WissGrid - Project details (Grid für die Wissenschaft - WissGrid)

WissGrid unites the first five academic community grids of D-Grid (AstroGrid-D, C3 Grid, HepGrid, MediGrid und TextGrid).
As a D-Grid project, WissGrid’s objective is to establish long-term organisational and technical D-Grid structures for the academic world.
WissGrid combines the heterogeneous needs from a variety of scientific disciplines and develops concepts for the long-term sustainable use of the organisational and technical grid infrastructure. In this context, the project aims to strengthen the organisational cooperation of scientists in the grid and to lower the entry barriers for new community grids.
Three key tasks have been identified from WissGrid’s objectives:

  • Operational model for academic grid users
  • Blueprints for new community grids
  • Long-term storage for research data
