     <a href="papers/161.pdf" title="The project aims to provide easy, transparent access to experimental, simulation and visualisation data kept on a multitude of systems and sites. It will also provide links to other web services, which will allow scientists to further use the selected data. The Data Portal will aim to work as a broker between the scientists, the facilities and the data. The problem addressed is that currently the scientific data is stored distributed across a multitude of sites and systems. Scientists have only very limited support in accessing, managing and transferring their dat
