With increasing demand from business for higher efficiency, business agility, and lower cost, for several years information communication technologies have been shifting from static silos with manually managed applications towards dynamic virtual shared environments.
BEinGRID (Business Experiments in GRID) aims to support this development by fostering the adoption of Grid technologies across the EU and stimulating research into associated innovative business models.
The use of Grid technology brings many benefits such as better utilisation of IT resources, security enhancements and increased flexibility due to global access to resources through standard web-browsers. Especially in the manufacturing sector, Grid Computing can speed up interactions between designers, specialized research groups and suppliers, by providing quick access to shared relevant data and high-performance computing resources.
Despite these benefits, the commercial exploitation of Grid solutions across the European Union is still being kept back by the lack of reference cases to persuade potential users. BEinGRID has undertaken a series of targeted Business Experiments across a broad spectrum of European business sectors, including the media, financial, logistics, manufacturing, retail and textile sectors.A compiled showcase of these pilot applications called "Better Business Using Grid Solutions" is now available for free. Featured solutions include high-end simulation environments via web browsers for engineers, automatic supply chain management in partner Grids, virtual reality applications in architecture, Voice over IP and mobile video conferencing, data backup, risk and sales management the financial business, and many more.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
