Our innovation program focuses on:
- scaling of applications, increase of performance and improved efficiency of usage of the future Petascale infrastructure (e.g. within PRACE EGI, hybrid computing, BiG Grid, Exascale projects)
- development of new services for data-intensive science and e-Science (e.g. EUdat, remote visualization, Hadoop)
- lowering the threshold for the use of ICT research infrastructure for researchers in science, but also gamma-and alpha-scientists through e-Science support and development of interfaces that the complexity of the infrastructure hide and use easier (e.g. Cloud, My e-World, BiG Grid)
- continuous development and engineering of the infrastructure (including the datacenter) through proof-of-concepts, pre-competitive hardware, software and services, and R & D collaborations.
