GLOBAL excursion, past

Full name GLOBAL excursion
Start date 1st September 2011
End date 28th February 2014
Description GLOBAL excursion is a new way to science education. In this project we will introduce e-Infrastructures to educators and their pupils between 14-18 years of age (upper stage school) through the Virtual Science Hub (ViSH) platform. The driving themes currently are Nano- and bio-technologies, as well as volunteer computing and life sciences with an interdisciplinary focus especially including ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA).


CRISP, past

Full name The Cluster of Research Infrastructures for Synergies in Physics
Start date 10th Ocotber 2010
End date 30th September 2014
Description The Cluster of Research Infrastructures for Synergies in Physics is cooperative project covering a wide variety of scientific goals together with a broad range of experimental methods and techniques. It brings together talents in the fields of accelerators, detectors, instruments, experiments, information technology and data management from a cluster of formerly discrete projects.


HP-SEE, past

Full name High-Performance Computing Infrastructure for South East Europe
Start date 1st September 2010
End date 31st August 2012
Description HP-SEE’s Research Communities link existing and upcoming HPC facilities in South East Europe in a common infrastructure, and it will provide operational solutions for it.


SHIWA, past

Full name SHaring Interoperable Workflows for large-scale scientific simulations on Available DCIs
Start date 1st July 2010
End date 30th September 2012
Description SHIWA project provided a technology to share and reuse already existing workflows among different workflow systems and DCIs. According to the new SHIWA technologies publicly available workflows can be used by different research communities working on different workflow systems and are enabled to run on multiple distributed computing infrastructures. As a result workflow communities are not locked any more in to their selected workflow system and its supported distributed computing infrastructure.


EDGI, past

Full name European Desktop Grid Initiative
Start date 1st June 2010
End date 31st May 2012
Description EDGI project main goal was to develop middleware that consolidates the results achieved in the EDGeS project concerning the extension of Service Grids with Desktop Grids in order to support EGI and NGI user communities that are heavy users of DCIs and require an extremely large number of CPUs and cores. EDGI went beyond existing DCIs that are typically cluster Grids and supercomputer Grids in the current NGIs, and will extend them with public and institutional Desktop Grids and Clouds.



Full name Desktop Grids for International Scientific Collaboration
Start date 1st June 2010
End date 31st May 2012
Description The main aim of the DEGISCO project was the further extension of the European DCI infrastructure that is already interconnected by EDGeS to International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC) in strong collaboration with on the one hand local partners in ICPC countries and on the other hand European e-Infrastructure experts (including 3G Bridge know-how) and thus, reinforce the global relevance and impact of European distributed infrastructures.



Full name European Grid Initiative: Integrated Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Researchers in Europe
Start date 2010
End date 2014
Description The EGI-InSPIRE project started on 1 May 2010, co-funded by the European Commission for four years, as a collaborative effort involving more than 50 institutions in over 40 countries. Its mission is to establish a sustainable European Grid Infrastructure (EGI).


ETICS 2, past

Full name eInfrastructure for Testing, Certification and Integration of Software – Phase 2
Start date 2008
End date 2010
Description The main objective of ETICS 2 was to expand the availability, flexibility and efficiency of the existing ETICS services to new infrastructures and new communities. The project reached out to existing and emerging infrastructures beyond the currently supported communities, capturing commonalities and promoting open standards on software build, testing and quality assurance.


Web2Grid, past

Full name Web2Grid
Start date 1st December 2008
End date 31st January 2012
Description While WEB2 technologies assist to assure the resources in the desktop grid community on voluntary or settlement bases, the developed platform extended with desktop grid systems offers back-end infrastructure for the operational requirements of WEB2 portals and systems. By combining WEB2 with Desktop Grid technologies, WEB2 can extend its capabilities from the community contents towards to shared services with the help of grid technologies. The project aims to develop the tools, interfaces and methodologies through which the above mentioned targeted services can be established both in closed (local desktop grid), and in open (global desktop grid) environments.


S-CUBE, past

Full name European Network of Excellence in Software Services and Systems
Start date 1st March 2008
End date 29th February 2012
Description S-Cube integrated research communities to address Service-Oriented computing research challenges and established a Network of Excellence enabling Europe to lead in the fields of Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering.
