Grid technology has achieved significant advances in the past few years with a plethora of prestigious organisations contributing to middleware that opens the horizons for new exploitation opportunities. However, this potential exploitation has not yet been seen to materialise in emerging applications. The use of Grid technology is still confined mainly within scientific applications, developed by scientific organisations, being experts in Grid principles. GREDIA (FP6 34363 - Grid enabled access to rich media content) addresses this problem with the provision of a Grid application development platform. In this talk I will describe the general goals of the GREDIA project and specifically describe the design of the data/metadata layers of its middleware component.
