The CrossGrid Project



The main objective of the CrossGrid project is to extend the GRID environment across Europe, and to a new category of applications.

The Cross Grid project will develop, implement and exploit new Grid components for interactive compute and data intensive applications like simulation and visualisation for surgical procedures, flooding crisis team decision support systems, distributed data analysis in high-energy physics, air pollution combined with weather forecasting. The elaborated methodology, generic application architecture, programming environment, and new Grid services will be validated and tested thoroughly on the Cross Grid test bed, with an emphasis on a user-friendly environment. The work will be done in close collaboration with the Grid Forum and the Data Grid project to profit from their results and experience, and to obtain full interoperability. This will result in the further extension of the Grid across eleven European countries.
