CERN is the world’s largest particle physics lab and home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful accelerator providing research facilities for HEP researchers across the globe. LHC experiments will run up to 1 million computing tasks per day and generate around 15 petabytes of data per year over a 10‐15 year period. CERN leads the World‐wide LHC Computing Grid project (WLCG), to provide computing resource to store, distribute, analyse and access (in near real‐time) LHC data for a community of more than 10,000 physicists worldwide.
In the Helix Nebula - the Science Cloud project, CERN acts as Coordinator and lead procurer.
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the world’s top research institutions dedicated to basic research in the molecular life sciences. It is funded by 20 member states, mostly European, and Australia as associate member. The main laboratory is in Heidelberg (DE) and with EMBL outstations in Grenoble, Hamburg, Monterotondo and Hinxton.
DESY, the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, is one of the world’s leading accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety – from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behaviour of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life.
PIC is a joint undertaking of the Spanish and Catalan governments through CIEMAT and IFAE. PIC has been designated by the Spanish government as its LHC Tier-1 centre, and it is the main (Tier-0) data centre for the MAGIC telescope and the PAU dark energy survey. PIC maintains a transversal innovation activity with many significant results over the years, related to software, hardware, monitoring and energy efficiency.
