Abstract: One of the outcomes of the broadening of the audiences for education and training on grid technologies has been the recognition that specialised support systems are required to meet the particular requirements of education and training. These systems can be referred to as teaching-Infrastructures (t-Infrastructure) and have a number of special characteristics: 1. Light weight and rapid provision of limited certificates 2. Reservation of resources 3. Availability of production middlewares and interoperation with production grids 4. Availability of next generation middlewares 5. Provide a safe environment for students (ie. effects of students behaviour are localised) 6. Specialised support resources 7. Close coupling to eLearning services Most grid environments and middleware projects now provide their own version of t-Infrastructure (often based on their test-beds). It has been increasingly recognised by many of these groups that the ability of these specialised versions to interoperate and allow students access to work with combined services and compare the middlewares is essential. Developments in the series of International Summer Schools on Grid Computing (sponsored by OGF and others) have led to recent informal agreement among many of the major providers (EGEE, OMII-UK, Globus, Condor) that such an international t-Infrastructure should be created. A necessary step in this development is the agreement of common policies in a number of areas: 1. Booking 2. AAA 3. Resource sharing 4. Mechanisms for interoperation 5. Fault reporting
