NuScale and Partner Universities Win Department of Energy Grants for Reactor Simulators

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 18 agosto 2019

NuScale Power today announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded three grants to support the installation of a NuScale reactor plant simulator at each of Oregon State University, Texas A&M University-College Station and the University of Idaho.
When completed, the simulator facilities will be used for research, education, K-12 outreach and public advocacy regarding nuclear power and small modular reactor (SMR) technology. NuScale’s reactor simulator is a virtual nuclear power plant control room that provides U.S. universities and national laboratories with the ability to observe nuclear plant behavior from the control room. These simulators, based on NuScale’s simulator technology and computer models, will include a simulator interface that accepts input from operators in a virtual control room and displays parameters simulating the plant response.
The simulator facilitates research into human factors engineering, human-system interface design, advanced diagnostics, cyber security and plant control room automation. In addition to supporting STEM research and education at universities, NuScale’s simulator can be used to show students and members of the public advanced nuclear technology in a control room setting.Lead collaborators from each of the partner universities include Qiao Wu, Ph.D. (Oregon State University), Yassin Hassan, Ph.D. (Texas A&M University) and Richard Christensen, Ph.D. (University of Idaho).“The installation of these three simulators will provide remarkable opportunities for students, researchers and operators to better understand SMR technology,” said NuScale Innovation Manager Derick Botha, who developed the project proposal on behalf of the company in collaboration with the university leads. “We are thrilled that DOE has given this endeavor such a strong endorsement.” After, deployment at each university, NuScale will provide technical support and further model development to support research.NuScale’s technology is the world’s first and only SMR to undergo design certification review by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The NRC is scheduled to complete its review of NuScale’s design in September 2020.

Ross University School of Medicine and Saint Peter’s University Partner to Increase Physician Diversity

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 17 agosto 2019

Hispanics comprise 18 percent1 of the U.S. population yet are only 5 percent2 of U.S. physicians. In an effort to drive diversity in the physician workforce, Saint Peter’s University and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) announced an agreement to help more Hispanics attend medical school. The agreement, signed today at Saint Peter’s campus, creates an educational pathway program for Saint Peter’s graduates to study medicine at RUSM. Qualified Saint Peter’s students who earn full acceptance into the medical school will receive a scholarship for first semester tuition at the RUSM campus in Barbados.
As an HSI, Saint Peter’s has been consistently recognized for its commitment to serving Latino students. In 2016, Saint Peter’s was awarded the Title III HSI STEM grant for $3.8 million to support SURGE (STEM Undergraduate Retention, Graduation, and Empowerment) that provides opportunities for research. In 2018 Saint Peter’s also received the National Science Foundation’s first-ever Hispanic serving grant for $1.5 million to build STEM internship experiences. Most recently Saint Peter’s was selected as one of 20 nationwide finalists to receive a Seal of Excelencia certification from Excelencia in Education, a nonprofit organization that seeks to accelerate Latino student success in higher education.
RUSM is an International Member of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. RUSM has also announced four similar agreements with minority serving institutions over the past year, including: Charles R. Drew University, Dillard University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and Tuskegee University. As part of its continued commitment to addressing diversity, RUSM’s parent company, Adtalem Global Education (NYSE: ATGE), signed on to the HBCU Partnership Challenge created by the Congressional Bipartisan HBCU Caucus, pledging to invest in creating strategic collaborations with HBCUs and working to increase diversity in key workforce sectors.Having recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, RUSM’s 14,000-plus diverse alumni practice medicine throughout North America and across all specialties, including a high percentage of graduates who enter the in-demand field of primary care. More than a quarter of RUSM students identify as black or Hispanic, with RUSM earning a 96 percent USMLE Step 1 first-time pass rate in 2018. RUSM also achieved a 92 percent residency attainment rate for first-time-eligible 2018-2019 graduates, and of the 647 RUSM medical students who attained residency in March of 2019, 82 were black and 61 were Hispanic.

