What is the time – really?

Both in science and in society in general there is a rising demand for time accuracy. Extreme accuracy that is, and that involves sophisticated time measuring devices like hydrogen masers and caesium fountains. In the CLONETS projects r&e networks collaborate to deliver high performance clock services.

Chasing gravitational waves with the network

The observation in August 2017, for the first time ever, of the merging of two neutron stars was the result of an important collaboration between the American and Italian interferometers LIGO and VIRGO. This discovery initiates the era of "multimessenger astrophysics," which promises to reveal exciting new insights about the Cosmos.

Leveraging cloud services for better patient care

ARES (Advanced networking for the EU genomic Research) is implementing novel genome content distribution solutions to make large data sets accessible to healthcare practitioners for better patient care. Robust and bottleneck-free data networks are key to the success of this vital undertaking.

Playing with (real) time: antiquities, art and science come together over the network

“I was curious to explore the possibilities of a poetic approach to concepts of presence and absence in different places," says acclaimed director Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, who exploited the brand-new fiber optic connection to the Italian research and education network of major archaeological sites in Rome to create a unique live performance.
