The EDGeS and SEE-GRID-SCI projects have signed an agreement to connect the SEE-GRID infrastructure, implemented in South-East Europe, to other grids using the EDGeS Bridge technology. Also under the agreement, SEE-GRID-SCI and EDGeS will collaborate on application porting, and on dissemination and training activities.

"The collaboration between SEE-GRID-SCI and EDGeS is a good example of how sustainable pan-European grid e-Infrastructures can be built out of national and regional resources," said Peter Kacsuk, EDGeS project manager.

In the collaboration, the SEE-GRID-SCI infrastructure will join many desktop grids already connected via EDGeS 3G, including the SZTAKI desktop grid in Hungary, AlmereGrid in The Netherlands, IberCivis in Spain, and the University of Westminster grid in the UK, and of course the EGEE and ELAA service grids.

The two projects' application departments will cooperate on getting applications to work on the combined grid infrastructure. The projects will also coordinate their dissemination and training activities, starting with a lecture by a SEE-GRID-SCI member at the EDGeS-EGEE Grid Summer School this coming July in Budapest.

"Leveraging computing resources over national borders as well as over technologies is a key to success for a pan-European e-Infrastructure", said Ognjen Prnjat, SEE-GRID-SCI project manager.
