Climate projects funded by Shota Rustaveli Foundation use GRENA cloud infrastructure

According to a Memorandum of Cooperation between the Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation of Georgia and the Georgian Research and Educational Networking Association GRENA, signed in August 2019, three projects funded by the foundation are now using GRENA cloud infrastructure. The first research and education cloud facility in Georgia was established with the support of the EU-funded EaPConnect project, and its integration in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is in progress. The three projects are devoted to weather forecasting and the investigation of climate change, which highly impacts Georgia’s economy, agriculture, energy, water supply and other areas.
