The Industry Forum (IF) is an integral part of EGEE, and one of the EGEE platforms designed to give Industry the opportunity to learn about EGEE and find out how their Industrial Applications can be deployed on EGEE.

The IF focuses on

  •  How diverse areas of Industry can use the Grid;
  • Communicating the strides already made in Grid computing by EGEE where Grid computing can create new Industrial Solutions and where all sectors of Industry can benefit from the Sophisticated Computing Resources of EGEE, not available in traditional IT infrastructures;
  • Providing Industry with the opportunity to give their own perspective and point of view and also to let the EGEE know about their view of the field;
  • Raising awareness of the project among Industry and encourage businesses to participate in the project and use its results to their benefit;
  • Organising Industry Days, focusing on how specific industry sectors can make use of the Grid

The Industry Forum is managed by a steering committee consisting of EGEE project partners and representatives from business.

Anyone interested in joining the EGEE Industry Forum should register as an EGEE Community Member where you can also describe in a few sentences, the motivation for coming onboard the Industry Forum. You can find out more about  the Community in the User Forum

Which type of Applications can be deployed on the EGEE Grid infrastructure?

The first applications to use the EGEE Grid infrastructure were from the fields of High Energy Physics (HEP) and Biomedicine, but EGEE by now also supports applications from many other scientific domains, such as Astrophysics, Computational Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Finance, Fusion, Geophysics, Multimedia. In addition, there are several applications from the industrial sector running on the EGEE Grid, such as applications from geophysics or the plastics industry.

From an Industrial perspective EGEE has had a notable success with the Geocluster application the leading industry seismic processing solution.  Geocluster is the first industrial application successfully running on the EGEE Production Service, within the Expanding GEOsciences on DEmand (EGEODE) Virtual Organisation.

EGEE also supports the OpenPlast Project an industrial application project using a computing grid, focused on plasturgy companies specific needs. First phase of this project is to work on the simulation of thermoplastic material injection processes.
