Bridging 7000+ km to teach fisheries management

Fishery management experts from The Arctic University of Norway are teaching Somali students how to exploit their marine resources. The teaching collaboration features interactive live lectures allowing for two-way communication, questions and discussions.  

Remote music education at 10 Gbits per second

Powerful R&E connectivity enables musicians and actors to learn and perform together, although they are hundreds of kilometers apart.

Creating a model of the Sun as a whole

In the WHOLE SUN project, world leading European solar and stellar physicists join expertise and techniques to create for the first time a global integrated view of our star and extend it to its twins.

Why TROLLing is the thing to do for linguists

Researchers not only need access to relevant scholarly publications, but also to the data sets and the software used to yield the research results. Take a look at the data repository for linguistics, TROLLing. Warning: linguist humour may occur!

Fighting cybercrime in the research & education sector

Research & Education networks play an important part in protecting universities and research facilities from phishing-attempts, DDoS attacks, ransomware, and much more.

Private weather observations to be integrated into forecasting

Observations from the “Internet of things”, such as intelligent cars, phones, buildings and personal weather stations added to the mix can provide detailed information on local to hyper-local meteorological phenomena.

Building expertise for a new era of online artistic collaboration

Two Norwegian universities have launched a joint master programme training musical and artistic collaboration over the Internet, with super-fast connectivity linking two experimental labs, 500 km apart.

Pinpointing air pollution from space

For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.

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 & Education networking in 78 seconds

Wonder what a Research & Education network is all about? The bright people at Norwegien R&E network Uninett have produced a marvelous little video explaining the basics of it all - in just 78 seconds. Take a look and get enlightened!

Ensuring scientists and researchers get their data where it needs to be

Researchers at La Trobe University, Australia, collaborate with colleagues conducting fieldwork at archeological sites across Africa. FileSender, a solution enabling these researchers and thousands of others worldwide to transfer large datasets from the field to the lab, is now benefiting from a new home for sustainable R+E software development.
