CloudSME

Simulation can significantly improve the competitive position of manufacturing and engineering companies by reducing their costs and resulting in more efficient development, production, procurement, logistics or financial processes. However, the take-up of simulation software by SMEs has until now been low due to high barriers of entry that include hardware prices, licensing costs and technical expertise. The CloudSME project will develop a cloud-based, one-stop-shop solution that will significantly lower these barriers, provide a scalable platform for small or larger scale simulations, and enable the wider take-up of simulation technologies in manufacturing and engineering SME’s.

DOE USA, CASL: Consortium for Advanced Simulation of LWRs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As part of a broad effort to spur innovation and achieve clean energy breakthroughs, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman today announced the selection of a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for an award of up to $122 million over five years to establish and operate a new Nuclear Energy Modeling and Simulation Energy Innovation Hub. The Hub, which includes partners from universities, industry and other national labs, will use advanced capabilities of the world’s most powerful computers to make significant leaps forward in nuclear reactor design and engineering (Read more).

FP7: LOTHERM

Thermal management in Information Society Technologies remains a major problem to be solved, especially in novel electronic devices such as increasingly miniaturised microchips, hard disks and interfaces between biological structures (e.g. nerve cells) and semiconductor micro and nanostructures. The NOVMAG consortium consists of several European research teams with long-standing experience in investigating heat transport on a microscopic as well as on a macroscopic level. It aims at exploiting a new highly effcient magnetic mode of thermal.
