The Grid can be seen as a framework for "flexible, secure, coordinated resource sharing among dynamic collections of individuals, institutions, and resources." It allows researchers in different administrative domains to use multiple resources for problem solving and provides an infrastructure for developing larger and more complex applications potentially faster than with existing systems. Individual projects carried out to meet specific needs must interact as part of a larger Grid environment, but no international consensus exists as to which of the many ideas, proposed standards, and specifications are likely to dominate in the future.
