According to an article published on Science|Business, recognising that innovation requires market acceptance, Horizon 2020 will invest €462 million over the next seven years on a new programme, ‘Science with and for society’. Science|Business looks at the plan for the first two years.

 

Science needs people – to join its ranks as future scientists, to ensure its objectives are properly aligned to needs, and to ensure its innovations find market acceptance. Yet the numbers pursuing careers in science and technology fail to meet demand, science is still perceived as a male domain, and a recent Eurobarometer survey found that 58 per cent of people feel they are not well-informed about the outputs of publicly-funded science.

According to an article published on Datanami, it’s difficult enough to keep track of the ebb and flow of new tools that span the big data ecosystem, let alone keeping tabs on the latest measures and standards by which to evaluate the influx. While there are standards for a number of specific application areas, architectures, and programmatic approaches, it’s difficult to get a more comprehensive view across solutions and system-wide needs.

A programmable use of the CHAIN-REDS Semantic Search Engine is now possible thanks to a simple RESTful API which has been developed on purpose by INFN. The API allows to get and reuse the millions of open access resources contained  in the CHAIN-REDS Knowledge Base and stored in a Virtuoso RDF-compliant database.

According to an announcement published on isgtw, the Human Brain Project (HBP) is a major EU-funded international neuroscience and ICT research initiative, which was launched earlier this year. Its High-Performance Computing Platform Subproject, run by Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany, is inviting all interested potential suppliers to an "Open Dialogue on Pre-Commercial Procurement". Participants will meet with the HBP's HPC team in Brussels on 18 December 2013 to discuss technical challenges raised by this ambitious project, as well as practical implementation issues.

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a large-scale, European-led scientific collaborative project, which aims to gather all existing knowledge about the human brain, build multi-scale models of the brain that integrate this knowledge and use these models to simulate the brain on supercomputers. The resulting “virtual brain” offers the prospect of a fundamentally new and improved understanding of the human brain, opening the way for better treatments for brain diseases and for novel, brain-like computing technologies.

Research infrastructures refers to any facilities, resources or related services that are used or could be used by the scientific community to conduct top level research in their various disciplines. We are currently gathering all accessible information regarding RIs in Africa and would like your support. If you have any relevant information, please contact iMentors to help create an exhaustive database. Better still, you can update the database yourself at www.imentors.eu

According to an article published on  iSGTW , iSGTW was at the EUDAT second conference in Rome, Italy. EUDAT, which is funded under the European Commission's FP7 scheme, seeks to support a collaborative data infrastructure which will allow researchers to share data within and between communities and enable them to carry out their research effectively. Now two years into the project, the EUDAT team is ready to provide solutions that will be affordable, trustworthy, robust, persistent, and easy to use. These solutions are B2SAFE to replicate research data safely, B2SHARE to store and share long-tail research data, B2FIND to find research data, and B2STAGE to get data to computation. These are also to be followed by new services, such as Dynamic Data and Semantic Annotation, which were discussed intensively during the conference.
