InterLink Online Public Consultation
The international research community is warmly invited to actively participate in the InterLink open electronic consultation, and to contribute to shape the content and structure of future international R&D activities.
One of the main objectives of InterLink is to define joint basic research agendas, in terms of research priorities, road-mapping activities and joint Research and Technological Development (RTD) initiatives in the thematic areas of Software intensive systems and new computing paradigms, ambient computing and communication, and Intelligent and cognitive systems.
Towards this goal, InterLink launched an open electronic consultation on major challenges, promising research directions, and effective forms of international collaboration in the addressed Thematic Areas. The first phase of the on line consultation, which will last until 30th April 2008, focuses on the State-of-the-Art in the three thematic areas addressed by InterLink. The corresponding State-of-the-Art are available at:
InterLink is a coordination action funded by the European Commission. It aims at advancing Europe’s knowledge in a number of critical Information and Communication Science and Technologies areas, at promoting European solutions and knowledge world-wide and at influencing the way research in these areas would evolve internationally. InterLink will enable the European research community to interact with research communities outside Europe and link with the best research carried out in these countries.
Scientific coordination of InterLink is headed by the Institute of Computer Science, Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas while the management of the project is ensured by ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
