Grid Computing @ Firepear
Published: 2019-04-04

We believe in the power of science and a knowledge-based approach to life in general. So we’re proud to be a part of several community grid computing projects which work to solve open problems in medicine, environmental science, and mathematics.

Our work

We’re active in World Community Grid, GPUGrid, and Primegrid
