GRID-based Systems for solving complex problems, European Research Network on foundations, software infrastructures and applications for large-scale distributed Grid and peer-to-peer technologies, Final Activity Report

Project ID: 4265
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

The CoreGRID Network is funded by the European Commission within the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme for research and technological development. A grant of 8.2 million has been assigned to the project for a duration of four years starting from September 2004.
CoreGRID comes under the framework of Europe¿s Information Society Technologies (IST) thematic priority. IST has defined Grid technologies as a crucial objective that will transform the European Union into the most competitive knowledge-based economy in the world. By providing everyone with immense computing power and knowledge - currently unavailable to even the largest corporations and laboratories - Grids will improve the competitiveness of European industries and mark a new era of markets and services previously perceived as impossible to drive forward. The impact on our quality of life will be profound, allowing us to better monitor and model everything from global climate change to the way cars behave in collisions.
In order to put Europe in front and make sure today's research addresses tomorrow's market needs, CoreGRID is committed to structuring European research by integrating a critical mass of expertise and promoting scientific and technological excellence within and beyond the Grid research community. Through this commitment, CoreGRID is helping Europe to take Grids out of research labs and into industry. This initiative marks a critical step in ensuring that Europe realises the benefits of the information society.
