Better dosages for children sick with cancer

Crunching large data sets, researchers are able to identify a specific genetic cause in one of seven young cancer patients. This allows for prescribing more accurate doses of medicine, avoiding unnecessary side effects

Closing in on the genetics behind psychiatric diseases

The international iPSYCH project identifies genes related to specific mental illnesses to inspire development of better medicine and earlier diagnosis.

Developing a global model for solar energy

Researchers have designed a uniquely detailed and precise model of solar energy potential on a global scale, and they are offering their data free of charge for everybody to use.

Data Stewards to the rescue, please!

According to experts, the world needs Data Stewards. Estimates say, that in Europe alone 500.000 will be needed over the coming years. Research & education networks are contributing to make that happen.

Clearing the path to seismological data

The EOSC-hub project is establishing a single contact point for European researchers to access and use resources for advanced data-driven research in fields such as seismology.

Dramatic housing transformation in sub-Saharan Africa revealed

By using sophisticated Big Data based geospatial software researchers have revealed a remarkable development: Between 2000 and 2015, housing with improved water and sanitation, sufficient living area and durable construction has doubled in sub-Saharan Africa.

Following the stars 24×7

SONG, the Stellar Observations Network Group is creating a network of small, interconnected, robotic telescopes scattered across the globe, to be able to focus on one specific point in the sky for days, weeks and months on end.

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.

Protecting the research & education sector against cyber attacks

As cyber attacks increase steadily in frequency and scale, the importance of defending ones own network against attackers increases as well. That is why many R&E networks have a Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT, to handle security incidents.

Research network connects hospital gene equipment to supercomputer

Without a direct connection across the Danish NREN, the national hospital Rigshospitalet would not have been able to use its new gene sequencing equipment.
