Yale scientists receive a NSF grant for new science network to speed up research
A recently awarded grant may help Yale resolve the technical challenges associated with transferring the large volumes of data its researchers study every day. Earlier this month the National Science Foundation awarded Yale a $496,253 grant to improve the process of transporting large-scale scientific data. The University plans to use these funds to build a dedicated science network which will be 10 times faster than the current system. Daisuke Nagai, a professor of physics and astronomy and one of the authors of the NSF grant application, says the network upgrade will be "the key for finding new trends” by allowing scientists to work more efficiently and reducing the delays due to file transfers.
