This paper reports the integration of the astronomical Grid solution realised in the Astro-WISE information system with the EGEE Grid and the porting of Astro-WISE applications on EGEE. We review the architecture of the Astro-WISE Grid, define the problems for the integration of the Grid infrastructures and our solution to these problems. We give examples of applications running on Astro-WISE and EGEE and review future development of the merged system.
