At the time, EUDAT was the proposal for the next stage in the realisation of the vision of “data as infrastructure”. The EUDAT consortium included representatives from each stage of the value chain that has evolved to deliver scientific knowledge to researchers, citizens, industry and society as a whole. It included funding agencies that invest in research...

In response to the call for a high impact initiative on the human epigenome, the BLUEPRINT Consortium was formed with the aim of generating at least 100 reference epigenomes and studying them to advance and exploit knowledge of the underlying biological processes and mechanisms in health and disease. BLUEPRINT focused on distinct types of haematopoietic cells from...

Food and energy security are major challenges facing humanity in the coming decades. The falling costs of nucleotide sequencing are opening up significant opportunities for crop improvement through plant breeding and increased understanding of plant biology; in particular through interpreting the growing volume of plant genomics data in the context of phenotype. However, at...

PRACE 2IP supported the accelerated implementation of the pan-European HPC Research Infrastructure created in April 2010 as the result of the preparatory phase PRACE project. It complemented and extended the work of the PRACE 1IP project that started in July 2010.

PRACE 2IP addressed the computational and simulation needs of European scientific...

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 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...

To maximise the scientific output of a high-performance computing system, different stakeholders pursue different strategies. While individual application developers are trying to shorten the time to solution by optimising their codes, system administrators are tuning the configuration of the overall system to increase its throughput. Yet, the complexity of today’s...

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...
