Migrating birds turn Finns into citizen scientists

Thousands of citizens in Finland have responded to a call to report their observations of migrating birds. So far, approximately 3.7 million recordings were submitted.

How computers can speed up drug discovery

In a joint project, University of Eastern Finland and Finland's R&E network CSC have cut down a key procedure in drug discovery from four months to 10 days.

Understanding the mechanics of solar storms

“Simple pen and paper are not enough; numerical modelling is needed. This kind of modelling is also challenging because of many different time and other scales, and it requires supercomputer resources,” says Professor Maarit Korpi-Lagg.

Forecasting glacier outburst floods

A European project will enable the prediction of flooding from glaciers that threaten settled areas and infrastructure.

Finns pioneer small language processing

With assistance from a supercomputer, a Finnish research group has developed the first comprehensive Finnish language model.

Predicting tsunamis through quantum computing

In Finland, a new type of supercomputer merges conventional supercomputing with quantum computing. An application could be calculating in near-real-time how a tsunami will develop.

Nordic climate researchers stronger together

Thanks to an EU open science program, the climate researchers in each Nordic country do not need to create their models of the Nordic climate system from scratch.

Towards safe automated navigation at sea

High-performance computing and artificial intelligence are the cornerstones of a Finnish project to develop safe automated navigation for marine vessels.

Making cross-border cancer research collaboration safe and secure

SURF's Research Cloud makes cutting-edge collaborative cancer research faster, more cost-effective and more impactful.

Relief ahead for dry irritated eyes with help from supercomputing

Gazing into computer screens for hours contributes to millions of people suffering from dry eye syndrome. Backed by supercomputing, Finnish researchers suggest better eye drop treatment.

Enabling researchers to reuse sensitive biomedical data

CSC has recently developed new services for sensitive data management for research so that data from more patients can be shared and analysed to fast-track discoveries.

Digital twins help prepare for climate change

A new European initiative, Destination Earth, will use models of Earth sub-systems to assist authorities in preparing for extreme weather events related to climate change.
