World Community Grid enables anyone with a computer, smartphone or tablet to donate their unused computing power to advance cutting-edge scientific research on topics related to health, poverty and sustainability.

Through the contributions of over 650,000 individuals and 460 organisations, World Community Grid has supported 28 research projects to date, including searches for more effective treatments for cancer, HIV/AIDS and several tropical diseases. Other projects are looking for low-cost water filtration systems and new materials for capturing solar energy efficiently.

Based in Liverpool in the UK, Liverpool Community Grid (LCG) is a local grid computing project that donates spare computing power to help scientists tackle some of the world’s biggest problems.

Novoda's Liverpool office is proud to be the first node in this grid. Giving back to the community is very important to us, so we are happy to use our office space for this fantastic project. We also run the Liverpool Google Developer Group bi-monthly meet-up where developers can get together to talk about the software behind projects like this.
