White Rose Grid e-Science Centre of Excellence

White Rose Grid


The proposal is for the White Rose Grid (WRG) to be recognised as an e-Science Centre of Excellence. The WRG is a primary example of an Inter­University Grid that is a natural extension of a campus Grid. It is sufficiently large to demonstrate the political, social and technical issues of a Grid but also sufficiently small so that real progress can be, and is being, made on addressing these issues.

The White Rose Universities have invested over £3m in the WRG. The HPC resources are available to users across all three White Rose institutions via a prototype Grid Portal.

The WRG supports a range of e-Science projects that build on our core competencies in Real-time Distributed Design Support and Diagnostic Systems and Real-time Distributed Collaborative Visualisation Services.

It is planned to expand over the next year the use of the Grid to a number of key applications such as bio-technology, engineering (e.g. aerospace and tissue engineering), Green Chemistry etc. This will often be in partnership with other e-Science Centres.

The WRG has secured funding from Yorkshire Forward to expand the use of the WRG within the Yorkshire and Humberside region.
