AARC Tree project

AARC Tree project

The AARC Technical Revision to Enhance Effectiveness (AARC TREE) project takes the successful and globally recognised “Authentication and Authorisation for Research Collaboration” (AARC) model and its flagship outcome, the AARC Blueprint Architecture (BPA), as the basis to drive the next phase of integration for research infrastructures. AARC TREE expands federated access management to integrate user-centring technologies, encompassing access to federated data and services (authorisation), consolidating existing capacities and avoiding fragmentation and unnecessary duplication.

Over the AARC TREE lifetime the team and the AARC Community will define common strategies for the development, deployment and sustainability of AAIs in the pan European Research Infrastructures at large, to improve access and sharing of scientific resources and to improve interoperability among research infrastructure communities across the thematic areas.
