1 Mário Campolargo DG INFSO F3 Research Infrastructure 25 March 2003 Grid enabled Research Infrastructure for Europe - an FP6 perspective - Grids Information Day

2  FP6 – short introduction  GÉANT and Grids testbeds as a basis for an e-infrastructure  eInfrastructure - a vision for Europe  Objectives of the workprogramme on Research Infrastructure  Conclusions Contents

3 FP6 structure INTEGRATING EUROPEAN RESEARCH Genomic & biotechnology for health Sustainable development Nanotechnologies, intelligent mat., new production processes Aeronautics & space Food safety & health risks PRIORITY THEMATIC AREASANTICIPATING S/T NEEDS Specific international co-operation activities JRC activities Research & innovation STRUCTURING THE ERA Human resources & mobility Science & society Specific SME activities Coordination of research activities Development of research / innovation policies STRENGTHENING THE FOUNDATIONS OF ERA Research for policy support Frontier research, unexpected developments Citizens & governance in the knowledge society Information Society Technologies Research infrastructures

4 Research Infrastructures Visible facts from FP5 on support for Research Infrastructures:  GÉANT / international connectivity - Eumedis, ALIS, TEIN, Russia,...  Large scale experimentation on IPv6  Grids pilots involving leading Research Centers  High political visibility - EP, Council, eEurope 2002  Doubling budget in FP6 for GÉANT and Grids Infrastructures International dimension GÉANT network IPv6 Testbeds R&D Grids Testbeds Optical Testbeds

5 e-Infrastructure  deployment of the most performant research backbone network in the world (GÉANT) – boosting the transfer of information GÉANT Grids pilots IPv6  piloting of new and particularly powerful forms of distributed computing – Grids – boosting the processing of information Two key aspects for the future: Research Infrastructures

6 The “super-vehicle” for information transfer 155Mbps 7,5Gbps EUMEDIS ALIS 20 Mbps TEIN NeDAP SPONGE SEEREN GÉANT  World leading Research Network  Speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s  Connecting more than 3100 Universities and R&D centers  Over 32 countries across Europe  Connectivity to NA, Japan, …

7 The “super-machinery” for information processing Computing power: >>20 teraflop/sec/equivalent to 100.000 PCs Co-operative science: among 2,000 scientist in the world CERN  The Large Hadron Collider Project (CERN) DATAGRID Flexible control and sharing of distributed resources  Current pilots are bringing Grids from the laboratory bench into the real world.  Several application areas – high energy physics, earth/environment, biology, industrial simulations, etc Grids

8 Moving towards an e-Infrastructure IPv6 Grids GÉANT Grids middleware

9 Moving towards an e-Infrastructure e-Infrastructure In FP6, deployment of a Grid empowered eInfrastructure

10 Vision - creating an e-infrastructure… e-Infrastructure (Grids empowered) e-Infrastructure (Grids empowered) security mobility semantic web. automatic management broadband e-Learning e-Business aeronautics genomics environment astronomy e-Health e-Science Grid

11 Linking to policies Research e-Infrastructures:  “corner-stone” of ERA  “spear-head” of an “eEurope infrastructure” (e.g. broadband plus)  “integrator” of National Infrastructures  powerful “instrument” for International cooperation  … cohesion, cooperation, standards, industrial, etc…

12  In the Specific Programme on "Structuring the European Research Area”  2.3. Communication Network Development “The objective of this scheme in support of existing research infrastructures is to create a denser network between related initiatives, in particular by establishing a high-capacity and high- speed communications network for all researchers in Europe (GÉANT) and specific high performance Grids and test-beds (Grids).” FP6 - Research Infrastructure

13  2.3. Communication Network Development focus on:  High-capacity and high-speed communications network for all researchers in Europe (GÉANT)  High performance Grids infrastructures  Test-beds (within the IST priority) FP6 - Research Infrastructure

14 FP6 – focus on GÉANT  GÉANT – maintain and capitalise on worldwide leadership on Research Networks  FP6 GÉANT network will represent a significant step forward in terms of  services,  communities served,  geographical scope,  bandwidth  and pioneering new technologies

15  These infrastructures should exhibit production-level performance capabilities and constitute themselves distributed facilities at gigabit/terabit scales (in terms of computing, storage and communication power).  Grids – moving from experimental pilots to stable provision of services  Deployment of Grids-empowered infrastructures to the Research Community in all scientific disciplines. FP6 – focus on Grids

16  DG INFSO has established an ambitious plan to implement the objectives identified in FP6 for Grids.  Two complementary objectives being pursued – Grids for complex problem solving and Grids infrastructures.  With the work on GÉANT and Grids (Research Infrastructure in close cooperation with IST), the European Commission expects to deploy an e-Infrastructure for all Research Communities, thus contributing to the fast deployment of the European Research Area!  Research Infrastructure require more than technology… require policies! We are ready to cooperate with Member States and you, to devise and implement them!  Good projects are key to the success of FP6! Conclusions
