A Nobel Prize for Peter Higgs & François Englert

Over 45 years ago Peter Higgs and François Englert independently proposed a new theory of how particles acquire mass. Following the confirmation of the theory, through the discovery of the Higgs Boson at CERN, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences today awarded the two men the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2013.

CloudWATCH project launched

Last week EGI helped launch CloudWATCH, a new European project that will identify, evaluate and recommend standards profiles to cloud computing providers and users across Europe. The project will also create a long-term sustainable, digital platform to showcase the results of European cloud computing research and development projects.

BioVeL: The Perfect Cloud User Candidate

The CloudCaps study has released its first report and highlighted the BioVeL community as one that could use the EGI Federated Cloud to its fullest potential. The two are now collaborating to optimise the software BioVeL uses and demonstrate how cloud technologies could make web services and workflows sustainable for the long term for biodiversity research in Europe.

The trans-Atlantic connection

EGI has signed an agreement with its American counterpart, the Open Science Grid. This will lead to improved interoperability, communications and resource sharing between the two benefitting researchers both sides of the Atlantic.
