Ensuring scientists and researchers get their data where it needs to be

Researchers at La Trobe University, Australia, collaborate with colleagues conducting fieldwork at archeological sites across Africa. FileSender, a solution enabling these researchers and thousands of others worldwide to transfer large datasets from the field to the lab, is now benefiting from a new home for sustainable R+E software development.

How Jisc’s connections to China improve student experience

Students at Queen Mary University of London’s partner universities in China need seamless access to UK-hosted course materials – whether on campus or off. Here’s how Jisc helped improve their digital experience, by working with networks and providers behind the scenes.

Thai researchers participate in Large Hadron Collider experiments

Students and researchers work with their peers in the international scientific community, increasing technology transfer and building capacity, while stimulating greater public interest in related fields, such as proton therapy cancer treatment.

Make your own kind of music with R&E networks

The net:art project is harnessing the power of audio-visual transmission technologies for the performing arts. This is about enabling artists to interact with one another and their audiences, despite the distances that separate them.

Networking of galactic proportions to uncover the mysteries of the universe

The skies of Latin America have captivated stargazers for centuries. Today, the landscape is dotted with many of the world’s most advanced and important regional, national and international observatories, providing forefront access to the heavens and beyond – enabling groundbreaking research to advance our knowledge of the universe.

Optimizing an airplane wing more precisely than ever before

Engineers used research networks and supercomputing in two countries to inform the design of airplane wings that will make airplanes lighter, reducing fuel consumption and the number of raw materials used in construction

Artists from three countries perform live via video links

A music and dance performance in Copenhagen included live feeds of musicians in London and dancers in Barcelona. Thanks to LOLA technology the synchronised effect was as if they were all physically present on the same stage.

Protecting the Earth from hazardous asteroids

On 19 April 2017 the 'Rock' asteroid made an uncomfortably close pass to Earth - the closest in 400 years. The first step to protecting against such hazards is to monitor them to calculate their precise orbits; this requires fast, reliable internet connections so that the huge volumes of observation data involved can be sent speedily and reliably to researchers around the world for analysis.

Harnessing Turkmenistan’s sunshine

Developing alternative, greener energy sources is a key priority across the world but many countries don’t have the infrastructure and skills needed to create renewable energy industries from scratch. Technology, and in particular research networks, can help develop these skills, transferring knowledge to build the industry.

Leveraging cloud services for better patient care

ARES (Advanced networking for the EU genomic Research) is implementing novel genome content distribution solutions to make large data sets accessible to healthcare practitioners for better patient care. Robust and bottleneck-free data networks are key to the success of this vital undertaking.

Driving the bioinformatics revolution in life sciences

The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) near Cambridge, UK, distributes datasets worldwide using R&E connectivity. This biological data enables the discovery of new drugs, new diagnostics and increasingly new agro-chemicals. The Institute's work, which includes the 1000 Genomes Project, has generated petabytes of data and this growth is showing no signs of abating.

Bringing high-speed internet to the birthplace of Zeus

Answering questions about the origins of Greek culture and athletics are at the heart of the Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey Project in Arcadia, Greece. Collaborative efforts within the R&E networking community have helped make the lives of the many archeologists in the field easier by bringing high-speed internet to the site.
