Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II

The foundation of the University of Naples (http://www.unina.it), that since 1987 bears the name of its first promoter, was made public  by a  generalis lictera issued by Frederick II Hohenstaufen, King of Sicily and Head of the Roman Empire, a document written in Siracusa on June 5th 1224. The number of enrolled students and that of the teaching staff have made of the University of Naples one of the largest Universities in the Italian country.

The University of Naples has been member of European e-Infrastructure since the EGEE I project.

Presently the University of Naples contributes in IGI with resources and know-how acquired and consolidated during the PON S.Co.P.E. Project (http://www.scope.unina.it/). S.Co.P.E. (Sistema Cooperativo Distribuito ad alte Prestazioni per Elaborazioni Scientifiche Multidisciplinari) was founded by the National  Italian Department of University and Research with the aim of building a distributed and collaborative system for applications in many scientific research areas (from Materials to Life Science, from some of Physics and Engineering branches  to Environmental Science, …).

S.Co.P.E. hardware resources are included into the GRISU` (GRIglia del SUd) e-Infrastructure. 

Know-how is the result of a multidisciplinary and collaborative effort of people, coming from both several University branches as well as external Research Institutions such as INFN and CNR, and includes: 

  1. development and maintenance of e-services for distributed  computing (Grid, Cloud, …) and HPC (Cluster, …)  infrastructures,  also focusing on interoperability among different kind of  infrastructures; 
  2. e-Science services development and maintenance (Scientific  Gateways, applicative middleware,…);
  3. development, porting and maintenance of code for intensive computing applications  (HPC, Parallel, …). 

Both e-infrastructure and know-how are available to Research and Educational programs of interest for both internal and external (public and private) agencies and institutions.
