  1. 1. Netherlands Institute for Research on ICT
  2. 2. NIRICT … to facilitate Dutch ICT scientific excellence and impact NIRICT bundles ICT research of the three technical universities in NL (79 chairs, 1200 scientists) in one virtual institute Eindhoven Twente Delft
  3. 3. Why join forces? <ul><li>to create critical mass around a number of strategic areas </li></ul><ul><li>to have impact by focusing on a limited number of ICT topics and ICT applications </li></ul><ul><li>to be preferred partner in ICT research and innovation </li></ul><ul><li>to influence the shape of the national and EU ICT research and innovation agenda </li></ul>
  4. 4. NIRICT research agenda Enterprise Info Syst. 3TU.CeDICT Dependable ICT Systems 2. Long Term Research Challenges Multimedia Ambient Intelligence Security Broadband Computer Networks 1. S trategic R esearch A genda’s Smart Environment Labs LaQuSo Research & Innovation Labs Design Labs 3. Innovation Agenda
  5. 5. SRA-1: Broadband Communication Systems Technology for optical-electronical broadband connections and antenna technology and spectrum management for wireless communication
  6. 6. SRA-2: Computer Networks Research on network technology that will provide seamless access to the underlaying broadband infrastructure and high level communication services to the user GPRS UMTS WiFi … LAN W-LAN GPRS
  7. 7. SRA-3: Ambient Intelligence Research on distributed sensor networks that will provide intelligence in products and in living and working environments
  8. 8. SRA-4: Security Research on mechanisms to make computer systems and the internet more secure and trustworthy view, not print
  9. 9. SRA-5: Multimedia and Interaction Research on natural interaction with intelligent systems and research on search and presentation techniques for multimedia data
  10. 10. SRA-6: Enterprise Information Systems Research on design methodologies for next generation information systems, in particular architectural modeling for intra-organizational business processes
  11. 11. ICT Applications <ul><li>ICT for Healthcare </li></ul><ul><li>ICT for Safety </li></ul><ul><li>ICT for Mobility </li></ul><ul><li>ICT for Logistics </li></ul><ul><li>ICT at Home </li></ul>
  12. 12. ICT Applications Example: Any time any place Health information Health broker & service provider Public Operator Hospital UMTS Doctor BAN
  13. 13. Centered on the user and personalized
  14. 14. Centre for Dependable ICT Systems <ul><li>To develop a design methodology and application toolkits that bring modeling, analysis, synthesis and verification for dependable large-scale ICT-systems within reach of every system engineer </li></ul><ul><li>18 chairs (incl. 6 new 3TU.CeDICT chairs) </li></ul>
  15. 15. Innovation Agenda <ul><li>LaQuSo : ‘The’ expertise and research centre for verification and validation of software systems </li></ul><ul><li>Design Lab : Provide a design platform to allow (small) companies to make a design for heterogeneous systems (sensors, intelligent signal processing components, low power radio) </li></ul><ul><li>Smart Environments Lab : T echniques for ambient intelligence and multi-modal interaction can only be assessed in a realistic environment </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Your partner in research and innovation with clear focus and mass t o do things together that you cannot do alone </li></ul>Added Value for You <ul><li>Jointly defining research agenda’s and to enlarge the ICT research community </li></ul><ul><li>One single contact point, p ortal function for scientific developments </li></ul><ul><li>Clear financial and IPR agreements </li></ul><ul><li>Source for qualified personnel </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated solutions (not single discipline) </li></ul>
  17. 17. Added Value for You NIRICT your partner in innovation
