Application Testbed for European GRID computing


The EUROGRID project was a shared cost Research and Technology Development project (RTD) granted by the European Commission (grant no. IST 1999-20247). It is part of the Information Society Technologies Programme (IST). The grant period was Nov 1, 2000 till Jan 31, 2004. The EUROGRID project demonstrated the use of GRIDs in selected scientific and industrial communities, addressed the specific requirements of these communities, and highlighted the benefits of using GRIDs.

Bio GRID

Meteo GRID

Technology Development

CAE GRID

HPC Research GRID

The objectives of the EUROGRID project were:

  • To establish a European GRID network of leading High Performance Computing centres from different European countries.
  • To operate and support the EUROGRID software infrastructure. The EUROGRID software will use the existing Internet network and will offer seamless and secure access for the EUROGRID users.
  • To develop important GRID software components and to integrate them into EUROGRID (fast file transfer, resource broker, interface for coupled applications and interactive access). 
  • To demonstrate distributed simulation codes from different application areas (Biomolecular simulations, Weather prediction, Coupled CAE simulations, Structural analysis, Real-time data processing).
  • To contribute to the international GRID development and to liase with the leading international GRID projects.
  • To productise the EUROGRID software components. After project end the EUROGRID software will be available as supported product.

All these objectives have been achieved during the project. The EUROGRID software components will be exploited by the ther parters for computational GRIDs, domain-specific portals in the scientific areas of biology, chemistry, meteorology and computer added engeneering.
