During the first phase of EGEE, key applications were deployed in scientific fields, such as High Energy Physics, life sciences and earth observation, that have paved the way for application deployment in the Industrial sector and increased links with Industry.

The first EGEE Industry Day, took place in Paris was the first event of its kind for the EGEE Project where Industry was given the chance to interact directly with the EGEE project and brought together decision makers, research heads, policy makers & CTOs to learn how industrial applications can be deployed on EGEE.

The event highlighted where grid computing can create new industrial solutions and how organizations can benefit from sophisticated computing resources of grid, not available in traditional IT infrastructures. Interactive discussions provided an opportunity to get an industry perspective and discover how to EGEE can work towards a commercial grid.
