Multi-Gigabit European Research and Education Network and Associated Services (GN3plus)

GN3plus Summary: Known simply as GÉANT, GN3plus is the extension to the third term of the successful GÉANT networking project that lies at the heart of the EU’s e-Infrastructure strategy. Co-funded by the European Union (EU) and Europe’s National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), GÉANT seeks to promote the free, unimpeded movement of scientific data and knowledge, by connecting and empowering research and education (R&E) communities within Europe and other world regions. By driving knowledge creation as the global hub for research networking excellence, GÉANT’s vision is to become the unified European Communications Commons. Objectives: The overall objectives of GN3plus are to:  Deliver world-class networking services, at the highest levels of operational excellence, to research and education communities, building on GN3’s success.  Support the growth of R&E communities within Europe in both breadth and depth, and expose them to talent elsewhere, providing opportunities to meet across the divides of resources and distance and in so doing transform the way research is done.  Innovate to meet the needs of the community, and act as a catalyst to translate this into a competitive European ICT sector.  Research, collect and share knowledge about network technologies and services through cooperation…

High-Performance Computing Infrastructure for South East Europe’s Research Communities

Project Overview High-Performance Computing Infrastructure for South East Europe’s Research Communities HP-SEE, High-Performance Computing Infrastructure for South East Europe’s Research Communities will link existing and upcoming HPC facilities in South East Europe in a common infrastructure, and it will provide operational solutions for it. As a complementary action, the project will establish and maintain a GÉANT link for Southern Caucasus. The initiative will open the South East European HPC infrastructure to a wide range of new user communities, including those of less-resourced countries, fostering collaboration and providing advanced capabilities to researchers, with an emphasis on strategic groups in computational physics, computational chemistry and life sciences. HP-SEE receives EC support through FP7 under the “Research Infrastructures” action. The HP-SEE initiative builds on the lasting cooperation in the SEE region, embodied in a number of eInfrastructure EC-funded initiatives, aiming at equal participation of less-resourced countries of the region in European trends. The SEEREN initiative established a regional network and the SEE-GRID initiative the regional Grid, while BSI project has established GÉANT link to Caucasus. The SEE-LIGHT project is working towards establishing a dark-fibre backbone that will interconnect most National Research and Education Networks in the Balkan region. HP-SEE aspires to contribute to…

New Methods of Working for Information Society Technologies Programme Promotion to Commonwealth of Independent States

The important objective of WISTCIS is to accelerate emergence and further development of telematics activities in the seven European CIS countries creating in this way a huge new potential market for IST products. Pursuing this objective WISTCIS will facilitate new working contacts between the producers of Information Society Technologies (IST) Programme telematics products in the countries of European Union and participating organizations in the CIS countries. Such contacts will be deployed by the project into efficient East-West target-oriented working teams. New methods of work will be implemented for these teams to embed them into real environment of the Information Society. Thus WISTCIS is directly related with IST Programme as a whole, as well as with its key action (ii) “New methods of work and electronic commerce”. The project also contributes to three other key actions. WISTCIS significantly contributes to expansion of IST Programme on huge community of the seven European CIS countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine.