Affrontare le sfide globali comuni solo attraverso una cooperazione selettiva Il Parlamento ha adottato definitivamente un sistema UE di certificazione per la sicurezza informatica, e espresso la forte preoccupazione per gli interessi cinesi nella tecnologia dell’UE.La risoluzione del Parlamento per valutare lo stato delle relazioni politiche UE-Russia è stata approvata con 402 voti favorevoli, 163 contrari e 89 astensioniI deputati hanno rilevato che, dal 2015, sono emerse nuovi tensioni tra L’UE e la Russia, tra cui l’intervento russo in Siria e l’ingerenza in Paesi come la Libia e la Repubblica Centrafricana. Hanno inoltre sottolineato il sostegno del Cremlino ai partiti anti-europeisti e ai movimenti di estrema destra, ad esempio in Ungheria, e come il Paese continui a interferire nelle elezioni politiche e a violare i diritti umani su proprio territorio.Il Parlamento ribadisce che l’UE dovrebbe essere pronta ad adottare ulteriori sanzioni contro la Russia, in particolare contro individui. Le sanzioni dovrebbero essere proporzionate alle minacce poste dalla Russia. Nel dicembre scorso, il Consiglio ha prorogato le sanzioni economiche fino al 31 luglio 2019.L’UE dovrebbe rivedere il suo attuale accordo di partenariato e cooperazione (APC) con la Russia e limitare la cooperazione ai settori di interesse comune come il cambiamento climatico, la sicurezza energetica, la digitalizzazione, l’intelligenza artificiale e la lotta al terrorismo richiedono un impegno selettivo. Nella risoluzione si afferma che una più stretta collaborazione sarà possibile solo se la Russia attuerà pienamente i cosiddetti accordi di Minsk per porre fine alla guerra nell’Ucraina orientale e inizierà a rispettare il diritto internazionale.

La Commissione propone nuove norme per l’OLAF quale importante partner della Procura europea

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 26 Mag 2018

La Commissione europea ha proposto oggi di modificare il regolamento (UE, Euratom) n. 883/2013 relativo alle indagini svolte dall’Ufficio europeo per la lotta antifrode (OLAF). La modifica intende garantire che l’OLAF disponga dei mezzi necessari per operare in stretta collaborazione con la Procura europea al fine di individuare le frodi perpetrate in tutta l’Unione europea e di svolgere indagini al riguardo. Le modifiche proposte chiariranno inoltre gli strumenti di cui l’OLAF dispone per svolgere indagini amministrative al fine di garantirne l’efficacia. Ciò riguarda in particolare i controlli e le verifiche, l’accesso alle informazioni sui conti bancari e gli strumenti per combattere le frodi nel settore dell’IVA.
La Procura europea avrà il potere di svolgere indagini e di perseguire i reati a danno del bilancio dell’UE, quali la corruzione o le frodi perpetrate con fondi dell’UE, oppure le frodi transfrontaliere nel settore dell’IVA. La proposta odierna di modificare il regolamento n. 883/2013 vuole garantire che l’OLAF diventi un partner prossimo e affidabile della Procura europea e che continui a svolgere indagini amministrative per integrare l’operato di quest’ultima. L’OLAF continuerà così a svolgere un ruolo essenziale nella tutela degli interessi finanziari dell’Unione. La Procura europea e l’OLAF lavoreranno in stretta collaborazione per garantire, attraverso i loro mandati distinti ma complementari, che tutti i mezzi disponibili siano utilizzati per contrastare la frode e proteggere il denaro dei contribuenti.Negli Stati membri che partecipano alla Procura europea, le indagini dell’OLAF saranno tese in primo luogo ad agevolare il recupero amministrativo e a evitare un ulteriore pregiudizio alle finanze dell’UE attraverso misure amministrative. Verrà integrata in tal modo l’impostazione della Procura fondata sul diritto penale, se del caso in stretta consultazione con la Procura stessa. Quando scoprirà eventuali reati, l’OLAF li comunicherà senza indugio alla Procura europea e ne sosterrà le indagini su sua richiesta.
A tal fine, la proposta introduce nel quadro giuridico dell’OLAF le disposizioni necessarie per disciplinare lo scambio di informazioni con la Procura europea, offrire sostegno alle indagini di quest’ultima, garantire la complementarità delle azioni ed evitare la sovrapposizione delle attività d’indagine. La modifica prevede inoltre alcuni chiarimenti, limitati ma importanti, che rafforzeranno l’efficacia delle indagini amministrative dell’OLAF, sulla base della recente valutazione effettuata dalla Commissione. Viene posto l’accento su settori concreti nei quali, attualmente, la mancanza di chiarezza del regolamento in vigore crea ostacoli all’efficacia delle indagini dell’Ufficio.
La proposta odierna rappresenta un’altra tappa dell’impegno della Commissione a rafforzare la tutela degli interessi finanziari dell’Unione, dopo l’adozione di due importanti atti legislativi nel 2017: il regolamento relativo all’attuazione di una cooperazione rafforzata sull’istituzione della Procura europea (EPPO) e la direttiva relativa alla lotta contro la frode che lede gli interessi finanziari dell’Unione mediante il diritto penale.

