Having been active for three years, CoreGRID is now committed to move further towards sustainable integration and to enhance the economic fall-outs of Grid research progress. In particular, the growing involvement of industry representatives will be essential to exploit the full potential of the latest Grid research results.
CoreGRID is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development through a grant of €8.2 million assigned for a duration of four years.
Operated as the European Grid Research Laboratory, the CoreGRID Network is conducting research in the field of Grid and peer-to-peer technologies by integrating expertise and promoting scientific and technological excellence both within and beyond the Grid community. The Network gathers more than 340 world-class researchers and PhD students into an ambitious joint programme of activities, which is structured around six strategic and complementary research areas, organised as Institutes: Knowledge and Data Management; Programming Model; Architectural Issues: Scalability, Dependability, Adaptability ; Grid Information, Resource and Workflow Monitoring Services; Resource Management and Scheduling; and Grid Systems, Tools and Environments.
Through the organisation of this Symposium, CoreGRID definitely took the lead in presenting academic research results from EU initiatives and international projects in Grid research and technologies, and in promoting commercially relevant and promising research in Grid computing.
Held in conjunction with the Euro-Par 2007 event, the CoreGRID Symposium covered the following topics:- Service Level Agreement and Quality of Service
According to Dr Thierry Priol (INRIA) in charge of CoreGRID’s scientific co-ordination and of the Symposium’s organisation, “Through this initiative, CoreGRID increases the visibility of Grid research and is more than ever aiming at integrating and coordinating Grid research efforts in close cooperation with industry, aligning both research and industry towards the construction of a sustainable European-wide Grid research lab.”
As CoreGRID now enters its fourth year of activity, it has substantially enhanced the dissemination of Grid research results, with a view to foster its scientific excellence and sustainability.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
