The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) delivers integrated computing services to European researchers, driving innovation and enabling new solutions to answer the big questions of tomorrow. More about the infrastructure.
EGI’s mission is to allow researchers of all fields to make the most out of the latest computing technologies for the benefit of their research. More about grid computing applications to science.
EGI is a federation of over 350 resource centres and coordinated by EGI.eu, a not-for-profit foundation created to manage the infrastructure on behalf of its participants: National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) and European Intergovernmental Research Organisations (EIROs). EGI.eu is governed by a Council of 35 participant countries and institutions. More about EGI's governance structure and services provided by EGI.eu.
EGI-Integrated Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Research in Europe is a four-year project helping to establish EGI as an e-infrastructure to support research and innovation in Europe. EGI-InSPIRE is a collaborative effort involving dozens of partners in Europe and beyond.
The project is co-funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme (contract number: RI-261323) to help lay down the EGI operational and support processes, as well as to build a sustainable e-infrastructure, independent from project cycles.
By the time EGI-InSPIRE finishes in 2014, EGI will be a sustainable and dependable provider of computing resources for European scientists and researchers. More about the EGI-InSPIRE project.
