What is Grid@Asia

Please dowload the Grid@Asia report ! This document lists existing running programmes and research projects on Grid technologies in Europe, China and South Korea.

The European commission Framework Programme 7 was launched in Helsinki in November 2006. This new seven year programme will continue to invest on Grid research activities through two units, namely Unit D3 Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering and Unit F3 Research Intrastructure .

Advanced Grid Research Workshops through European and Asian Co-operation

The Grid@Asia project was de signed to foster collaboration in Grid research and technologies between the European Union and Asian countries with a particular focus on China and South Korea.

The project is implemented through three principle steps:
  1. Identification of Chinese and South Korea key players in Grid research and technologies,
  2. Organisation of focused workshops around EU/Asia research and industrial agendas
  3. Establishment of sustainable cooperation and dissemination activities.
Relying on a core of leading European Grid research institutes Grid@Asia defined a joint research agenda to address international Grid priorities. This initiative was relying on the local support of the Asian partners to ensure on-site organisation, enhanced visibility and the participation of high-profile industrial and scientific delegations.

By strengthening cooperation between both communities, Grid@Asia provided Europe with a clear picture of the Grid community in those two Asian countries and prepared a reliable ground for sustainable and long-term collaboration.

Through weaving additional links with leading Asian Grid research communities, Grid@Asia supported long term international cooperation, in particular through the integration of Asian expertises with leading European Grid initiatives within the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union (such as Networks of Excellence, Integrated Projects, STREPS, etc.) and later on within the forthcoming 7th Framework Programme.

This will position the European Grid community as a leading centre of excellence, enrich European expertise in the field and support the adoption of common Grid standards worldwide.
