World Community Grid

World Community Grid's mission is to create the world's largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity. Their work has developed the technical infrastructure that serves as the grid's foundation for scientific research. Success depends upon individuals collectively contributing their unused computer time to change the world for the better. World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not-for-profit organizations to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the computer infrastructure required in the absence of a public grid. As part of their commitment to advancing human welfare, all results will be in the public domain and made public to the global research community.
