Project Objective

The main objective of D4Science is to deploy the e-Infrastructures built so far by the EGEE and DILIGENT projects so that they "address the needs of" several "new scientific communities" affiliated with the broad disciplines of Environmental Monitoring and Fishery Resource Management.

These e-Infrastructures offer mechanisms that concurrently exploit networks, grids and data in a seamless fashion, and will thus enable these scientific communities to operate within "a coherent pan-European model, regardless of the location of their research facilities". Through a "continuous consolidation and expansion" of these open e-Infrastructures performed during the project, these communities will obtain increasingly more facilities for creating Virtual Research Environments in the form of Collaboratories based on shared computation, storage, and generic service resources offered by EGEE and DILIGENT at a European level, as well as on data and domain-specific service resources offered by large international organizations, such as ESA, FAO and WorldFish Center.

D4Science is a 24 months project. Started on the 1st of January 2008.
