Live images from a 600 m long microscope

The European Spallation Source, a 1.843 M euro Big Science infrastructure under construction in Lund, Sweden, will feature an on-demand streaming channel

Connected supercomputers to boost European science and innovation

A new pre-exascale supercomputer in Finland will be tenfold faster compared to today's fastest European supercomputer

A universe of digital tools to help school-aged students prepare for University

The Up2University project helps school-aged students prepare for university by making the technology and the methodology that students most likely will be facing at universities available to the secondary school level.

Private weather observations to be integrated into forecasting

Observations from the “Internet of things”, such as intelligent cars, phones, buildings and personal weather stations added to the mix can provide detailed information on local to hyper-local meteorological phenomena.

Has the world gone peppers?

Researchers from across Europe are hard at work developing a robot that autonomously roams a greenhouse, “eye-balling” sweet peppers to check if they have reached optimal ripeness, and then plucks them off the plant and places them in a vat – all automatically.

Pinpointing air pollution from space

For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.

Protecting the research & education sector against cyber attacks

As cyber attacks increase steadily in frequency and scale, the importance of defending ones own network against attackers increases as well. That is why many R&E networks have a Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT, to handle security incidents.

eduVPN – securing your privacy when you are out and about

Free Wi-Fi is a luxury we have come to expect at cafes, airports, on commuter trains or in the hotel we are staying at. But are you actually aware of how vulnerable you are when you are using a public Wi-Fi hotspot?

Swedish medical research goes East

Research & Education networks go where their customers go. So, while research and education grows increasingly global, networks do the same. One recent example is the prestigious Swedish Karolinska Institute’s opening of its first hub outside Sweden, the Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine in Hong Kong.

Monitoring volcanoes by satellites

For volcanologists and seismologists Iceland is the world’s volcanic laboratory, where they try out new, data-intensive monitoring and early warning technologies, to help save lives and livelihoods in all parts of the world threatened by volcanic eruptions.

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.
