      The EUROGRID project is a shared cost Research and Technology Development project (RTD) granted by the European Commission (grant No. IST 20247). It is part of the Information Society Technologies Programme (IST). The grant period is November 1, 2000 till October 31, 2003. Within the project, a European GRID network of leading High-Performance Computing centres from different European countries will be established. The EUROGRID software infrastructure that uses the existing Internet network and offers seamless and secure access for the EUROGRID users will be operated and supported. Important GRID software components like fast file transfer, resource broker, interface for coupled applications and interactive access, will be developed and integrated into EUROGRID. Distributed simulation codes from different application areas (biomolecular simulations, weather prediction, coupled CAE simulations, structural analysis, real-time data processing) are demonstrated. After the project end, the EUROGRID software will be available as a supported product.
