The BiG Grid project (led by partners Nikhef and NBIC) aimed to set up a grid infrastructure for scientific research. This research infrastructure contains compute clusters, data storage, combined with specific middleware and software to enable research which needs more than just raw computing power or data storage. The project was a collaboration between Nikhef and NBIC, and enabled access to grid infrastructures for scientific research in the Netherlands. SARA was partner in BiG Grid.
On December 31, 2012, the BiG Grid project has ended. As from January 1, 2013, SURFsara has become responsible for the e-Infrastructure.
