Grid Technology for Product Development and Production Process Design (SIMDAT)

09.09.2004


Grid Technology for Product Development and Production Process Design (SIMDAT) - one of 12 EU-funded Research Projects aiming at taking Big Science Processing Power to Business and Citizens



The European Commission will provide a total of Euro 52 million to twelve European research projects, that together aim to bring "Grid" networked computing out of research labs and into industry. Grid tools are seen as key to boosting business competitiveness and helping creation of new markets and services by giving everyone access to the vast computing power and knowledge resources that up to now have only been available to the biggest companies and research centres. By enabling users to monitor and model everything from climate change to how cars behave in collisions, they will also help to improve the quality of life.

Collectively the 12 projects’ goals reflect EU Grid research policy of combining "technology push" (developing underlying technologies and interoperability standards), with "application pull" (developing the enabling technologies needed for real-world applications, such as modelling, simulation, data mining and collaborative working tools). The funding for the projects comes from the EU’s sixth research Framework Programme (FP6).

One of the 12 projects just launched is the SIMDAT project which aims to test and enhance grid technology for product development and production process design as well as to develop federated versions of problem-solving environments by leveraging enhanced Grid services. Further objectives are to exploit data grids as a basis for distributed knowledge discovery as well as to promote de facto standards for these enhanced Grid technologies across a range of disciplines and sectors. A pan-European consortium has been assembled to achieve these important goals. Partners include Fraunhofer-Institute SCAI and Fraunhofer-Institute AIS, EADS Centre Commun de Recherche, ESI Group, MSC.Software GmbH, Lion Bioscience Limited, BAE SYSTEMS (Operations) Limited, AUDI AG, InforSense UK Ltd., Intel GmbH, NEC Europe Ltd., Renault, IT Innovation, The University of Southampton (School of Engineering Sciences), LMS International N.V., Deutscher Wetterdienst, European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, Met Office, Météo-France, ontoprise GmbH, IBM United Kingdom Limited, IDESTYLE Technologies, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Universität Karlsruhe (TH), GlaxoSmithKline Research and Development Ltd., EUMETSAT, ORACLE Deutschland GmbH.

"European Grid Technology Days", a public launch event for the EU-funded Grid projects, is being hosted by the European Commission on 15 September 2004. From the European Commission F. Colasanti, Director General of Information Society will be speaking at the event along with senior figures from European industry and research including Dr. Isidoro Padilla, CEO, Telefónica I+D; Dr. Joachim Schaper, Vice President of SAP; Dr. Steve Sim; General Manager Research, British Telecom; Dr. Gilles Kahn, President and CEO, INRIA France and Dr. John Taylor OBE, ex-Director General UK Research Councils. These and other high level participants will be available for journalists to discuss with.

Im Focus: Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhrchen verwandeln Strom in leuchtende Quasiteilchen

Starke Licht-Materie-Kopplung in diesen halbleitenden Röhrchen könnte zu elektrisch gepumpten Lasern führen

Auch durch Anregung mit Strom ist die Erzeugung von leuchtenden Quasiteilchen aus Licht und Materie in halbleitenden Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhrchen möglich....

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Breitbandlichtquellen mit flüssigem Kern

Jenaer Forschern ist es gelungen breitbandiges Laserlicht im mittleren Infrarotbereich mit Hilfe von flüssigkeitsgefüllten optischen Fasern zu erzeugen. Mit den Fasern lieferten sie zudem experimentelle Beweise für eine neue Dynamik von Solitonen – zeitlich und spektral stabile Lichtwellen – die aufgrund der besonderen Eigenschaften des Flüssigkerns entsteht. Die Ergebnisse der Arbeiten publizierte das Jenaer Wissenschaftler-Team vom Leibniz-Instituts für Photonische Technologien (Leibniz-IPHT), dem Fraunhofer-Insitut für Angewandte Optik und Feinmechanik, der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena und des Helmholtz-Insituts im renommierten Fachblatt Nature Communications.

Aus einem ultraschnellen intensiven Laserpuls, den sie in die Faser einkoppeln, erzeugen die Wissenschaftler ein, für das menschliche Auge nicht sichtbares,...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
