In April 2001, a proposal to create a grid of solar data archives was submitted to the European Commission under the Information Society Technologies (IST) program. The European Grid of Solar Observations (EGSO) will provide the tools and infrastructure needed to create the data grid that will form the fabric of a virtual solar observatory. Every attempt will be made to ensure that EGSO is universally acceptable. The EGSO proposal has been positively evaluated and the project has been selected for negotiation. If successful, the project will start in early 2002.
