P.S. Dhekne is A renowned expert, nationally as well as internationally, and officer of the Principal Scientific Adviser to Indian Government. During the EU-IndiaGrid2 Workshop on Research Applications of High Speed Connectivity Across Europe, India and the Asia-Pacific Area, 24TH August 2011, he provided an overview of latest status of NKN, its current applications, various Grid initiatives in India and it’s migration to NKN, describing few collaborative applications deployed using NKN through GEANT & TEIN3.
In Autumn 2010 a group of researchers of the Homi Bhabha National Institute carried out an experiment for protein crystallography in Grenoble, France directly from their laboratories in Mumbai, operating robots in a French laboratory almost 10.000 km away from their lab in Mumbai. On 24 August at the APAN32 2011 conference, New Delhi, a “CHAIN - EU-IndiaGrid2 Workshop will showcase this and a number of other experiments carried out under the umbrella of the EU-IndiaGrid2 EC funded project.
ERNET (Education and Research Network) has led the operational support for the regional Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) network in India and is also currently involved in migrating this network to NKN.
Dipak Singh, Director of ERNET India, Department of Information Technology, and EU-IndiaGrid2 Principle Project Coordinator, gives his opinion about the steps undertaken towards a worldwide connectivity of eInfrastructures.
With climate change high on the political agenda, the “Conference on the role of e-Infrastructures for Climate Change Research”, held in Trieste at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) 16-20 May 2011, addressed this theme bringing together scientists, policy makers and international actors to address climate change from scientific, economic and political perspectives.
The article was published by iSGTW few days before the conference on "The Role of e-infrastructures for climate change reasearch" in Trieste, Italy, in May 2011. iSGTW was also media partner of the conference together with eScienceTalk and GridCast.
NKN published on its portal this article about the “Remote Data Collection Facility" experiment performed at the experimental station on the FIP beam line (French beam line for Investigation of Proteins), a great example of extended grid infrastructure used for scientific purposes and of using fast Internet access to carry out remote experiments for protein crystallography studies.

ECRI 2010 Conference EU-IndiaGrid2 Poster
EU-IndiaGrid2 2010-2012 capitalises on the achievements of EU-IndiaGrid 2007-2009 by acting as a bridge across European and Indian e-infrastructures to foster evolution in these regions to ensure sustainable scientific, educational and technological collaboration.
One of the direct links the European initiatives have had with the Indian e-Infrastructure landscape is Professor S. V. Raghavan.
EU-IndiaGrid2 caught up with Professor Raghavan during the e-IRG event in order, December 2010, to find out more about the Indian National Knowledge Network.
Advancing the Frontiers of Scientific Resaearch
Launch Event – Indian Institute of Technology Delhi – 11/1/2010
Climate change and world-wide health threats are two of the grand global challenges which can only be effectively addressed through co-operation on a worldwide level. Investment in e-Infrastructures is enabling collaborative research across national boundaries.
Widening the Grid benefits across continents
International collaboration is a must for effective global research and Grid technologies have a key role. Both India and Europe will benefit from strengthened research links says Alberto Masoni, EU-IndiaGrid’s Project Manager, who expands on his initiative’s role in fostering scientific cooperation

Feature - EU-IndiaGrid: Building a Partnership Across Hemispheres
Over the last 10 years, India has posted an average annual growth rate of more than 7%. India’s success in the IT field has been especially dazzling; it is already a major exporter of software services and software engineers.
CLIMA: ANCHE INDIA E CINA ENTRANO NELLA SUPERGRID
(Agi) - Roma - Una nuova rete di supercomputer collegati tra loro per elaborare l’enorme quantità di dati che arrivano da laboratori di ricerca sull’atmosfera, il clima, la geologia, la biologia, la fisica delle alte energie e la scienza dei materiali. La scienza di oggi, e ancor piu’ quella del futuro, produce enormi quantità di informazioni.
EU-IndiaGrid - paving the ground for a Grid enabled eScience Community
European and Indian Grid experts met during the EU-IndiaGrid conference on 13-14 December 2007, which took place in Bangalore in conjunction with e-Science 2007. The event brought together 150 participants from academia and business sectors and showcased the benefits of the EU-IndiaGrid Infrastructure for scientific researchers across Europe and India.
