Collaborations in European Programs, except FP7

  • CoreGRID ERCIM Working Group, since 2009. The CoreGRID Symposium held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, 25-26 August 2008 marked the end of the ERCIM-managed CoreGRID Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission. There, it was decided to re-launch CoreGRID as a self-sustained ERCIM Working Group covering research activities on both Grid and Service Computing while maintaining the momentum of the European collaboration on Grid research.
