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.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
