ICGEB RECEIVES A NEW GRANT

The International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) has received a grant exceeding US $6 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for the implementation of a project to assist the regulation of agricultural biotechnology products in sub-Saharan Africa. The project will be carried out by the Centre’s Biosafety Unit, by personnel based in its Trieste (Italy) and Cape Town (South Africa) components, and will focus on the development of effective safety and regulatory systems for the regulation of GMOs: a very relevant topic, not only for sub-Saharan Africa countries. Thanks to the funds provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – says Mr. Decio Ripandelli, Director of ICGEB’s External Relations and Head of the Biosafety Unit – more than 20 fellowships will be offered to attend a two-year Master programme tailored for the project by a prestigious international university [...]

SECOND LARGEST COMPUTING CENTRE IN ITALY LAUNCHED IN TRIESTE

With its operational capacity of 130 TeraFlop (one TeraFlop is equal to a million million operations per second) and an archiving capacity of about 200 TeraBytes, for a total of 32 million computing hours a year, the new High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster (a supercomputer for scientific research), installed at ICTP will be the second most powerful computing centre in Italy-  It will be housed at the old SISSA building in Via Beirut No. 2-4 in Trieste. Initially, the cluster will be available for use by the research groups of SISSA and ICTP, and later, for use by third parties after agreements are in place. To mark the official launch of the HPC, the Director of ICTP Fernando Quevedo and the Director of SISSA Guido Martinelli signed a joint agreement, which is valid for nine years. A technical and scientific committee composed of four members appointed by SISSA, four members appointed by ICTP and a chairperson will see to the implementation of the plan. [...]

EYES TO THE NORTH: DEVELOPING PARTNERSHIPS WITH JAPAN

Since 1983 TWAS has been highly effective in supporting South-South science collaborations and programmes and has developed a network that covers a large part of the science community in the developing world.  TWAS is now turning to the North for additional collaboration and support, recognizing that developing countries' needs are global needs. Likewise, many countries in the North, and Japan in particular, have begun to recognize that the involvement of scientists from the developing world is essential for addressing many of the critical issues that the world now faces - including those relating to energy and food insecurity, the spread of infectious diseases, the loss of biodiversity, desertification and dwindling supplies of safe drinking water.
