Indiana University [IU] and Technische Universität Dresden [TUD] have announced a friendship and cooperation between the two organizations in order to facilitate “greater levels of collaboration between scientists and medical researchers in Europe and the US.” The impact will fall on joint high performance computing and informatics research. The first project between the groups involves the development of new approaches to biological data set management and trans-Atlantic data transfer.
This partnership formalizes a longstanding friendship and will enable us to be more effective in innovation to support a variety of research fields,” said ZIH Director, Wolfgang Nagel.
IU and PTI are doing work related to data management that holds significant value both within the state of Indiana and internationally,” said Craig Stewart, executive director of PTI. “In ZIH, we have an international partner that complements IU’s strengths and allows us to be even stronger and more ambitious in our research efforts.”
Partners in the agreement include the Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing [ZIH] at TUD and the Pervasive Technology Institute [PTI] and School of Informatics at IU. For more info, read the full release here.
