    • Potential for co-funding arrangements

  • Realising ERA will require

    • New thinking: more strategic and goal oriented

    • New approach: integration, concentration, critical mass and flexibility

    • New scope: taking account of the international dimension of RTD

      • greater awareness of who’s doing what

Mobile user and worker scenarios

Call 2: Applications and Services for the mobile User & Worker

  • Increased importance of:

    • mobility and location independence

    • time critical and ad-hoc collaboration (get together to solve a problem, a task, a business opportunity)

    • context awareness (geo-social context: language, culture etc., specific setting: time, place)

Call 2

GRID-based systems for complex problem solving

45 MEuro

  • Key Objectives & Breakthroughs

    • computing and knowledge Grids and peer-to-peer approaches to solving complex problems

  • Research Tasks

    • next generation GRID : security, programming environments, resource management; business models for new services, customisable middleware, interoperability with existing GRID and Webservices

    • enabling application technologies : modelling, simulation, datamining, visualisation, process control, remote operation; collaborative working in dynamic virtual organisations


Call 2 grid based systems for solving complex problems

Call 2: GRID-based Systems for solving complex problems

  • “Objectives:

  • – To expand the potential of the Grid and peer-to-peer approaches to solving complex problemswhich can not be solved with current technologies in application fields such as, but not limited to, industrial design, engineering and manufacturing, health, genomics and drug design, environment, critical infrastructures, energy, business and finance, and new media.

  • – To overcome present architectural and design limitations hampering the use and wider deployment of computing and knowledge Grids and to enrich its capabilities by including new functionalities required for complex problem solving. This should help the larger uptake of Grid type architectures and extend the concept from computation Grids to knowledge Grids, eventually leading to a “semantic Grid”.”


Call 2 grid based systems for solving complex problems 2 main focal points

Call 2: GRID-based Systems for solving complex problems2 Main Focal Points

  • Focus 1:

    • “Architecture, design and development of the next generation Gridbeyond extensions of existing technologies, leading to open standards, and including security built-in at all levels, programming environments, resource management; economic and business models for new services, customisable middleware, interoperability with existing Grid and Webservices. An integrated and comprehensive approach including stake holders from all relevant levels is required.”

  • The IP must meet the Call text clearly

  • Impact analysis

  • Covering the innovation process; interactions

  • Technology, verification and dissemination

  • Do not bet only on IP (check STREPs)

  • Size?

Some practical aspects

  • Management more important than before, crisis management to be described!

  • IPs something entirely new, high competition, “good” not enough, very good the minimal
