Grid forum

National cooperation forum for Grid technology in biomedical research

The German Grid projects in the fields of medicine, medical research and life sciences collaborate in the TMF 'Grid forum'. Together, the projects in this forum serve to enhance national cooperation with D-Grid as well as international cooperation with the HealthGrid at European level and caBIG in the US.

The Grid forum was established in January 2008 as part of a joint workshop involving TMF and the biomedical Grid projects (MediGrid, Services@MediGrid, MedInfoGrid) together with representatives from caBIG (US) and D-Grid.
