ACTRIS-2 addresses the scope of integrating state-of-the-art European ground-based stations for long term observations of aerosols, clouds and short lived gases capitalizing work of FP7-ACTRIS. ACTRIS-2 aims to achieve the construction of auser-oriented RI, unique in the EU-RI landscape. ACTRIS-2 provides 4-D integrated high-quality data from near-surface to high altitude...

The consortium of this European Training Network (ETN) "BigStorage: Storage-based Convergence between HPC and Cloud to handle Big Data will train future data scientists in order to enable them and us to apply holistic and interdisciplinary approaches for taking advantage of a data overwhelmed world, which requires HPC and Cloud infrastructures with a redefinition of storage...

The main objective of this project (MDRAF) was to describe the 3D structure of Mediterranean desert dust outbreaks and study their effects on radiation and atmospheric dynamics by means of numerical modeling (NMMB/BSC Chemical Transport model-NMMB/BSC-CTM). Moreover, the meteorological feedbacks and the forecasting accuracy of NMMB/BSCCTM when dust effects are considered were...

Energy efficiency is a generic term which refers to the ratio between the useful energy output of a process and the energy input to this process. The interest on building more energy-efficient DC has increased along with the outburst of Cloud computing, the use of Internet and of Data Centres (DC) to enable this paradigm. Whereas energy efficiency is necessary to reduce...

The EUBrazilCC project was a first step towards providing a user-centric, cross-Atlantic test bench for European & Brazilian research communities. EUBrazilCC was centred in practical scientific use cases, and it is built on a close collaboration among European & Brazilian excellence centres.

EUBrazilCC exploited & coordinated, through a 2...

Adapting Service lifeCycle towards EfficienT (ASCETiC) was focused on providing novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying, and running software in Clouds. At the same time, quality of service, experience and perception was taken into account, so...

Data-centres form the central brains and store for the Information Society and are a key resource for innovation and leadership. The key challenge has recently moved from just delivering the required performance, to include consuming reduced energy and lowering cost of ownership. Together, these create an inflection point that provides a big opportunity for Europe, which...

The COMPOSE project aimed at enabling new services that can seamlessly integrate real and virtual worlds through the convergence of the Internet of Services with the Internet of Things. COMPOSE will achieve this through the provisioning of an open and scalable marketplace infrastructure, in which smart objects are associated to services that can be combined, managed, and...

The main goal of EUBrazilOpenBio was to deploy an e-Infrastructure of open access resources (data, tools, services), to make significant strides towards supporting the needs and requirements of the biodiversity scientific community. This data e-Infrastructure resulted from the federation and integration of substantial individual existing data, cloud, and grid EU and Brazilian...

Climate change is for a large part governed by atmospheric processes, in particular the interaction between radiation and atmospheric components (e.g. aerosols, clouds, greenhouse and trace gases). Some of these components are also those with adverse health effects influencing air quality.

Strengthening the ground-based component of the Earth Observing...
