How are researchers using the European Grid Infrastructure?

The grid computing resources provided by the European Grid Infrastructure federation (EGI) are used by scientists and researchers across Europe and beyond. Discover a collection of the best research case studies showing how grid computing is helping their work.

Browse through the collection of the best research case studies published in the EGI website between 2010-2014.You can also access the Research stories by scientific field.

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.

EGI is a federation of 39 National Grid Initiatives (NGIs) from European countries and European Intergovernmental Research Organisations.

What does EGI do?

  • Speeds research processes which are data and compute intensive
  • Makes it easy for global scientific communities to collaborate
  • Simplifies how data and results are shared, discovered and re-use

EGI is supported by the e-Infrastructure EGI-Engage project, co-funded by the European Union (EU) under the Horizon 2020 programme.
