|EUDAT project aims to contribute to the production of a Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI). The project´s target is to provide a pan-European solution to the challenge of data proliferation in Europe's scientific and research communities.
EUDAT is coordinated by CSC - IT Center for Science, Finland, and comprises 25 European partners, including data centers, technology providers, and research communities and funding agencies from 13 countries. The project was launched on the 1st of October 2011, and it is co-funded by the European Commission’s Framework Programme 7.
For questions about PDC activities at EUDAT please contact Erwin Laure.
CRESTA brings together four of Europe’s leading supercomputing centres, with one of the world’s major equipment vendors, two of Europe’s leading programming tools providers and six application and problem owners to explore how the exaflop challenge can be met.
The project has two integrated strands: one focused on enabling a key set of co-design applications for exascale, the other focused on building and exploring appropriate systemware for exascale platforms.
The six co-design vehicles represent an exceptional group of applications used by European academia and industry to solve critical grand challenge issues, including: biomolecular systems, fusion energy, the virtual physiological human, numerical weather prediction and engineering.

|PRACE: The vision of the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe is to enable and support European global leadership in public and private research and development. PRACE seeks to realize this vision by contributing to the advancement of European competitiveness in industry and research through provisioning of world leading persistent computing and data management resources and services.
The PRACE RI is a pan-European infrastructure seated in Brussels and established as an international non-profit association of European government representative organizations responsible for High-Performance Computing resources and services for public research. Named ‘Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe AISBL’, it currently has 21 members countries. PRACE is funded by member governments through their representative organizations and EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° RI-261557. The first PRACE computer systems and their operations are funded by the governments of the representative organizations hosting the systems.

|ECEE: Enabling clouds for eScience - is where the cloud projects NEON, BalticCloud, NGS, GRNET cloud, SARA cloud, UCM (OpenNebula), StratusLab, VENUS-C, SEECCI and CESGA collaborate to find out as much as possible, as quick as possible, about how clouds can help their users in their daily work - eScience.
For questions about PDC activities at ECEE please contact Åke Edlund.
|EGI: The objective of European Grid Initiative (a foundation established under Dutch law) is to create and maintain a pan-European Grid Infrastructure in collaboration with National Grid Iniatives (NGIs) in order to guarantee the long-term availability of a generic e-infrastructure for all European research communities and their international collaborators.
For questions about PDC activities at EGI please contact Gert Svensson.
|INCF: International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility: Promotes international activities in Neuroinformatics and related fields. The organization was formed in 2005 by the OECD Global Science Forum and currently has 15 member countries.
