the hot topic of how to measure the impact of e-Infrastructure. In doing so, appropriate methods, impact assessment criteria and tangible metrics are called for, whereas new governance models, regulations and policies need to be established to support such activities in a sustainable manner.

In this light, during the meeting a special focus will be paid on the required governance models, and ways of engagement of new user communities.
