​​GÉANT at ICT 2015: Open Science for research and education


15 October 2015 | Cambridge, UK

On 20-22 October, GÉANT will exhibit at ICT2015 in Lisbon, an event attended by 4500 ICT enthusiasts from research, politics, industry and academia. The high profile event showcases best-in-class results from European ICT Research & Innovation and features advanced products from companies that have grown and benefited from European funding.


As a flagship e-infrastructure and key to achieving the European Research Area, the GÉANT network plays an important role in Europe’s economic growth and competitiveness.  GÉANT will be exhibiting in the EC Village, one of six areas under the title of Open Science - and will host two ICT for Health projects:


Supporting ICT for Health

GÉANT and two ICT for Health projects, MD-PAEDIGREE and CARDIOPROOF, will demonstrate revolutionary applications to support clinical diagnostic and decision making at the point of care. The projects will show how big data can be accessed for diagnosis, care planning, and follow-up of paediatric diseases—allowing personalisation of treatments and simulation of outcomes.

Data Sonification for Cancer Research

Could data sonification deliver while-you-wait cancer diagnosis? Converting human tissue spectroscopy data into sounds could enable GPs to make instant, non-invasive cancer diagnoses during a routine check-up.


A recent study between GÉANT, Anglia Ruskin University, Birmingham City University and the University of Central Lancashire shows how data sonification can improve standard techniques currently used in spectroscopy stem cell analysis.


At ICT2015 delegates can listen to these sounds and Domenico Vicinanza will explain what they mean.


What is Data Sonification?Domenico Vicinanza explains in this 2-minute video.
