HOW DOES EGEE WORK
The EGEE-II Project is organised into ten "activities", which come under three main areas:
- Networking Activities (NA) are the management and coordination of all the communication aspects of the project
- Service Activities (SA) are the support, operation and management of the Grid as well as the provision of network resources
- Research Activities (JRA) concentrate on Grid research and development
Information sheets and descriptions of the various activities are available for download in many languages.
