Thanks to the World Community Grid, doing ‘nothing’ can translate into doing ‘something’ for humanity’s good. You and I can aid research projects that benefit society, simply by downloading a software.


The World Community Grid aims to create the world’s largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity. Such projects include:


To aid these research projects, you simply download a software that collects your computer’s excess power when it is on, but idle.

This reduces research time and makes the technology use more cost-effective, since the work is split into small pieces that can be processed simultaneously.

Best of all, this software does not slow your computer down and is absolutely free! And it only takes five minutes to download.


If you’d like to be a World Community Grid volunteer, simply follow these easy steps:

  1. Download the software.

  2. Help save the world!

Join millions of other World Community Grid volunteers in aiding humanitarian research. You can make a difference.
