A campus network for Antarctic research

It was far from just another day at the office for network engineer Henning Løvmo who spent three weeks in early 2024, installing a campus network at the Norwegian Polar Institute’s Troll research station at Antarctica.

Migrating birds turn Finns into citizen scientists

Thousands of citizens in Finland have responded to a call to report their observations of migrating birds. So far, approximately 3.7 million recordings were submitted.

Empowering researchers in the Asia-Pacific region

The recent REN Leaders Forum served as a platform to facilitate greater united coordination to help increase the impact of the technologies and capabilities NRENs provide for enabling of research in APAC countries.

Predicting tsunamis through quantum computing

In Finland, a new type of supercomputer merges conventional supercomputing with quantum computing. An application could be calculating in near-real-time how a tsunami will develop.

Nordic climate researchers stronger together

Thanks to an EU open science program, the climate researchers in each Nordic country do not need to create their models of the Nordic climate system from scratch.

Understanding turbulence through numerical simulations
