2019-08-09 Almere All H2020 funding for HPC has been transferred to EuroHPC, has it not? All EuroHPC projects are funded fifty-fifty by EuroHPC and participating countries, are they not? The answers may come as a surprise to you: there is still a considerable amount of HPC funding that surfaced in H2020 and for some research projects the EuroHPC funding is 100%. To help you in your quest to find the right HPC funding opportunity we have compiled a list of all open and future EuroHPC and H2020 HPC Calls. Read further...

Stanford researcher develops data standards for brain imaging and applies rigorous computational methods to work

ApplicationsIn recent years, efforts to understand the workings of the mind have taken on new-found urgency. Not only are psychological and neurological disorders - from Alzheimer's disease and strokes to autism and anxiety - becoming more widespread, new tools and methods have emerged that allow scientists to explore the structure of, and activity within, the brain with greater granularity.

Researchers embrace imperfection to improve biomolecule transport

HardwareWhile watching the production of porous membranes used for DNA sorting and sequencing, University of Illinois researchers wondered how tiny steplike defects formed during fabrication could be used to improve molecule transport. They found that the defects - formed by overlapping layers of membrane - make a big difference in how molecules move along a membrane surface. Instead of trying to fix these flaws, the team set out to use them to help direct molecules into the membrane pores. Read further...
