Crowd computing collects the computing capacity of a large number of small computers into one large infrastructure. Volunteer computing is one example where hundreds of thousands of computers are connected into one Crowd computer to help to solve science. Local Crowd computers at universities or other organisations, collect computing power for local use.

On a European scale the activiteis are co-ordianted by:

National Research Infrastructure Roadmap 2018

National Research Infrastructure Roadmap 2018 for Hungary. For Hungary, the Extreme Light Infrastructure Attosecond Light Pulse Source (ELI-ALPS) facility has particular importance: it is a major con- tribution to laser research and can open new ways for physics, chemistry, materials science and medical biology. The facility, which started operation gradually in late 2017, is mainly used for basic research but will also contribute to applied research and, as a spillover effect, to industrial application. In addition to the ELI-ALPS, there are several other research infrastructures in Hungary. These lower cost RIs can be fi- nanced from national funds and are normally not considered as unique facilities, still, they are essential for Hungarian researchers. To use the large scale European RIs and join the international scientific networks around them, Hungary needs well-equipped domestic RIs.
