Web portals, and particularly Liferay based web portals, became the prime choice over the years within EGI when it comes to providing user friendly access to infrastructure services. GLite, Unicore, ARC and desktop grid resources, as well as some of the operational tools are now routinely used via Liferay portals. The first Liferay portals for EGI's most recent platform, the Cloud Platform, are expected to become available in 2013. The open source Liferay framework also found to be useful by the community for the development of portlets that are portable across various portal frameworks. This mini-project would answer the question "how could Liferay contribute to the success and the sustainability of EGI even more through new, innovative scenarios enabled by the Liferay Social Office and Sync modules?". Based on the project findings the members will extend their Liferay portals with new capabilities outside of the project.
