71    \section{Participating International Organisations}
72    Like supercomputers, Grids attract science.
73    This has lead to a community of Grid computing users which advance the Grid computing field on an international scale.
74    
75    Some of the cooperating organisations within the Grid computing community are:
76    
77    \begin{itemize}
78    \item BiG Grid, the Dutch e-science Grid. An example of a \textit{National Grid Initiative} (NGI), of which there are many.
79    \item The \textit{European Grid for E-sciencE} (EGEE). A leading body for NGI's. To be merged into the \textit{European Grid Initiative} (EGI).
80    \item The \textit{LHC Computing Grid} (LCG) is the Grid employed by CERN to store and analyze data generated by the LHC. Also a member of EGEE.
81    \item The \textit{Virtual Laboratory for e-Science} (VL-e). A separate entity that employs Grid infrastructure independently.
82    \end{itemize}

87    % VLEmed geen binding met EGEE, maar kan afkijken ervan doordat andere soorgelijke projecten er wel aan meedoen.
88    % Community rond de infrastructuur.
89    % Hetzelfde gebeurt bij supercomputers. Trekt wetenschap aan. -> Internationaal aanzien.

91    % EGI wordt een sturend orgaan voor de NGI's, die alle resources zelf moeten supplyen.
