The FIBRE Project ended in October 2014 (co-funded by the Brazilian government and the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme – FP7).

In 2015 the Brazilian institutions took over FIBRE’s legacy infrastructure to start offering the testbed as a service. With the end of the EU-BR project, a new governance model, admission rules, policies, and service operation processes had to be defined.

The diagram below depicts how the current governance model is structured.


The Steering Committee is the highest decision making body and as such is responsible for advising on strategic and administrative issues. This committee is formed by one (1) representative from each institution providing computing resources to the testbed.

The Technical Committee guides the technical evolution of the testbed, generating recommendations and “roadmaps”.

The Operation and User Engagement group is is charge of testbed maintenance and user support. It must ensure the good functioning of the testbed and promote dissemination activities.

The Development team has the duty to perform corrective and evolutionary maintenance of all software supported by the testbed. Currently, part of the team is working on upgrading FIBRE’s CMF to OMF6.
