EU Network of Excellence for more resilient Critical Infrastructures
»CIPRNet« aims at establishing a European Infrastructures Simulation & Analysis Centre
The EU-sponsored Critical Infrastructure Preparedness and Resilience Research Network (CIPRNet) project will establish a European Infrastructures Simulation and Analysis Centre. This center will provide substantial improvements for fast and adequate responses by authorities and critical infrastructure owners to complex emergencies affecting or originating from critical infrastructures. The research network will integrate knowledge and technologies to create added-value decision support capabilities for national and multi-nation emergency management.
New big data survey shows potential for business
For the first time ever, a total 1.8 zettabytes of data were generated worldwide last year – and according to forecasts, the volume will continue to double every two years. So, one key question we can ask today is: How can we utilize these mountains of data better? A survey by the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS is now shedding light on the topic of “big data”. It reveals opportunities and challenges for business. To give companies some orientation concerning big data technologies and applications, the researchers develop an experimentation platform which will be shown at CeBIT fair 2013.
