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.

Helping scientists analyse their data

One of the major trends in scientific research is the increase in data volume. Science is increasingly data-driven when datasets are on the tera-scale level. Once, only particle physicists produced these huge amounts of data, but now many other branches of science do too and a new service aims to make crunching these data easier for researchers.

EISCAT 3D radar– studying the interaction between Sun and Earth

The Nordic research and education networks are preparing to put a whole new network infrastructure in place for EISCAT 3D, as the powerful new radar is situated in remote northern Scandinavia to assure a minimum of background noise. For the next 35 to 40 years to come, it will be the centerpiece of the international network of instruments monitoring the Earth’s upper atmosphere and space environment.

Two pipe organs 2,000 km apart in concert

Because of its sheer size, a pipe organ is bound to the location where it’s situated, making it very rare for organists to be able to play together. Until now. A magic moment occurred at theTNC16 research and education network conference in Prague: two organs more than 2000 km apart will play a concert together, thus creating a completely new musical experience.

Processing sensitive data for schizophrenia research

Swedish researchers are incorporating sensitive register data in their cross-border analyses of the interaction between genetic and environmental factors for schizophrenia. Thanks to Tryggve, a new Nordic initiative to advance the utilization of sensitive biomedical data.

Education across borders: building the Ugandan media sector

The Research and Education Network for Uganda is helping one of the country's universities, the Ugandan Christian University offer PhD and Master of Journalism and Media Studies Progammes online in collaboration with the University of Kwazulu Natal in South Africa and the NLA University College in Norway.
