CTG is the lead government partner in a nationwide effort to build a National Technology Infrastructure for the twenty-first century. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the infrastructure will enable the United States to stay on the leading edge of science and technology by integrating computational, collaborative, visualization, and information resources into a powerful "National Technology Grid."
The governing organization, the National Computational Science Alliance (Alliance), organizes the efforts of more than 50 research centers across the United States. Headed by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Alliance includes top-notch research partners from educational institutions, national laboratories, industry, and supercomputing centers across the country.
In this partnership, CTG joins other educational and research organizations in helping to identify, develop, and disseminate innovative applications of advanced technologies to the practical problems of federal, state, and local governments.
