Abstract: The NW-GRID is funded by the NWDA as a regional resource for the NorthWest of England and initially involves a core of compute clusters at Daresbury Laboratory and the Universities of Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester. The middleware infrastructure developed as part of the eMinerals project has been ported to the NW-GRID, providing a set of tools that seamlessly integrate computation and data and metadata management. This paper describes how several different science projects have exploited this infrastructure to undertake some novel science that would have been difficult, if not impossible, otherwise.
