New projects - Green In Silico and Videoconferencing
HEEPI have obtained funding from JISC as part of their Greening ICT programme for two projects exploring different aspects of green IT. The two projects are:
Green In Silico - a 12 month project, in collaboration with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) focussing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related ICT activities. Scientific computing is expected to become more signficant as a growing proportion of research and teaching is conducted in silico rather than in vivo or in vitro. The project will raise awareness of the issues amongst STEM decision makers and provide practical support to a range of STEM-related ICT internal providers and users.
Virtually Sustainable - a 12-month project which focuses on videoconferencing-based remote collaboration. As well as developing tools to quantify environmental benefits, the project will run 2-3 demonstration projects with the aim of highlighting areas of major opportunity.
