From project page:
(...) Our goal within ICENI is to provide high-level abstractions for e-science (scientific computing) which will allow users to construct and define their own applications through a graphical composition tool integrated with distributed component repositories and to deliver this environment across a range of platforms and devices.
(...) The distributed component repositories will allow developers to contribute their software to the wider community and easily incorporate other work into their own components or applications. The ICENI middleware federates the underlying resources that enable the e-scientist to carry out their work by allowing sophisticated and extensible access and usage policies to be specified. (...)
