Some of the earlier European projects that Genias did participated in are: HoiseNM, WebSET, IERAPSI, Eroppa, Dynamite and EIRGSP. WebSET has also produced a set of standardised medical e-learning objects and a complete e-learning environment. The objective of EROPPA was to design, implement and test remote access for Post Production Companies to 3D graphics applications running on High Performance Computer Centers. The European project Dynamite (Dynamic PVM) aimed to provide the software and the method to let workstations work inter- actively when needed and to use their spare CPU time for massively parallel computing tasks. To realise this, the workstations had to be monitored constantly and every change in workload would have to result in a different distribution of the computer tasks at hand. EIRGSP is the support project for the e-Infrastructure reflection Group (e-IRG). Genias produced the knowledge base: http://KnowledgeBase.e-irg.eu for this project. Genias Benelux bv is also involved in the e-IRGSP3 project that is the follow on project to e-IRGSP and e-IRGSP3.
