Connecting South Africa to the CERN physicists

Particle physics research datasets that need to be transported to CERN are often large and can require large amounts of bandwidth for short bursts.

Morocco boosts scientific connectivity

A new circuit improves the possibilities for Moroccan researchers to participate in international collaborations such as the high-energy physics experiment ATLAS and the undersea neutrino telescope ANTARES.

International collaboration challenges and solutions for Ukraine’s particle physicists

For Ukrainian researchers at Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology, planned changes to the Large Hadron Collider will bring a challenge. But a new ‘spectrum’ digital highway provided by URAN and the EU-funded EaPConnect project offers a ‘future-proofed’ solution.

Seeking powerful neutrinos off the coast of British Columbia

An Alberta physicist is able is search for high-energy neutrinos in the waters off the coast of Vancouver Island, from his desk in Edmonton, thanks to Canada's National Research and Education Network

Live images from a 600 m long microscope

The European Spallation Source, a 1.843 M euro Big Science infrastructure under construction in Lund, Sweden, will feature an on-demand streaming channel

Supporting Ukrainian scientists’ participation in fundamental research

“It’s a significant contribution by our Institute and Ukraine as a whole to one of the largest experiments... designed to find answers to some of the most important questions for understanding nature"

Watch out Universe! Belarusian scientists can now help unravel your secrets

Belarusian scientist Vitaly Yermolchyk is trying to help unravel the hidden secrets of the Universe. But a bottleneck in network connectivity between his University and CERN –the European Organization for Nuclear Research– has been reducing his ability to participate.

Teaching researchers to write better code

As research becomes increasingly data driven, more and more researchers need tailor-made software for their research projects. The CodeRefinery project is training them to code.

Boosting ultra-sensitive microscopes

Using the HPC Cloud, a new strategy has been developed to make microscopes more sensitive, helping with the study of living organic substances (such as cancer cells).

Thai researchers participate in Large Hadron Collider experiments

Students and researchers work with their peers in the international scientific community, increasing technology transfer and building capacity, while stimulating greater public interest in related fields, such as proton therapy cancer treatment.

Ecuador’s upgraded network fuels groundbreaking research on conservation and biodiversity

The Amazon is the largest and best-known center of biodiversity on the planet, but its forests are being lost at unsustainably high rates. Ongoing research in the Ecuadorian Amazon since the mid-1990s has resulted in concrete environmental benefits for the region and is now supported by a new connection between Ecuador and the United States.

Opening SESAME to the world

The hope was to build a tool that can probe the secrets of the material world. The dream is that such a tool will not just bring world-class science to the Middle East, but also unprecedented cooperation across a conflict-ridden region. In May 2017, that dream came true with SESAME's synchrotron.
