UK Local Support

The UK has a number of regional grid initiatives, detailed below, which inter-operate. In addition there is a National Grid Service (NGS) that works with all these regional grid initiatives as well as EGEE to provide support to new and existing grid users in the UK.

The National Grid Service (NGS)

The National Grid Service aims to provide coherent electronic access for UK researchers to all computational and data based resources and facilities required to carry out their research, independent of resource or researcher location. Documentation of how to join NGS can be found here. Extended user support is also provided by NGS staff.

Getting a personal Grid Certificate

The UK Certificate authority is run by the NGS, and you can apply for a certificate online. You will need to visit the Registration Authority local to your site, with your passport or similar photographic ID. Once you submit your application, you'll get an email guiding you to where to find the relevant RA.

Notable VO's in the UK

Once you have a certificate, you'll typically want to either join an existing VO, or start a new one. Starting a new VO is a process with several steps, so we reccomend that you contact the Regional Support team at project-eu-egee-na4-ukif AT cern.ch and we can walk you through the steps.
