The HPC/Exascale Centre of Excellence in Personalised Medicine (PerMedCoE) aims to provide an efficient and sustainable entry point to the HPC/Exascale-upgraded methodology to translate omics analyses into actionable models of cellular functions of medical relevance.
PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is the European high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. PRACE has 25 members, representing European Union Member States and Associated Countries. PRACE hosts the leading-edge HPC systems in Europe (Tier-0 systems). CSC represents Finland in the PRACE projects, and provides a seamless route to the Tier-0 resources for Finnish researchers.
The E-CAM (European HPC Centre of Excellence) is an e-infrastructure for software development, training, and industrial discussion in simulation and modelling. The E-CAM project focuses on four scientific areas of interest to computational scientists: Classical Molecular Dynamics, Electronic Structure, Quantum Dynamics, Meso- and Multi-Scale Modelling.
Data analytics, big data and artificial intelligence are the major tools for modern companies to achieve large-scale competitive advantages. The target of this project is to speed-up the up-take of data analytics methods in regional companies and in the Kainuu region as whole. The project creates a straightforward process for companies and institutions to quickly try out the possibilities of data analytics and to launch new data driven solutions.
CINECA aims to provide a standardized, secure and scalable discovery and analysis infrastructure for data collected from the national cohorts and disease collections. The CINECA consortium includes access to more than 1.4 million samples maintained by the biobank network in Europe, Africa and Canada.
The Arrowhead Tools project aims for digitalisation and automation solutions for the European industry, which will close the gaps that hinder the IT/OT integration by introducing new technologies in an open source platform for the design and run-time engineering of IoT and System of Systems.
The project implements a practical approach to address the potential of cloud based open science to achieve a set of services identifying also longer term challenges to build and demonstrate the Pilot Blue Cloud as a thematic EOSC cloud to support research to better understand & manage the many aspects of ocean sustainability, through a set of five pilot Blue-Cloud demonstrators.
NordForum is an informal collaboration initiative between the national providers of Student Information Systems in four Nordic countries, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and the Netherlands. NordForum aims to share experiences, ideas and best practices and to identify possibilities for cooperation with long term as well as short term goals.
SeaDataNet connects together more than 100 data centres aiming at preserving and making re-useable marine observations ranging from ocean physics to chemistry and biology. It provides a standardized infrastructure for managing the large and diverse data sets collected by the oceanographic fleets and the automatic observation systems. The SeaDataNet infrastructure networks and enhances the currently existing infrastructures, which are the national oceanographic data centres or data focal points of 34 countries, active in data collection. The networking of these professional data centres, in a unique virtual data management system provide integrated data sets of standardized quality on-line.
FAIRsFAIR, as a part of the EOSC framework, aims to supply practical solutions for the use of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle. The emphasis is on fostering FAIR data culture and the uptake of good practices in making data FAIR.
The Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) is an organisation that facilitates the development and operation of high-quality e-Infrastructure solutions in areas of joint Nordic interest. The NeIC is a distributed organisation consisting of technical experts from academic high-performance computing centres across the Nordic countries. The NeIC is administered by NordForsk and funded by national research funding agencies (in Finland by the Academy of Finland).
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.
The aim of this project is to strengthen the competitiveness of the target group companies by developing KAMK's expertise and education in industrial operation and maintanance management.
HYTELI - Wellbeing, health care and sports innovation platforms The aim of the project is to develop technologically advanced innovation platforms and environments in order to increase the international level of technology expertise and boost the competitiveness in the Kainuu area, located in north-eastern Finland.
The Nordic countries collaborate actively on network services for Higher Education Institutions and research community. Collaboration started already in 1980 and NORDUnet was founded in 1985. NORDUnet is a joint collaboration by the 5 Nordic National Research and Education Networks in Denmark (DeIC), Finland (Funet), Iceland (RHnet), Norway (UNINETT) and Sweden (SUNET). NORDUnet is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a global bottom-up initiative building the technical and social bridges for data sharing and exchange, to address grand challenges and accelerate data driven innovation worldwide.
Knowledge Exchange (KE) is a co-operative effort – tasked with developing infrastructure and services to enable the use of digital technologies to improve higher education and research, and promoting open science and research.
The FIN-CLARIN research infrastructure provides researchers analysis tools and access to a wide collection of digital language resources centralized through the Language Bank. The project entitled FIN-CLARIN Upgrade will continue the Language Bank development and make CSC's supercomputing capacity easier to use for researchers.
