The main objective of the Business Experiments in Grid (BEinGRID) project is to foster the adoption of the so-called Next Generation Grid technologies by the realization of several business experiments and the creation of a toolset repository of Grid middleware upper layers. BEinGRID will undertake a series of targeted business experiment pilots designed to implement and deploy Grid solutions in a broad spectrum of European business sectors (entertainment, financial, industrial, chemistry, gaming, retail, textile, etc). Eighteen business experiments are planned in the initial stage of the project with a second open call for proposals in the latter stages. Secondly, a toolset repository of Grid service components and best practise will be created to support European businesses that wish to take-up the Grid. To minimise redevelopment of components, BEinGRID will deploy innovative Grid solutions using existing Grid components from across the European Union and beyond.
BEinGRID started on the 1. June 2006 and will run until the 31.Dezember 2009.