IoT ed Edge Computing creano opportunità per i partner di canale

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 febbraio 2018

Le Le opportunità date dall’edge computing e dall’ Internet of Things (IoT) per i partner di canale stanno per raggiungere il loro massimo picco grazie alla crescita esponenziale di queste tecnologie. Secondo proiezioni di IDC, la spesa per l’IoT raggiungerà 1,3 trilioni di dollari entro il 2020, e il 43% dei dati dell’Internet of Things sarà processato a livello di edge, alla periferia della rete. Il report dell’analista prevede inoltre che il numero di “cose connesse” raggiungerà i 30 miliardi nel 2020 per salire a 80 miliardi nei successivi 25 anni. Un trend che pone le basi per notevoli opportunità di crescita per il canale.I Channel Partner, in particolare gli integratori di rete, i Managed Service Provider (MSP) e i provider con esperienza in SaaS (Software as a Service) e servizi hosted, si trovano nella posizione ideale per cogliere le opportunità create da queste tecnologie. Infatti, per mantenere i sistemi funzionanti in modo ottimale per i processi decisionali in tempo reale, sia l’IoT che l’edge computing richiedono monitoraggio remoto, implementazione standardizzata e sicurezza fisica – tutti aspetti su cui i nostri partner hanno una vasta e solida esperienza.
L’obiettivo dell’IoT è quello di mettere in comunicazione tra loro tutti i dispositivi o macchinari che possono essere collegati tramite Internet, o tramite comunicazioni private a banda larga, per generare un flusso continuo di informazioni che aiuti le organizzazioni a perfezionare il loro funzionamento e a produrre risultati migliori. Per processare i dati che fluiscono da questi dispositivi sarà necessaria una larghezza di banda e di memorizzazione molto più ampia della capacità attuale.Oltre alla raccolta dei dati, le aziende avranno sempre più bisogno di supporto per accedere e utilizzare tali dati in modo efficiente per prendere decisioni aziendali e avere maggior controllo sui costi. A causa del volume dei dati e della quantità di connessioni di rete necessarie per la loro trasmissione, sarà necessario disporre di un’infrastruttura distribuita o on premise e di adeguate piattaforme di gestione del sistema. L’utilizzo in cloud di questi sistemi ad alta intensità di dati può essere problematico. Se i dati devono viaggiare centinaia o migliaia di miglia fino a un cloud centralizzato, la latenza che si verifica potrebbe influire sulla rapidità con cui viene eseguita l’azione richiesta.L’edge computing soddisfa queste esigenze creando una rete di micro data center che elaborano i dati appena fuori – o all’edge – del punto in cui i dati vengono generati. Ciò elimina i problemi di latenza, aumenta l’affidabilità e consente di prendere decisioni in tempo reale. Il local edge computing fornisce delle stazioni tra infrastrutture cloud, reti aziendali e data center per mantenere le cose in movimento come dovrebbero.

Nuovo partner strategico finanziario

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 13 dicembre 2017

ZurigoZurigo. L’operatore svizzero delle energie rinnovabili Swisspower Renewables AG stringe un accordo con UCEIS II, che si unisce al gruppo in qualità di nuovo partner strategico finanziario. Il nuovo azionista entra nella holding di Zurigo con un investimento di circa 90 milioni di euro, acquisendone il 34% delle quote e diventando di diritto membro del Consiglio di Amministrazione di Swisspower.
Alla holding già composta da 11 municipalità, si unisce così un nuovo socio che con solidità e competenza affiancherà l’Azienda nell’ambizioso progetto di crescita in Italia e in Germania.
Nata sei anni fa come cooperativa di aziende partecipate, Swisspower Renewables AG si è da tempo specializzata in investimenti sull’energia idroelettrica ed eolica dapprima in Germania, e da due anni, anche in Italia. L’importante operazione rafforza ulteriormente la posizione di Swisspower all’interno del mercato delle energie rinnovabili nel nostro Paese.
L’impegno dell’Azienda sul territorio italiano consiste nel lavoro sinergico con le istituzioni locali per il completamento delle costruzioni o, in alcuni casi, nell’implementazione e nella messa a regime degli impianti esistenti, migliorandone così l’efficienza e la produttività.
Dopo aver rilevato 10 centrali in Italia nel 2015, lo scorso anno l’azienda si è distinta nuovamente per la maxi acquisizione di 27 impianti – tra centrali idroelettriche, parchi eolici e impianti foto voltaici – che ha coinvolto diverse regioni tra cui Veneto, Lombardia, Emilia Romagna, Piemonte, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia e Calabria. La capacità produttiva degli impianti fino ad ora acquistati dall’azienda in Germania e in Italia si traduce complessivamente nella produzione di 640GWh all’anno.
“Anche grazie a questa nuova iniezione di capitale Swisspower Renewables AG si conferma uno dei importanti player in Europa nel campo delle energie rinnovabili – dichiara Felix Meier CEO di Swisspower Renewables AG -. Da tempo abbiamo concentrato i nostri sforzi prettamente negli investimenti a lungo termine su Germania e Italia, paesi ricchi di risorse pulite dove possiamo acquistare impianti per generare l’energia necessaria anche da importare in Svizzera, dopo una fine del nucleare”.
