Global networks are the glue that holds together Scientific Research Communities around the world. Networks such as GÉANT (The Pan-European Education and Research Network), TEIN3 (The Trans-Eurasia Information Network) and the NKN (National Knowledge Network of India) are all key to this process.
Two main grids exist in India – the Regional component of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG ) and GARUDA, the India National Grid Initiative. Both initiatives strongly rely on the development of national and international connectivity. In this respect fundamental steps have been taken and impressive targets have been achieved.
A series of European initiatives are involved in deploying and operating the European-wide e-Infrastructure. These initiatives cooperate with national programs at European and extra-European level. Eu-IndiaGrid supports and fosters collaboration between researchers from Europe and India in a wide range of scientific areas.
