Optimizing an airplane wing more precisely than ever before

Engineers used research networks and supercomputing in two countries to inform the design of airplane wings that will make airplanes lighter, reducing fuel consumption and the number of raw materials used in construction

Artists from three countries perform live via video links

A music and dance performance in Copenhagen included live feeds of musicians in London and dancers in Barcelona. Thanks to LOLA technology the synchronised effect was as if they were all physically present on the same stage.

Rewriting the history of human beings with DNA

Eske Willerslev, one of the world’s leading experts in ancient DNA, DNA degradation, and evolutionary biology, is using powerful DNA sequencing technology to reveal fundamentally new insights, reconstructing the past 50.000 years of human history.

Dedicated line between supercomputers saves time for biomedical researchers

A dedicated line between two supercomputers in Denmark allows biomedical researchers to share data faster and easier than before, helping them carry out their research into the relationship between genetics and psychiatric illnesses.

Saving the stars for the future

In 2009, NASA launched the Kepler space observatory to discover Earth-size planets orbiting other stars. For four and a half years, Kepler photographed a small 10-by-10 degrees section of the sky, taking snapshots each minute. "This is a goldmine of data, and we won’t see anything quite like it in the foreseeable future," explains Rasmus Handberg from the Stellar Astrophysics Centre at Aarhus University, Denmark.

Educating the future global musician

The Global Audition Training Programme aims to expand the skill set of student musicians, no matter where in the world they live, and prepare them for today’s multifaceted professional landscape.

The digital recycling centre is slowly going global

Instead of managing a vast amount of user names and passwords we want one digital identity, a “passport” reusing login information and giving us secure and easy access to all the services and resources we require to study, do research, and collaborate with colleagues across borders.

Creating a roadmap for a new European heating infrastructure

The Heat Roadmap Europe project has set out to map the demand for heating and cooling in 14 European countries, along with the potential sources of surplus and renewable heating and cooling that could be used to supply this demand. The aim is to decarbonise the heating sector of Europe over the next 30-40 years.

Renewable energy for meteorology supercomputer

Three research networks are working together to provide the lifeline of a new meteorology supercomputer running on renewable energy. Through a 10 Gbps redundant fiberoptic cable running 2250 km across the North Atlantic, the Danish Meteorology Institute in Copenhagen connects to its new supercomputer located on Iceland.

Supercomputing at the trench edge

Danish archaeologists team up with experts in high performance computing to enable fast and intensive 3D recording for field archaeology.
