As EUbusiness said, the two areas are beneficiaries of the European Union's Future Emerging Technology (FET) Flagship programme, French researchers associated with the projects said.

The money, amounting to a billion euros for each initiative, will be allocated over 10 years, France's National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) said.

Graphene, discovered less than a decade ago, is a sheet of carbon that is one atom thick.

It is touted as having huge potential, with superior conductivity, mechanical strength and optical purity than other materials.

The Human Brain Project, meanwhile, seeks to simulate the cells, chemistry and connectivity of the brain in a supercomputer, the goal being to better comprehend the brain's functions and development.

The hope is to find new treatments for brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and enhance "artificial intelligence" computing.

Major Cloud Service Providers Slash Prices; Threaten Smaller Players’ Existence: IDC Warns

19/04/2014 13:40 (5 Day 08:08 minutes ago)

The FINANCIAL -- In the last week of March, major Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) in Asia dropped their prices for core services dramatically and IDC believes that this will make it very difficult for smaller CSPs to remain in business if they continue to rely on provision of basic, undifferentiated services, according to International Data Corporation (IDC).
