COREGRID: European research network on foundations, software infrastructures and applications for large scale distributed, grid and peer-to-peer technologies

Project ID: 4265
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The Coregrid Network runs its research activities in constant collaboration with industrial organizations from top-ranked European IT companies that advise the different Institutes on the Grid-related market needs and challenges and give recommendations on the future strategic research objectives, thereby increasing the impact of the researchers' work. The major communication link between Coregrid and Industry is the Industrial Advisory Board (IAB). The IAB main goals are: to identify long-term technology needs and challenges that are relevant to Industry; to provide the Network with Grid research validation cases; to identify the market sector(s) to be addressed within the Grid user community, in order to ensure a quick adoption of research results; to feed the Network with recommendations on commercially-relevant research objectives. The IAB meets once a year and is composed of 20 representatives from major European industrial organizations.
