across Europe and India
The vision of a worldwide Grid for Research is embraced by both Europe and India and responds to the need for scientific collaborations in a networked world to address grand global challenges. This forms the basis of the Knowledge Society of the future supporting a wide-range of communities leveraging ICT infrastructures for complex problem solving to advance research across borders.
EUIndiaGrid2 capitalises on the achievements of EUIndiaGrid by acting as a bridge across European and Indian e-infrastructures to foster evolution in these regions and to ensure sustainable scientific, educational and technological collaboration.
e-Infrastructures across Europe and India
Find out more about EU-IndiaGrid2 and the European and Indian Grid infrastructures outlook. This downloadable booklet is introduced by Professor Raghavan, Scientific Secretary, Office of PSA to Gvmt of India and Chief Architect and Chairman of the NKN Technical Advisory Committee with a foreword by Kostas Glinos, Head of Unit, ‘GÉANT and e-Infrastructures’ European Commission, DG Information and Society.

“I am happy to learn about the second phase EU-IndiaGrid2 project – Sustainable e-Infrastructures across Europe and India. The first phase has been immensely beneficial for a variety of scientific disciplines including Biology, Earth Science and the Indian collaboration for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The successful working of the initial phase of the multi-gigabit National Knowledge Network (NKN), Indian Certification Authority, and participation in Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN3) phase 3 are some of the important building blocks for supporting virtual research communities in India and their collaboration work with other countries.” - Dr R. Chidambaram, Principal scientific advisor to the Government of India Chandigarth
