European Projects (EURO) Overview
The European Projects (EURO) practice delivers insight into European R&D activity related to information and communication technologies (ICT) and examines the impact on the marketplace and industrial adoption. The innovation agenda is the organizing principal of The 451 Group, and a key focus for EURO is providing a bridge between EU research and industrial exploitation.

451 Research and the European Commission CoolEmAll Project
A consortium of universities, energy research organizations and datacenter technology suppliers are participating in the European Commission CoolEmAll project. The seven members of the CoolEmAll consortium are Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center, The Toulouse IT Research Institute, the High Performance Computing Centre at the University of Stuttgart, the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research, Atos, 451 Research and Christmann Informationstechnik.
The consortium's intention is to develop Web-based simulation software that will allow datacenter designers and operators to better match the power and cooling of facilities to the workloads and applications they will ultimately support. The tools can also be used to optimize existing facilities; for example, operators could simulate the power and cooling impact of moving a rack of servers running a specific set of applications, or they could evaluate the impact of free cooling.
