1 Enabling Grids for E-science and industry in Europe Fabrizio Gagliardi EGEE Proposal Coordinator

2 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 2 EGEE vision: Enabling Grids for E-science in Europe Goal Create a general European Grid production quality infrastructure on top of present and future EU RN infrastructure Build on EU and EU member states major investment in Grid Technology International connections (US and AP) Several pioneering prototype results Large Grid development community in EU Goal can be achieved for about 100m/4 years on top of the national and regional initiatives Approach Leverage current and planned national and regional Grid programmes Work closely with relevant industrial Grid developers, NRNs and US-AP projects EGEE Applications Geant network

3 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 3 Why EGEE? The Historical Analogy Prior to the EU Geant program, there was in Europe a multitude of exploratory projects in networking technology. Geant was truly production oriented, and brought European telecom operators actively into the picture In a similar way, EGEE can ensure preservation of current investments in European Grid R&D, extending the present infrastructure and focussing all activities towards establishing a production quality Grid

4 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 4 Why EGEE? The Societal Impact Access to a production quality GRID will change the way science and much else is done in Europe A genetic scientist at a conference, inspired by a talk she hears, will be able to launch a complex biomolecular simulation from her mobile phone A team of engineering students will be able to run the latest 3D rendering programs from their laptops using the Grid An international network of scientists will be able to model a new flood of the Danube in real time, using meteorological and geological data from several centres across Europe

5 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 5 Why EGEE? The Political Context Current Grid R&D projects run out within 18 months The EGEE partners have already made major progress in aligning national and regional Grid R&D efforts, in preparation for EGEE Launching EGEE now will preserve the current strong momentum of the European Grid community, and the enthusiasm of the hundreds of young European researchers already involved in EU Grid projects

6 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 6 EGEE Approach Most of partners building national and regional Grid consortia to participate in EGEE Condition to participate in EGEE is to have already an established Grid activity or be an established Grid technology centre EGEE overall project (100 M Euros needed EU funding for 4 years) will need to submit staggered proposals to respond to several separate EU calls Communication Network Development Call opened on December 17 th and will close on May 6 th Participation to EGEE through national or regional Grid consortia

10 EU Information Day EGEE Plans 10 Conclusions The EU DataGrid project has successfully fulfilled its role of EU Grid flagship project in collaboration with several other EU and international projects Essential to keep the momentum and the current lead in production Grids in Europe Important to build an international cooperation between European and US/AP Grid infrastructure projects The scientific user communities are already international (HEP is an excellent example) and so the computing resources and most of the experimental instruments EGEE proposes the right framework and plans to accomplish the above objectives
