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.

Quantum computing predicts Finnish housing prices

A project involving Finland's research and education network is working on a new tool for complex calculations.
