The Open Group quest for parallelism

Yet another round of financing for academic research in parallelism, this time in Europe. EE Times reports:

Supported by the European Commission, the Java Environment for Parallel
Real-time Development (JEOPARD) project is investing over €3.3 million
(about $ 4.9 million) an advanced framework
for real-time Java running on multicore and parallel systems.

Led by The Open Group (Reading, England), the JEOPARD consortium
includes four universities and research institutes: University of York
(England), Vienna University of Technology (Austria), FZI (Research
Center for Information Technologies at the University of Karlsruhe,
Germany) and the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (Romania); three
industrial manufacturers: EADS NV (Schiphol-Rijk, Netherlands),
RadioLabs (Rome, Italy) and SkySoft (Lisbon, Portugal); and two
embedded systems technology suppliers: Aicas (Karlsruhe, Germany) and
Sysgo (Klein-Winternheim, Germany).
