The European Grid Initiative

The main objective of the European Grid Initiative (EGI) is to establish a sustainable grid service for the European research area, through the creation of a long-term, pan-European grid infrastructure based in National Grid Initiatives (NGIs). A new coordinating organization, EGI.eu has recently been established in Amsterdam. Its central role will be to facilitate the interaction and collaboration between the national grid infrastructures. Together EGI.eu and the NGIs will operate and further develop the pan-European grid infrastructure, in order to guarantee its long-term availability for performing research and innovative work, enabling optimal sharing of computing and data resources, across Europe.
