8% of survey complete.
The EGI Compendium survey aims to collect a structured set of data from the EGI.eu participants and associated participants (NGIs/EIROs) to create a body of knowledge to be updated on a yearly basis.

The collected data refers to key areas such as legal form, users, services, resources, technology and sustainability. The data will be analysed and organised in a booklet to be distributed within the EGI community and outside.

The objectives of the EGI Compendium are:
- to increase the transparency about organisational structure, status and plan of NGIs/EIROs
- to provide an essential body of information for the various stakeholders to better support strategic planning
- to provide more clarity about the EGI.eu partnership with the NGIs/EIROs outside the EGI community

The survey is structure in the following sections:
- identity and contact
- strategy
- governance
- funding of the NGI
- funding and staffing of the NGI/EIRO e-infrastructure
- policy
- outreach
- services
- users
- infrastructure
- technology

This survey should be filled by each NGI/EIRO that is a member of EGI.eu. In order to answer some question, NGIs need to collect data from the respective members. Therefore, we suggest to circulate an internal survey to collect the necessary information (especially those in section "Funding and Staffing of the NGI/EIRO e-Infrastructure").
