EU Information Day 25 03 2003 EDG status 2 The EU DataGrid Project 9.8 M Euros EU funding over 3 years, twice as much from partners 90% for middleware and applications (HEP, Earth Obs. and Bio Med.) Three year phased developments & demos (2001-2003) Latest News: 2 nd annual project review successfully passed in Feb 2003! Total of 21 partners Research and Academic institutes as well as industrial companies Related projects and activities: DataTAG (2002-2003) CrossGrid (2002-2004) GRIDSTART (2002-2004) Grace (2002-2004)
EU Information Day 25 03 2003 EDG status 3 Genomic Exploration Earth Observation High Energy Physics more and more scientists begin to use the EDG middleware and testbed, relying on Grid technology to solve huge data challenges we are delighted that the EDG project is already releasing production quality Grid middleware. It will allow us to start regular testing of our extreme computational requirements on a real Grid infrastructure, and could have a significant impact on how we plan and develop our experiment An LHC scientist Applications
