End date 31st December 2009
Description EDGeS was a European project with the aim of creating an integrated Grid infrastructure that seamlessly integrates a variety of Desktop Grids with EGEE type of service Grids.


HAGRID, past

Full name Development and meteorological application of new generation grid technologies in the environmental protection & building energy management
Start date 1st October 2005
End date 15th September 2008
DescriptionThe aim of this project was to universalize the methods of SETI-type Desktop Grid systems and to rework that for adoption scalable institutional and business grid systems and for enabling to business R&D the home PCs resources.


GridML, past

Full name Next generation data mining on high performance, parallel distributed systems
Homepage not specified
Start date 1st January 2005
End date 28th February 2007
Description The aim of the GridML project was to develop a prototype of an advanced, next-generation data-mining system, capable of more efficiently exploiting the vast computational resources of distributed, parallel computational environments. Researchers looked not only into the problem of predicting the performance of the algorithms separately, but also at the whole process of data mining, where the cost of making such predictions is also taken into account.

Hungarian SuperCluster project

Hungarian SuperCluster project, past

Full name Hungarian SuperCluster project
Homepage not specified
Start date 2004
End date 2005
Description As a result of the ClusterGrid project a significant high-performance computing Grid infrastructure has been created in Hungary. The ClusterGrid currently connects about 600 PCs of 13 higher educational institutions. The system is constantly grows and the final goal is to connect more than 2000 PCs by the end of 2004. Although the ClusterGrid already works as a regular infrastructure service it raises several problems to be solved. The basic goal of this project was to solve the problems by providing new functions for the ClusterGrid like
  • checkpoint handling for PVM and MPI programs,
  • Grid brokering,
  • workflow management,
  • high-level user interfaces,
  • Grid monitoring,
  • handling large data files and databases in the Grid,
  • accounting system support,
  • application of VPN and IPv6 technologies.


EGEE, past

Full name Enabling Grids for E-sciencE
Start date 2004
End date 2008
Description The EGEE project brought together experts from more than 50 countries with the common aim of building on recent advances in Grid technology and developing a service Grid infrastructure which is available to scientists 24 hours-a-day. The project provided researchers in academia and business with access to a production level Grid infrastructure, independent of their geographic location. The EGEE project also focused on attracting a wide range of new users to the Grid.


SEE-GRID, past

Full name South Eastern European GRid-enabled eInfrastructure Development
Start date 2004
End date 2008
Description SEE-GRID intended to provide specific support actions to pave the way towards the participation of the SE European countries to the Pan-European and worldwide Grid initiatives. This would be accomplished through disseminationconferences and training material including cookbooks, pilot and demonstrationtest-beds for hands-on experience, applications' adaptations to be able to use the Grid, operational and support centre schemes and organisation, and finally feasibility studies and roadmaps for the integration of the SEE to the European Research Area (ERA) via an extended Pan-European Grid infrastructure.

Chemistry Grid

Chemistry GRID and its Application for Air Pollution Forecast, past

Full name Chemistry GRID and its Application for Air Pollution Forecast
Homepage not specified
Start date 2003
End date 2004
Description Recently, Grid systems are becoming more and more popular. In such systems, large number or very powerful resources are interconnected in order to solve complex problems. The aim of this project is to investigate three important aspects (Establishment of a Chemistry Grid: using the Grid for supporting a specific science area, the Grid as a very high performance computational resource, the Grid as an informatics system for supporting complex collaborative work and its application for air pollution forecasting (elaboration of smog alarm plans) of Grids and to achieve practical results in those areas.

Development of Hungarian Grid System

Development of Hungarian Grid System, past

Full name Development of Hungarian Grid System
Homepage not specified
Start date 2003
End date 2005
Description Increasing demands of advanced scientific research can be fulfilled only by exploiting existing resources in a more efficient way by means of on-the-fly coupling and dynamic on-demand allocation of resources. Grid technology aims to provide a solution for this problem. In long term, the ultimate goal is that any information technology related resource or service can be accessible for the Hungarian researchers via the Internet just as Web services are available for everybody nowadays. In order to ensure that Hungary will not drop behind in this important area, a proper Grid infrastructure must be established in Hungary that would be accessible at the same quality level for all scientists and researchers independently of the physical locations of their institutes. Such Grid will first consists of homogeneous local Grid systems established within and between Hungarian universities, colleges and research institutes and it will be extended towards a heterogeneous global system later on.


JGrid, past

Full name An Integrated Graphical Application Development and Grid Execution Environment Based on Jini
Homepage not specified
Start date 2003
End date 2004
Description The result of this project was a prototype of the Jini Grid systems and the graphical Web service application development environment, that would work and support the Hungarian Grid Infrastructure. The prototypes and the know-how will be placed into the public domain and could be used freely by members of the Hungarian academic community, and would help in the exploitation of grid technology.


APART 2, past

Full name Automatic Performance Analysis: Real Tools
Homepage not specified
Start date 2002
End date 2004
Description This project was based on the results of the Esprit Working Group APART 1 on Automatic Performance Analysis, which was being funded until December 2000. APART 2 was extend the specification techniques developed in APART 1 and will investigate a broad range of implementation technologies. Besides collaboration among the national projects, the working group was investigate requirements and techniques for performance analysis in grid environments.
