AARC – the Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration

The AARC2 (the Authentication and Authorisation for Research and Collaboration) project will improve the adoption of federated access among different communities and help to avoid a future in which different e-infrastructures and research collaborations develop and operate independent AAIs. The AARC2 project is continuation to the first AARC project which ended in 2017.

eSTICC – Science Tools for Investigating Climate Change at High Northern Latitudes

The world is experiencing climate change, and this is particularly evident in the polar regions. Scientists are in need of tools for measuring, predicting and evaluating these changes in order to better understand them. The eSTICC center brings together experts in climate and computing to collaborate on advancing precisely such tools. Researchers at the center will collect observational data relating to greenhouse gas emissions, among other things, storing this information in existing databases to make it more readily accessible, and more easily integrated into, existing data.

Euclid – A space mission to map the Dark Universe

Euclid Cosmology Mission is the next cosmology satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA). The main object of Euclid is to solve the mystery of dark energy – why is the expansion of the universe accelerating. Dark energy represents around 75 % of the energy content of the Universe today, and together with dark matter it dominates the Universes' matter-energy content. Both are mysterious and of unknown nature but control the past, present and future evolution of Universe.

Tryggve2 – Nordic Sensitive Data project

Public registers, biobanks, health registers and research projects are examples of actors that collect and store vast amounts of data that has huge potential for advancing scientific research. However, much of the data is sensitive as it includes information on individuals and, naturally, the data needs to be stored and processed so that integrity and privacy of individuals is secured. Enabling the research utilising sensitive data while fulfilling legal requirements for privacy poses a challenge for research supporting e-Infrastructure.
