Ukrainian National Grid is the targeted state scientific and technological project (program) on the development and implementation of grid-technologies for 2009-2013, adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine in 2009.
The project objective is to build a national grid-infrastructure and to introduce grid-technologies in all areas of scientific, social and economic activities in Ukraine, as well as to train specialists on grid-technologies.
The following management bodies are created for project control:
Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine is the basic organization for the implementation of the Project UNG.
BCC provides management and coordination of works on supporting the operation of the national grid-infrastructure.
BCC on technological and operational level serves as the National Operations Centre (Resource infrastructure Provider) of UNG grid-resources in relation with the International grid-communities.

Memorandum of Understanding between UW CHTC (Open Science Grid) and BCC
In 2015, the specialists of the Physico-Technical Institute of Low Temperatures. BI Verkina of the NAS of Ukraine, MM Bogolyubov Institute of Theoretical Physics and OSG installed and configured the access server htcondor.bitp.kiev.ua of the HTCondor system. The system HTCondor (the development of the University of Wisconsin-Madison USA, http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/) is a distributed computing system, adapted to perform the most complex computing tasks both on personal computers in local networks and in the grid infrastructure .
The resource center of the Ukrainian grid infrastructure KIPT-LCG2 (Kharkov) was used to process experiments to observation of gravitational waves.
EGI congratulates the Virgo collaboration for their contribution to the 2017 Nobel Prize in physics awarded for the observation of gravitational waves. The Virgo detector is located in Italy, within the site of the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) and was designed to discover gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of spacetime – predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity
Today, the Commission makes the EOSC Declaration ( 72 KB) available to all scientific stakeholders, for their endorsement and commitments to the realisation of the EOSC by 2020.
Next EGI Webinar (November, 21) : AppDB VMOps Dashboard – A graphical portal to manage applications and services on federated cloud infrastructures
The EGI Applications Database (AppDB) was recently expanded with the Virtual Machine Operations (VMOps) dashboard. The VMOps dashboard provides graphical interfaces and high-level services for users to manage Virtual Machines and Virtualised Appliances on federated cloud infrastructures, particularly on the EGI Federated Cloud and community-specific cloud federations, for example the ELIXIR Competence Centre Cloud Federation.
