EGI-InSPIRE project
 
EGI-InSPIRE project (contract number: RI-261323) started on 1 May 2010. The main goal of the project is to continue activities started in the EGEE, BalticGrid and BalticGrid-II projects including cooperation with National Grid initiatives, development and maintenance of the sustainable Grid infrastructure, engagement and support of Grid users, as well to provide European scientists and their international partners with reliable e-Infrastructure that can support their needs for large-scale data analysis.
 
EGI-InSPIRE is a consortium of 50 partners, including 37 National Grid Initiatives (NGIs), two European International Research Organisations (EIROs) and eight partners from the Asia Pacific region.
 
EGI-InSPIRE is ideally placed to join together the new Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) such as clouds, supercomputing networks and desktop grids, for the benefit of user communities within the European Research Area.
 
EGI-InSPIRE will coordinate the transition from a project-based system (the EGEE series) to a sustainable pan-European e-Infrastructure. The four-year project will support grids of high-performance computing (HPC) and high-throughput computing (HTC) resources.
 
The project will also support the current heavy users of the infrastructure, such as high energy physics, computational chemistry and life sciences, as they move their critical services and tools from a centralised support model to one driven by their own individual communities.
 
IMCS UL, Latvian National Grid initiative, is the project partner from Latvia. In collaboration with other project partners IMCS participates in security tasks, cluster monitoring and administration as well as dissemination activities including website news articles and brochures about the EGI-InSPIRE project. IMCS is also organizing Grid seminars and conferences for the local Grid community as well as participates in Grid events in other countries.
