Research & Development (R&D) statistics is one of the key indices and important component in measuring a country’s National Innovation System (NIS). The R&D landscape has changed so much within the 21st century. Many countries are categorized as developed or developing based on their ability or inability to rise with the tide of research and technological advancement. Poor research funding,...
41. Energising Scientific Endeavour through Science Gateways and e-Infrastructures in Africa: the Sci-GaIA project
Roberto Barbera (Univesity of Catania and INFN)
In African Communities of Practice (CoPs), international collaboration and the pursuit of scientific endeavour has faced a major barrier with the lack of access to e-Infrastructures and high performance network infrastructure enjoyed by European counterparts. With the AfricaConnect and the just-about-to-start AfricaConnect2 projects and the regional developments carried out by both the...

Modern scientific discovery has followed modern innovation. We’ve enjoyed over 50years of Moore’s Law, over which computing capability has grown at near 50% compounded, in-turn driving model/simulation-driven scientific discovery. More recently then number of devices on the Internet has grown at a similar rate, and sensing capabilities have grown at half that rate, both driving data-driven...
46. Next generation Science Gateways in the context of the INDIGO project: a pilot case on large scale climate change data analytics
Emidio Giorgio (INFN Catania)
The INDIGO project aims at developing a data/computing platform targeted at scientific communities, deployable on multiple hardware, and provisioned over hybrid e-Infrastructures. This platform features contributions from leading European distributed resource providers, developers, and users from various Virtual Research Communities (VRCs). INDIGO aims to develop tools and platforms based on...
