Summary Enabling Grids for E-sciencE (EGEE) is Europe's leading grid computing project, providing a computing support infrastructure for over 13,000 researchers world-wide, from fields as diverse as high energy physics, earth and life sciences.

Until April 2010 EGEE is focused on transitioning to a sustainable operational model, while maintaining reliable services for its users. The resources currently coordinated by EGEE will be managed through the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) from the end of April 2010. In EGI each country's grid infrastructure will be run by National Grid Initiatives. The adoption of this model will enable the next leap forward in research infrastructures to support collaborative scientific discoveries. EGI will ensure abundant, high-quality computing support for the European and global research community for many years to come.
