News release

UK researchers get connected

Researchers connected to the UK's national grid service can now carry
out long term collaborative research with peers across Europe through an
improved network.

UK scientists can tap into the new European grid initiative, known as
EGI.eu, to access computing power, data, software and storage space in
over 50 countries.

EGI.eu does not own or operate any computers, but co-ordinates thousands
of clusters of computers hosted in university departments and data
centres, national hubs and even desktop PCs.

The UK, along with the other nations, will contribute resources and make
contributions of funding each year to a common pot to ensure that the
initiative is sustainable.

By creating this improved network it is planned that the Europe-wide
research community will make significant breakthroughs in data-intensive
scientific research previously considered too time consuming to
consider, such as medical analysis.

Dr Malcolm Read, executive secretary of JISC, said: "JISC is pleased to
be contributing to this significant European infrastructure initiative
for the UK. EGI is a particularly important shared service enabling
valuable research to be conducted cost effectively."

The UK's national grid initiative is made up of the National Grid
Service and GridPP projects funded by JISC, the Science and Technology
Facilities Council and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research
Council.

Dr. Andrew Richards, National Grid Service director, said: "Grid
computing is already having an incredible impact on how researchers are
investigating and solving highly complex problems. Using grid computing
in their research has been shown to save researchers time allowing for
more rapid production and publication of results."
