University of Amsterdam: SLICES added to ESFRI 2021 Roadmap

The Complex Cyber Infrastructure (ICC) research group of IvI and especially Yuri Demchenko, Wouter Los and Cees de Laat are very pleased that the proposal they worked on with partners from 14 different European countries, has been accepted.

‘This is excellent news and helps to shape the European vision of an experimental digital data infrastructure according to European standards and values’, says Cees de Laat, group leader ICC.

SLICES stands for Large-scale Infrastructure for Computing/Communication Experimental Studies and it’s ambition is to become an impactful research Infrastructure in Digital Sciences, including concerns regarding energy consumption and the implementation of the Green Deal.
SLICES is a flexible platform designed to support large-scale, experimental research focused on networking protocols, radio technologies, services, data collection, parallel and distributed computing and in particular cloud and edge-based computing architectures and services.

ESFRI announced last week, the 11 new Research Infrastructures to be included in its Roadmap 2021. €4.1 billion will be invested in excellent science contributing to address European challenges.
