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.

Making sure that the voices of genocide survivors are heard and not forgotten

Shortly after filming Schindler’s List, Steven Spielberg established the Shoah Foundation to document the experiences of Holocaust survivors and witnesses of other genocides via video testimony. High-speed R&E networks combined with high-capacity data storage contribute to ensuring digital preservation of these historic memories.

Technology and sports science: a winning team

Technology is rapidly changing the way athletes and sports coaches work together. Accurate feedback and reliable assessment techniques are the main ingredients to maintain and improve performances or to effectively recover from sport injuries. Remote sensing and data sonification, underpinned by high-capacity connectivity, can improve standard data analysis techniques.

Two pipe organs 2,000 km apart in concert

Because of its sheer size, a pipe organ is bound to the location where it’s situated, making it very rare for organists to be able to play together. Until now. A magic moment occurred at theTNC16 research and education network conference in Prague: two organs more than 2000 km apart will play a concert together, thus creating a completely new musical experience.

Researching the sea: a collaborative effort brings together oceanographers from around the world

The Spanish Institute of Oceanography is one of the first organisations in the world to solely dedicate itself to researching the sea and its resources. Its broad and diversified activities require an accurate database capable of accommodating millions of data items, as well as a powerful connections to researchers and national and international centres with which it shares information.

eduroam unstoppable

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, worldwide roaming access developed for the international research and education community. eduroam is now available in 76 countries worldwide and is expanding beyond campuses to public, commercial and city Wi-Fi initiatives.

Creating a roadmap for a new European heating infrastructure

The Heat Roadmap Europe project has set out to map the demand for heating and cooling in 14 European countries, along with the potential sources of surplus and renewable heating and cooling that could be used to supply this demand. The aim is to decarbonise the heating sector of Europe over the next 30-40 years.

LifeWatch helps us understand biodiversity…and preserve the planet

Doñana National Park in Andalusia Spain is one of the world's most fascinating nature reserves, a mosaic of ecosystems and home to unique and endangered species. The Park is connected to LifeWatch, a joint European e-infrastructure for biodiversity and ecosystem research, which enables scientists to access a vast array of data from multiple resources in real time to learn about the environment.

“We share the virus and mosquitoes, let’s also share our data”

Participants at the 3rd TEIN/APAN Dengue Fever workshop on 24 January in Manila reaffirmed their commitment to join forces with research and education networks to combat Dengue Fever and other infectious diseases such as Zika. Plans include developing a digital platform to exchange data and working towards an outbreak prediction model.

Dancing beyond time: an encounter between tech and telematic art

Think of a dance performance in which the dancers, instead of sharing the same stage, are in different cities or even other continents. That is the mission of telematics dance, approaching dancers who are not necessarily in the same physical space, and creating other experience relations with the body and technological resources.
