Un dels grans reptes de la indústria farmacèutica és la medicina personalitzada. Difícilment una sola molècula esdevindrà un tractament farmacològic amb èxit per a tota la població mundial donada la gran variabilitat genètica natural en la població. Actualment l’elevat índex de...

The recycling of end-of-life concrete into new concrete is one of the most interesting options for reducing worlwide natural resources use and emissions associated with the building materials sector. The production of the cement used in concrete, for example, is responsible for at least 5% of worldwide CO2 emissions.

On-site reuse of clean silica...

Life Science developed into one of the largest e-Infrastructure users in Europe, in part due to the ever-growing amount of biological data. At the time of the project, modern drug design typically included both sequence bioinformatics, in silico virtual screening, and free energy calculations, e.g. of drug binding. This development has accelerated tremendously, and has put...

Large scale simulations are the third pillar of science today alongside theory and experiment. They produce scientific insights, technological advances, and solve problems in many fields of society. Their tools are high-end computers and effective software. PRACE, the Partnership for Advanced Computing, has been created as a not for profit...

Several research communities in Europe exploit e-Infrastructures, sharing data and computing resources with Grid and Supercomputing technology. However the inherent complexity of these technologies has limited their wider adoption and their long term sustainability: designing, developing and operating a computing infrastructure for an e-Science community remains challenging...

With top systems reaching the PFlop barrier, the next challenge is to understand how applications have to be implemented and be prepared for the ExaFlop target. Multicore chips are already here but will grow in the next decade to several hundreds of cores. Hundreds of thousands of nodes based on them will constitute the future exascale systems.

Interoperability, which brings major benefits for enterprise and science, is key for the pervasive adoption of grids & clouds. Interoperability between existing grids and clouds was of primary importance for the European Union at the time of this project. Many of the policy issues required to achieve interoperability with DCIs across the world are already being explored...

With the challenges of service and infrastructure providers as the point of departure, OPTIMIS focused on open, scalable and dependable service platforms and architectures that allowed flexible and dynamic provision of advanced services. The OPTIMIS innovations can be summarized as a combination of technologies to create a dependable ecosystem of providers and consumers that...

The use of High Performance Computing (HPC) is commonly recognized as a key strategic element in improving understanding of complex phenomena, in both research and industry. The constant growth of generated data - Big Data - and the computing capabilities of extreme systems are leading to a new generation of computers composed of millions of heterogeneous cores which will...

Let’s imagine that we have developed a drug with very good potency for some cancer therapy. However, with time, many patients start developing resistance to the drug due to some particular point mutation as a result of the high metabolism of the cancer cells. Or let’s imagine that some specific treatment for a virus has lost its efficacy due to some viral...
