LHC@home is a platform for volunteers to help physicists develop and exploit particle accelerators like CERN's Large Hadron Collider, and to compare theory with experiment in the search for new fundamental particles.

By contributing spare processing capacity on their home and laptop computers, volunteers may run simulations of beam dynamics and particle collisions in the LHC's giant detectors.

The Grid

The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) project is a global collaboration linking grid infrastructures and computer centres worldwide.

It was launched in 2002 to provide global computing resource to store, distribute and analyse the 15 Petabytes (15 million Gigabytes) of data annually generated by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN on the Franco-Swiss border.
