Happy 13th Birthday, EGI!

Updated 08/02/2023

Today, we celebrate our 13th anniversary as an organisation that empowers researchers with seamless access to computing services, resources and expertise to collaborate and conduct world-class research and innovation.


The EGI Foundation was established in Amsterdam in 2010 as the coordinating body of the EGI Federation to build an integrated pan-European infrastructure to primarily support European research communities.
EGI was a significant infrastructure right from the beginning. The total number of CPU hours delivered by the EGI HTC federated infrastructure in 2022 exceeded 7 billion!
The EGI ecosystem, counting data centres from 43 countries all over the world, serves over 84.000 researchers in their intensive data analysis. It is the quality and diversity of our services, know-how, training opportunities and other activities that attract more users every year. The most significant scientific communities in EGI in 2022 are Medical and Health Sciences, High Energy Physics, and Engineering and Technology. The most tangible indicator of our contribution to excellent science is the number of publications and other research products enabled by our infrastructure. We are proud to say the EGI supported over 35.000 publications throughout the last 13 years.

All this was possible thanks to the EGI Federation with 29 EGI Council participants, the entire EGI community behind, our partners and project collaborators. We want to thank you all. We hope we will soon meet in Poznań during the EGI2023 conference. Indeed, collaboration is going to be central to this event.


A very happy birthday to the EGI community and we look forward to more exciting years ahead!
