EGI-Engage, ongoing

Full name Engaging the Research Community towards an Open Science Commons
Start date 1 March 2015
End date 31 August 2017
Description EGI-Engage aims to accelerate the implementation of the Open Science Commons by expanding the capabilities of a European backbone of federated services for compute, storage, data, communication, knowledge and expertise, complementing community-specific capabilities.


Entice, ongoing

Full name Decentralized repositories for transparent and efficient virtual machine operations
Start date 1 February 2015
End date 31 January 2018
Description Existing research mostly focuses on pre-optimising algorithms, which are not applicable to already available VM images. With its VM synthesiser, ENTICE will extend pre-optimising approaches so that image dependency descriptions are mostly automatically generated. The project will also introduce new comprehensive post-optimising algorithms so that existing VM images can be automatically adapted to dynamic Cloud environments.


AgroDat, ongoing

Full name AgroDat - Agricultural knowledge centre and decision support system
Start date 1 January 2014
End date 31 December 2017
Description The project aims to establish an agricultural knowledge centre and decision support system based on data gathered by an innovative, complex sensor system and from international open repositories. The new research infrastructure and service platform rely on big data, cloud, and HPC technologies to support precision farming.


VIALACTEA, ongoing

Full name VIALACTEA - The Milky Way as a Star Formation Engine
Start date 1 October 2013
End date 30 September 2016
Description VIALACTEA will bring to a common forum the major new-generation surveys of the Galactic Plane from 1um to the radio, both in thermal continuum and in atomic and molecular lines, from Europe-funded space missions and ground-based facilities, to engage one of the fundamental challenges in Galactic astronomy: to quantify Galaxy-wide the relationship between the physical agents responsible for the onset and the regulation of star formation in a spiral galaxy and the resulting Rate and Efficiency of star formation, and obtain a "star formation recipe" that will be a cornerstone to trace the star formation history of galaxies back to their formation.


CloudSME, ongoing

Full name Cloud Simulation for Manufacturing & Engineering
Start date 1st July 2013
End date 31st December 2015
Description The CloudSME project will develop a cloud-based solution with the goal of lowering these barriers by providing a scalable platform for small or large scale simulations, and thus enabling the wider take-up of simulation technologies in the manufacturing and engineering industry of Europe. The CloudSME Simulation Platform will help end-user SMEs utilize customized simulation applications delivered in the form of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) via the cloud. Moreover, simulation software service providers and consulting companies will have access to a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution that enables them to quickly assemble custom simulation solutions in the cloud for their clients.


IDGF-SP, past

Full name International Desktop Grid Federation - Support Project
Start date 1 November 2012
End date 31 January 2015
Description Main objective is to involve and engage in long-term significantly more citizens and new communities in the volunteer and private (campus-wide or enterprise) Distributed Computing Infrastructures by supporting the rapid creation, efficient operation, and dynamic expansion of this type of DCIs for e-Science.


ER-flow, past

Full name Building an European Research Community through Interoperable Workflows and Data
Start date 1st September 2012
End date 31st October 2014
Description The ER-flow project's aim is to build a European Research Community to promote workflow sharing and to investigate interoperability of the scientific data in workflow sharing. The project will disseminate the achievements of the FP7 SHIWA project, particularly the coarse-grained workflow interoperability based on the SHIWA Simulation Platform.


SZTAKI Cloud, past

Full name SZTAKI Cloud
Start date 1st April 2012
End date 31st March 2014
Description The project has two main goals. The first is the research on clouds as distributed computing systems and the second is to develop and to deploy an institutional cloud infrastructure based on the results of first goal that allows the significant improvement of the local IT infrastructure.


agINFRA, past

Full name Promoting data sharing and development of trust in agricultural sciences
Start date 15 October 2011
End date 14 February 2015
Description The aim of the Networking Activities from the agINFRA project is to foster a culture of cooperation between the agricultural scientific communities benefiting from research infrastructures and help develop a more efficient and attractive European Research Area.


SCI-BUS, past

Full name SCIentific gateway Based User Support
Start date 1st October 2011
End date 30th September 2014
Description The SCI-BUS project aims to ease the life of e-Scientists by creating a new science gateway customisation methodology based on the generic-purpose gUSE/WS-PGRADE portal family. The customised science gateways will enable scientists to focus on their work and exploit resources of main Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructures' details.
