1. Creating innovative spin-out companies

Record Control Number : 16105

Date : 2001-01-12

Category : Event

General Information :

A conference organised by the European Commission's Enterprise DG on the creation of spin-out companies based on research results will take place in Luxembourg on 22 February.

The conference will draw on good practice in supporting the creation of spin-out companies from universities and research institutes all over the world, and discuss how these good practices can be applied across the EU and the associated States. The event is expected to provide a launch pad for a Europe-wide network of spin-out support and technology transfer professionals to be supported by the Enterprise DG's Innovation Policy Unit.

Presentations on a number of key issues will take place, for example, the roles of the public and private sectors in bridging the 'conversion' gap, recent policy initiatives and network creation and effective programme design and project management.

The conference will be of particular interest to university and research institute technology transfer professionals, spin-out support programme managers, incubator managers, early-stage investors and policymakers and researchers working in innovation and technology transfer.

2. A new service to monitor innovation policies hosted on CORDIS

Record Control Number : 16110

Date : 2001-01-12

Category : Programme implementation

General Information :

CORDIS, the European R&D Information Service, hosts yet a new service to help policymakers and managers learn about innovative national policies and build upon successful experiences.

The Trendchart web service hosts a searchable database service referencing innovation policy measures (innovation finance, company startups, intellectual property rights, technology transfer) from more than 40 countries, including accession countries. The service also provides users with key statistics and trends, list of contacts, thematic reports and news.

This new service is a valuable source as a European forum for benchmarking and the exchange of 'good practices' on innovation policy.

3. EU funds the Grid

Record Control Number : 16112

Date : 2001-01-15

Category : Programme implementation

General Information :

'The Grid', the next generation of the world wide web, is set to receive 9.8 million euro of funds from the European Commission's Fifth RTD Framework programme. The funds will come from the Information Society Technologies programme (IST) .

Researchers working on the Grid hope to produce a system, which is able to cope better with the increasing flow of information in cyberspace. The high speed network would link people with collaborative tools and supercomputers, processor farms, disks, major databases and informatics.

At last year's Lisbon summit, European leaders agreed to launch the DataGrid initiative with the objective of developing a dedicated network for European science applications research. The aim is to develop and demonstrate an informatic architecture distributed throughout Europe by high-rate data transmission links.

The EU contribution to the project will be spread over 3 years and a contract has been awarded to the Swiss-based European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) as project leader. There are five other partners, including: the Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France) ; the European Space Agency's centre in Frascati, Italy (ESA/ESRIN) ; the Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN, Italy) ; the Dutch National Institute for Nuclear physics and high energy physics (NIKHEF, The Netherlands) ; and the UK Particle physics and astronomy research council (PPARC) .

'Through the DataGrid project, a novel distributed computing environment, specifically designed to analyse and move vast amounts of data, will be developed and deployed. It will build on emerging Grid technologies, using open source code to create a new world wide data and computational grid on a scale not previously attempted, a World Wide Grid,' reports the European Space Agency.

'This project is seen by international computing experts and EU authorities as an ideal test case for the development of a new model of world-wide distributed computing and the natural evolution of the world wide web,' adds CERN, which is counting on using the DataGrid in the near future:

'One of the first challenges for the DataGrid will be to handle the mass of data generated by CERN's next accelerator the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which starts up in 2005...The computing power required to handle and process these data at CERN is estimated to be equivalent to about 100,000 of today's PC computers. At least three times the same power will be needed in the collaborating institutes world-wide. Clearly CERN and the four LHC collaborations cannot financially and practically sustain this effort...for this reason CERN is placing its trust in the Grid.'
