Climate change is heavily 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 also provoke adverse health effects that influence air quality. The EU's IPCC Fourth Assessment Report and Thematic Strategy on air pollution clearly asserts the...

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 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...

Data storage technology today faces many challenges, including performance inefficiencies, inadequate dependability and integrity guarantees, limited scalability, loss of confidentiality, poor resource sharing, and increased ownership and management costs. Given the importance of both direct-attached and networked storage systems for modern applications, it becomes imperative...

At the time of the project, between e-Infrastructures, ESFRI wass identified in FP7 High Performance Computing as a strategic priority for Europe. The cost of the related RI has been steadily increasing as well, in so much as, today, the most advanced computing facilities can be conceived only on trans-national or even continental basis, with a joint contribution of a number...

IS-ENES developed a virtual Earth System Modelling Resource Centre (v.E.R.C.), integrating the European Earth system models (ESMs) and their hardware, software, and data environments. The overarching goal of this e-infrastructure was to further integrate the European climate modelling community, to help the definition of a common future strategy, to ease the development of...

DEISA2, funded under the European Commission's FP7 programme, continued to develop and support distributed high performance computing infrastructure by consolidating the existing infrastructure established during the first phase of the project, DEISA1, and extending the collaborative environment for capability computing and data management. The resulting infrastructure was unmatched in the...

The goal of OGF-EUROPE was to stimulate, co-ordinate and harmonise networked actions on Grid adoption across Europe and globally through reinforcement of the Open Standards message and thus capillary diffusion of the Open Grid Forum (OGF) model to Europe in alignment with OGF mission, strategy and leadership.

OGF-EUROPE aimed to mobilise the Grid...

The European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) has identified High Performance Computing (HPC) as a strategic priority for Europe. Supercomputers are an indispensable tool to solve the most challenging problems through simulations. If Europe is to remain competitive internationally scientists and engineers must be provided with access to capability computers...

ITER is the next generation of fusion devices and is intended to demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion as a sustainable energy source for the future. To exploit the full potential of the device and to guarantee optimal operation for the device a high degree of physics modelling and simulation is needed already in the current construction phase of the...
