EU 5FP IST RTD project: Development of Grid Environment for Interactive Applications (2002-05) IST-2001-32243
Project started on March 1, 2002 (21 partners from 11 Europe countries), finished on 30 April 2005.

The Cross Grid project will develop, implement and exploit new Grid components for interactive compute and data intensive applications like simulation and visualisation for surgical procedures, flooding crisis, team decision support systems, distributed data analysis in high-energy physics, air pollution combined with weather forecasting.
