  European astroparticle physics points the way

Photo of article What is the Universe made of? What are gravitational waves and dark matter? These fundamental questions are being studied by astroparticle physics, a field whose time has come. It has been described as the point where particle physics meets astrophysics – or where the infinitely small meets the infinitely large. This has been an emerging field for the last ten years with the potential for some thrilling discoveries. From laboratories beneath the sea, deep underground, in the middle of remote deserts or out in space, scientists are taking on new challenges, with Europe at the forefront. Over the next few years very large scientific instruments will be developed in order to detect some of the most elusive particles in existence, and uncover the mysteries of our Universe.

  European Scientists prepare to test the limits of Physics

Photo of article European Scientists are gearing up for a series of experiments that will probe deeper into the nature of matter than ever before. At the end of August the Scientific Information Port (PIC), a centre for technology based at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) began work on the first stage of the European project Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The aim of the project is to study the origins of matter by reproducing conditions similar to those produced during the Big Bang. The PIC, as well as other computational centres around the world, began receiving data concerning cosmic rays collected using Atlas, a large ‘‘general purpose’’ particle detector. This information is to be used to test the system before the LHC starts up in the spring of 2008.

  Poland connects with Europe-wide ICT research consortium

Photo of article The European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics recently increased its numbers to 18 following the addition of two Polish universities, the University of Warsaw and the University of Wroclaw. The two universities formed a consortium of their own in a move to become the Polish branch of the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, or ERCIM, network which fosters international research cooperation in ICT. Poland joins Hungary and the Czech Republic as the third country from the 2004 ascension states to join the network. The newly established branch, the Polish Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, or PLERCIM, hopes to serve as a conduit for increased cooperation between Polish researchers and their European colleagues.
