The DORII project is supported by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme(FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. RI-211693. The project aims to deploy e-Infrastructure for new scientific communities, where on the one hand ICT technology is still not present at the appropriate level today, while on the other hand it is demanded to empower the communities' daily work. The main focus of the DORII project is on groups of scientific users with experimental equipment and instrumentation that are currently not or only partially integrated in the European e-Infrastructures. At present, following selected scientific areas are represented in the project:
- Earthquake community (with various sensor networks)
- Environmental science community
- Experimental science community Working closely with end-users, solutions will be put in place that build upon the success of past and ongoing projects in such areas as remote instrumentation GRIDCC, RINGrid, interactivity, software frameworks for application developers, g-Eclipse and advanced networking technologies (GN2) with EGEE based middleware.

Relation with EGEE:
DORII relies on the EGEE gLite middleware for all standard Grid components, extending it and building on top of it. This concern components like UI,WMS,CE,WN,SE. The added value are for example Instrument Element(IE) or the Virtual Control Room(VCR), which respectively introduce the control of the instrumentation and a specific collaborative tool. The IE is a web-service-based element that gives access the instruments under its control. The IE, integrated into the EGEE e-infrastructure, extends its functionality to the interactive control and monitoring of remote instrumentation. Most of DORII computing resources are provided by partners that will share their sites with EGEE, and that's why the interoperability with EGEE is a key point. This means that our middleware will be available for download and installation on top of glite allowing the users to interact with instruments and also to profit from a more interactive and parallel oriented Grid infrastructure.

Deploying and unifying the NMR e-Infrastructure in System Biology

e-NMR aims at deploying and unifying the NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) computational infrastructure in system biology, a project funded under the 7th framework programme of the European Union. NMR plays an important role in life sciences (biomolecular NMR), and structural biology in particular, at both European and international levels. Our main objective is to optimize and extend the use of the NMR Research Infrastructures of EU-NMR through the implementation of an e-Infrastructure (e-NMR infrastructure) in order to provide the biomolecular NMR user community with a platform integrating and streamlining the computational approaches necessary for NMR data analysis and structural modelling. Access to the e-NMR infrastructure will be provided through a portal integrating commonly NMR software and grid technology.

Relation with EGEE:
One of the objectives of e-NMR project is to deploy and support an interoperable grid infrastructure at the three NMR laboratories (BMRZ, BCBR and CIRMMP) to be later integrated with EGEE. The grid infrastructure is based on the gLite middleware.

The EUAsiaGrid project contributes to the aims of the EU Research Infrastructures FP7 Programme by "promoting international interoperation between similar infrastructures with the aim of reinforcing the global relevance and impact of European e-Infrastructures". Taking advantage of existing global Grid technologies, with the specific emphasis on the European experience with the gLite middleware and applications, the EUAsiaGrid project plans to encourage federating approaches across scientific disciplines and communities. Acting as a support action and composed of 15 partners from 12 countries, EUAsiaGrid aims to define and implement a policy to promote the gLite middleware developed within the EU EGEE projects, across Asian countries. To enable regional collaboration, as well as collaboration with European scientific communities building on top of a common EGEE middleware platform, its main action is to:
– support scientific communities through help with application porting and deployment,
– provide training to widen dissemination of the technology know-how
– monitor the results and feed back into policy definition.

Relation with EGEE:
The EUAsiaGrid project aims to support the dissemination and training policy of the EGEE Grid services and infrastructure for e-Science in the Asia region. The initiative of EUAsiaGrid intends to build on and exploit such expertise to promote Grid technology, in particular the gLite middleware and EGEE infrastructure in Asian countries, working in synergy with members of the EGEE II Asian Federation, the EU-IndiaGrid and EUChinaGRID projects and using the organizational expertise that will be developed within the EGI_DS project. In EGEE II, the Asian Federation has extended the EGEE infrastructure and technology to many of the more developed countries in Asia. By leveraging the work done in the EGEE project, EUAsiaGrid can further promote e-Science by disseminating the EGEE middleware, by providing technical training and through the creation of user networks, via support of applications. This can enable regional collaboration, as well as collaboration with European scientific communities by building on top of a common EGEE middleware platform. EUAsiaGrid is committed to solidify European Grid technology in the region and easing the digital divide by establishing collaborations with other important Asian countries.

Coordinator: QMUL
Project Coordinator: Sarah Pearce
Grid Outreach Co-ordinator: Cristy Burne


GridTalk bring the success stories of Europe's e-infrastructure to a wider audience. The project co-ordinate the dissemination outputs of EGEE and other European grid computing efforts, ensuring their results and influence are reported in print and online.

Relation with EGEE:
GridTalk works closely with EGEE to publicise the role and achivements of Grid computing.

VO Admin:Szabolcs Hernath
Project Leader:Dezso Horvath


The goal of the VO is twofold: firstly, to allow Grid users of Hungarian academic and educational institutes to perform the computing activities relevant for their research and thus function as a catch-all VO for all the Hungarian participants that do not (yet) have an established VO in their respective field of research. Secondly, it is intended to provide an EGEE testing environment for Hungarian research communities that show interest in starting their own Virtual Organizations.

Relation with EGEE:
Hungrid, besides being a national catch-all VO, is the primary testing and preparation environment for prospective Hungarian VOs. It is therefore one of the main tools that enable the EGEE model to gain new successful communities and participants in Hungary.

UK National Grid Service

The National Grid Service (NGS) aims to provide coherent electronic access for UK researchers to all computational and data based resources and facilities required to carry out their research, independent of resource or researcher location.

Relation with EGEE:The NGS aims to provide access to research resources outside the UK through partnership arrangements with organisations such as EGEE and Teragrid in the US.It is in the provision of user support and training that the NGS and EGEE currently work most closely together. The NGS provides the EGEE helpdesk and user support in the UK. The two organisations also collaborate on training and outreach to the UK community.
