Workshop on ERA and Grid Research

Date: 17 July 2003
Location: Brussels, Belgium (DG Information Society, European Commission, 33 Ave. de Beaulieu, Room 00/54)

Context

Today several Grid Research initiatives are on-going or planned at national and on Community level. The various endeavours look rather disparate and fragmented. At the invitation of the Commission services of DG Information Society and Media - F2 "Grids for complex problem solving", 17 delegates representing funding authorities and research organisations competent on Grid technologies from 10 Member States and Accession Countries met on 17 July 2003 in Brussels. The objective of the meeting was to discuss opportunities for wider collaboration between national Grid research initiatives and the FPVI IST Strategic Objective on "Grid based systems for complex problem solving" in the context of the emerging European Research Area (ERA) towards the idea of launching an ERA Pilot Action on Grid Research.

Conclusions

Confirming the need for better co-operation and exchange among national and EU programmes related to Grid Research, the participants welcomed the initiative of the European Commission for the meeting. They expressed a genuine interest in, and enthusiastic support for the creation of an ERA pilot on Grid Research. There was a broad consensus on the relevance, importance and general objectives of such an ERA pilot. All representatives have endorsed the need for further action.
