Enabling Grids for E-science in Europe (EGEE)
The EGEE project brings together experts from over 27 countries with the common aim of building on recent advances in Grid technology and developing a service Grid infrastructure in Europe which is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day.
The project aims to provide researchers in academia and industry with access to major computing resources, independent of their geographic location. The EGEE project will also focus on attracting a wide range of new users to the Grid.
The project will primarily concentrate on three core areas:
- The first area is to build a consistent, robust and secure Grid network that will attract additional computing resources.
- The second area is to continuously improve and maintain the middleware in order to deliver a reliable service to users.
- The third area is to attract new users from industry as well as science and ensure they receive the high standard of training and support they need.
The EGEE Grid will be built on the EU Research Network GÉANT and exploit Grid expertise generated by many EU, national and international Grid projects to date.
