Improving gastric cancer survival rates in Central Asia

R&E networks help save lives by powering interactive remote training of endoscopists on novel techniques for early stomach cancer diagnosis and treatment.

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. R&E networks forward the data to processing facilities, thus contributing to meeting near-real-time requirements.

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).

Cooperation with Mozambique: from telehealth to cybersecurity

A collaboration between Brazil and Mozambique involving training and knowledge sharing has yielded beneficial results in a number of areas ranging from telehealth to cybersecurity.

International researchers can now map the universe with Murchison

To ensure seamless and secure global research collaborations the MWA telescope has connected to eduGAIN.

Singapore and Sapporo scenic sites come to life via R&E network link

In February 2018 spectators in Singapore were enchanted by crystal clear video images of the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan whilst viewers in Japan could remotely take in the beauty of Singapore's iconic Botanic Gardens: long-distance cultural exchange powered by cutting-edge video technology and high-speed R&E network links.

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.

Supporting women in ICT

The West and Central African Research and Education Network is forging strategic partnerships to support women in ICT, demonstrating its commitment to opening windows of opportunities for women, historically underrepresented in STEM fields.

Casting your digital vote with Zeus

Zeus is a highly successful online voting system with ultra-high security, excluding any possibility of tampering with the result, together with guaranteeing full voter anonymity. 

How science engagers fight the ”Sneaker Net”

Many scientists are still moving hard drives or USB flash drives around although they don’t need to. They have a high-speed Research & Education Network at their service, but they are not taking full advantage of the networking resources available to them. This is where the Science Engager comes in.

Cross-border concert showcases unique technology for teaching and performance

‘Music Without Borders’ using LoLA low latency data transmission technology was enjoyed by Ministers and Ambassadors from around Europe and Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries.
