EGI: Integrated Sustainable Pan-European Infrastructure for Researchers in Europe (EGI-InSPIRE)
EGI: Integrovaná udržateľná pan-európska infraštruktúra pre vedu v Európe
Program: FP7
Project leader: doc. Ing. Hluchý Ladislav CSc.
Duration: 1.5.2010 – 31.12.2014
Web page: www.egi.eu
Annotation: Scientific research is no longer conducted within national boundaries and is becoming increasing dependent on the large-scale analysis of data, generated from instruments or computer simulations housed in trans-national facilities, by using e-Infrastructure (distributed computing and storage resources linked by high-performance networks).The 48 month EGI-InSPIRE project will continue the transition to a sustainable pan-European e-Infrastructure started in EGEE-III. It will sustain support for Grids of high-performance and high-throughput computing resources, while seeking to integrate new Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs), i.e. Clouds, SuperComputing, Desktop Grids, etc., as they are required by the European user community. It will establish a central coordinating organisation, EGI.eu, and support the staff throughout Europe necessary to integrate and interoperate individual national grid infrastructures. EGI.eu will provide a coordinating hub for European DCIs, working to bring existing technologies into a single integrated persistent production infrastructure for researchers within the European Research Area.EGI-InSPIRE will collect requirements and provide user-support for the current and new (e.g. ESFRI) users. Support will also be given for the current heavy users as they move their critical services and tools from a central support model to ones driven by their own individual communities. The project will define, verify and integrate within the Unified Middleware Distribution, the middleware from external providers needed to access the e-Infrastructure. The operational tools will be extended by the project to support a national operational deployment model, include new DCI technologies in the production infrastructure and the associated accounting information to help define EGI’s future revenue model.

Emergency Responder Data Interoperability Network (REDIRNET)
Systém pre dátovú interoperabilitu záchranných zložiek
Program: FP7
Project leader: doc. Ing. Hluchý Ladislav CSc.
Duration: 1.3.2014 – 31.8.2016

Annotation: Over the past 5 years the majority of the REDIRNET consortia have participated in Projects SECRICOM and FREESIC;this has involved partners engaging significantly with a wide range of public safety officers across the EU. A benefit of thisengagement has been the recognition that in addition to agency interoperability of communications a pressing need existsfor agency interoperability of additional IT systems such as databases, sensor systems and cameras. REDIRNET providesa framework for addressing this need with detailed mapping of user preferences and related legal requirements usinginnovative technologies.The consortium is aware that frequently it is non-technical issues that hinder agency interoperability regardless of the qualityof technical solutions. Consequently user engagement across a range of agencies EU-wide will be ongoing throughout theduration of REDIRNET. This will lead to the first of two elements of the REDIRNET framework – a quality repository of useridentified interoperability issues and proposals for their resolutionThe second element of REDIRNET will be technology. REDIRNET will provide a decentralized framework for interoperabilityfor first responders’ systems based on a public meta-data gateway controlled by the agencies themselves via a REDIRNETsocio-professional web. Agencies will be able link up to partner agencies of their choice and operational need; they will alsobe able to manage the scope of such interoperability. To help set up these link-up arrangements REDIRNET will be enhancedwith semantic web methods in accordance with the vocabulary and processes of the user community. Inter-operatingagencies will need only to develop one gateway (to REDIRNET) leading to a cost effective solution; agent technologies willalso be developed to facilitate the integration of user systems into REDIRNET.
Technology for the Production of Massively Parallel Intelligent Cantilever – Probe Platform for Nanoscale Analysis and Synthesis
Technológia výroby matice paralelných inteligentných nosníkov –sondových platform pre analýzu a syntézu v nanometrovej oblasti
Program: FP6
Project leader: RNDr. Kostič Ivan
Duration: 1.4.2005 – 30.9.2010
Web page: www.pronano.org
Annotation: Scanning proximity probes (SPP) are uniquely powerful tools for analysis, manipulation and bottom-up synthesis: they are capable of addressing and engineering surfaces at the atomic level and are the key to unlocking the full potential of Nanotechnology.Current SPP nanotools are limited to single probes with pitifully slow processing rates and, even at the research level, attempts at multiprobe systems have achieved only a 32 x 32 array. This could be a terminal limitation for the future of Nanotechnology, in particular for bottom-up manufacturing, with little prospect for economic throughputs, unless 2-dimensional massively parallel probe arrays can be realised.Such a development would revolutionise Nanotechnology, triggering an avalanche of new products and processes in a wide range of applications including surface chemistry, materials and the life-health industries. This ground-breaking technology development is the ambitious principal aim of this proposal. Generic massively parallel intelligent cantilever-probe platforms will be produced through a number of existing and ground-breaking techniques.The ultimate product will be a packaged VLSI NEMS-chip (Very Large Scale Integrated Nano Electro Mechanical System) incorporating 128×128 proximal probes, fully addressable with control and readout interconnects and advanced software.To validate this novel technology, a series of demonstrations are planned where relevant SMEs will use this technology to carry out sub-10 nm metrology for high throughput manufacturing. Furthermore selected key applications and the results will be used to educate and inform in support of the development of new nanotechnology processes and products.It is the aim of PRONANO that the new massively parallel scanning probe nanotools with VLSI ASNEMS (application specific nanoelectromechanical systems) chips inside should empower nanotechnologists and drive the rapid development of nanoscience, leading to new nanotechnology processes and their industrial exploitation. They will secure the future of nanotechnology with economic throughputs leading to new manufacturing industries.

Annotation: The VENIS project is aimed at bridging the gap of interoperability between Large and Medium-Small-MicroEnterprises, according to the “Virtual Organisation” paradigm:- a distributed and secure repository to share the information contained in the file systems, databases, ERPs,CRMs, and other legacy applications of the enterprises, connecting the IT Infrastructures from Large to Microenterprises;- a set of lightweight web services for the smart integration of the information exchanged in joint works, based onlegacy email systems and boosted by semantic annotations and search;- a distributed processes engine mechanism, able to link and execute the enterprises business processes, toassist the work in joint businesses and to create novel synergies in products supply chains.Latest documents and multimedia, meeting planning, joint work flow and milestones, etc. will be then easilyavailable to all the persons involved both from Large to Micro enterprises, while leaving almost unchanged thealready existing legacy procedures.The Consortium, composed by 7 Partners skilled in international collaboration, is well balanced in expertisebetween technology developers and final users. The VENIS results will be disseminated on the Web and inInternational Conferences, thanks to the creation of a VENIS Community of users,Boosted by VENIS, the involved Enterprises expect to improve their competitive edge in joint projects, byexploiting the project results in their joint business and towards external market, bringing an estimated 15-20%increase of business during the 3 years following the end of the project.
