SEE-GRID

SEE-GRID (South Eastern European Grid) is a European Commission initiative, a DG INFSO - M Specific Support Action aiming to assist the participation of the S.E. European states to the pan-European (EGEE) and worldwide Grid initiatives. It concentrates on establishing a seamless and interoperable pilot-Grid infrastructure that will expand and support the European Research Area (ERA) in the region. The interconnection of the regional infrastructure to the pan-European and worldwide Grid initiatives will translate into benefits for the smaller, less-resourced sites in SE Europe to access computing power that would otherwise be unaffordable. In this perspective, the SEE-GRID initiative will ease the digital divide and release the scientific & productive talents of the region and will allow equal participation of the targeted countries in pan-European Grid efforts in the immediate future. The project involves the National Grid Initiatives of Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Serbia- Montenegro, and Turkey.
