Throughout Europe there currently exists numerous High Performance Computing sites housing a variety of computing platforms encorporating the spectrum of vendors and topologies. The potential for their interconnection with high speed data links is a realistic possibility and essential for the future of HPCN and any vision of "information highways" or "information societies" that are now being imaged. One major beneficiary of this interaction could be the health community. The concept of telemedicine captures much of what is developing in terms of technology implementation, especially if it is combined with the growth of the Internet and World Wide Web (WWW). Telemedicine provides the potential to reduce European geographical disparity to communicate medical practices. However, to include the latest research developments and new advanced imaging techniques requires the use of a variety of High Performance Computing platforms. The EUROMED project provides this link via a "meta-centre" combining of four European sites. (EN)
