Swiss Experiment - a cyberinfrastructure for environmental science (since 2007)

The Swiss Experiment is a collaboration of environmental science and technology research projects across Switzerland which will bring together field experiments and a common modern generic cyberinfrastructure on an unprecedented scale. This collaboration will allow common acquisition technologies to be shared and encourage data sharing and preservation of knowledge through the use of a state-of-the-art database and data processing infrastructure. Through the re-use of data, the SwissEx aims to bridge the traditional scientific domains, broadening scientific knowledge on the interdisciplinary process interactions with the aim of eventually exploiting these links in large scale sensor deployments to improve environmental hazard forecasting and warning.
