  1. 1. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 1 The Business Case for Collaboration with Academia - Driving Innovation and R&D Lero 19th June 2013 Lero © 2013 ISIN Business Breakfast
  2. 2. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 Why Ireland Needs SW Research • Supply of high quality graduates & postgraduates • Primary & secondary school programmes (Coder Dojo, Scratch, Junior Cert, Leaving Cert) • Undergraduate modules taught by active researchers • Conversion courses • Masters programmes designed with industry input • PhDs and postdocs with cutting edge research experience • Research delivering software productivity • Methodologies & Standards for Software Development • Software performance • Research delivering software quality & reliability • High Integrity Software • Software Security & Privacy • Autonomous & Adaptive Systems 2
  3. 3. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 3 Mission • Lero will enhance the quality and competitiveness of the software industry in Ireland through shared projects, knowledge transfer and education • Lero will deliver world-leading research in software engineering with a special emphasis on Evolving Critical Systems
  4. 4. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 Lero: a National Centre Dublin City UniversityNUI Galway University of Limerick Dundalk IT Trinity College Dublin University College Dublin Lero is an SFI CSET, founded in 2005 and extended in 2011. Awarded over €60M in research funding from multiple sources Over 30 academics, 30+ Research Fellows & Postdocs and c.100 PhD students Output: 250+ journal papers, 25 books and over 500 conference papers. 20+ patents & contributions to 5 published international standards. Worked with over 100 software companies in Ireland & EU Lero © 2013 4
  5. 5. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 Evolving Critical Systems • Evolving – Software is meant to change, both at design/revision time and at run-time – Lero’s research focuses on methods and tools for designing software that can be changed or that can change itself without degradation • Critical – Much of today’s software is mission-, safety- or business-critical – Lero is researching methods and tools to improve the integrity of and confidence levels in critical software • Systems – Expertise in software engineering needs to be coupled with domain knowledge – Lero has existing partnerships & expertise in medical devices, space, future cities and financial services – We will continue to seek domain-related partners for collaborative research 5
  6. 6. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 Key Focus Areas 6 • Adaptive & Autonomous Systems – Systems that learn & respond to their environments • Software Performance – Large complex systems – Multicore embedded & massively parallel systems • Methodologies & Standards – Lean, Agile & Global methods – Open Sourcing & Innovation – Standardised SW Development processes • Security & Privacy – New approaches to security and privacy and the trade-offs between them – Digital forensics • High Integrity Software – Formal methods & safety use cases – Model-based approaches
  7. 7. Lero© 2011Lero © 2013 Some Examples of Lero Research 1. Smarter Cities – In conjunction with Intel Labs Europe, Dublin City Council and IBM 2. Software Product Lines – Use of models to gain efficiencies 3. Adaptive Security and Privacy (Cloud, smart buildings) – In conjunction with United Technologies and IBM 4. Parallelisation of code to optimise use of multicore hardware – In conjunction with Movidius and IBM 5. Architectural Recovery and Preservation – In conjunction with several financial services companies 6. Performance Evaluation in Large Systems – In conjunction with IBM 7.
