Connected supercomputers to boost European science and innovation

While Europe provides around 5 per cent of the world’s supercomputing resources, it consumes almost one third of them. To remedy this, the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking is investing heavily in new machinery. Recently it announced the funding of three pre-exascale… Continue Reading →

Creating a model of the Sun as a whole

“For too many years, the study of the Sun has been split into internal (i.e., the origin of the solar magnetic field) and external solar physics topics (i.e., the existence of sun spots) with no attention to the complex interplay… Continue Reading →

Supporting Ukrainian scientists’ participation in fundamental research

A research associate at the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology is part of the only Ukrainian team that is processing data from the Large Hadron Collider in CERN. Alexey Kurov is actively involved in processing data from the Large… Continue Reading →

Hunting for gravitational waves: a national and global collaboration

Australian scientists on the hunt for gravitational waves rely on AARNet for transferring data from LIGO detectors in the USA to OzGrav nodes in Australia for analysis. Dozens of researchers from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational… Continue Reading →

Visibility and value – marketing communications community groups review progress

How can research and education networks show their value – to funders, customers, and other stakeholders and audiences? What evidence shows value, and how do you gather this evidence? Participants of SIG-Marcomms (Special Interest Group on Marketing Communications) and the… Continue Reading →

Why TROLLing is the thing to do for linguists

The concepts of Open Science and Open Data are important to research as a whole. Not least for linguists. They live in exciting times: suddenly they have access to enormous amounts of data – or Corpora as they call it… Continue Reading →

Unravelling the mysteries of our immune system #GenomicStories

Five to six years ago, researchers were able to sequence hundreds of immune-system molecules (like antibodies) in the human body. Today they can sequence tens of millions. How? To facilitate this study of immunogenetics, researchers at Simon Fraser University in… Continue Reading →
