HiPIC's Previous Research Projects
- Lion Grid
This project was sponsored by UNESCO and HP under the Brain Gain Initiative (BGI) between 2007 and 2013. The project led to the establishment of the University of Nigeria Grid Computing Infrastructure. See website: (http://grid.unn.edu.ng).
- Cloud Infrastructure for Research and Repository
This new project seeks to leverage on the successes already achieved in the BGI project by expanding the Grid infrastructure to include Cloud computing functionalities that will house repositories of applications for researchers by building science gateways. This will also include other cloud services like personal backup services, like the Google cloud, etc, as well as application and component repositories, all domiciled in UNN. This project is in collaboration with the EU4Africa project FP7
