TIVIT Interactive: A Retrospect on the Future Internet Program TIVIT Interactive: A Retrospect on the Future Internet Program Presentation Transcript

  • A restrospect on the Future Internet program Jukka Manner, Aalto University ICT SHOK on Future Internet 2.5.2012
  • DisclaimerThis presentation is based on views and opinionsfrom the academic coordinator and academicpartners in an ICT SHOK program.Companies and other programs will havedifferent opinions.
  • Three parts1. Background and results2. A retrospect on the Future Internet program3. Some thoughts on SHOKs
  • Fact sheet• Timeline 1.4.2008-30.4.2012: 4 years• Total budget: 27M€ (Tekes 60%)• Work effort done: 230 PY
  • Topics1. Routing and data transport – Fixed and mobile networks, multi-path, multi-radio – Software performance (switch, router) – Transport algorithms (wireless focus) – Challenging environments (no infrastructure)2. Energy-efficiency – Smart phones, Bluetooth, sensors3. Information-driven networks – Evolution of peer-to-peer4. Network security – Botnets, unwanted traffic, trust, anomaly detection
  • Research results• Total number of publications: 300+ – Conferences, journals: 200 – Standards contributions: 50 – University theses: 50• Open source software packages: 12
  • PhD-level results• During the project: – 14 PhD theses • Aalto (10), TUT (2), UH (2)• After the project: – 11 Aalto and one UH PhD theses got the topic and seed funding from FI
  • Three parts1. Background and results2. A retrospect on the Future Internet program3. Some thoughts on SHOKs
  • The good• Contributions to science and standards – Great number of top publications, SDOs – Many high-quality contributions to R&D• Good spirit• Good level of funding in general• Very few internal fights• Freedom in pursuing the agreed goals• Not overly bureaucratic
  • The bad• Much work done in solo – Could have done much better joint work• Research topics decided by companies – Limits research work to companies’ current focus• “Game” in proposing academic work – Search and motivate a company sponsor – The more you propose, the more you get after cuts – Either 100-250% increases, or double PY cost• Many topics only studied for a short time – Unpredictable funding and collaboration• Problems with publication approval process• WP leadership mostly non-existing – Exception: Hannu Flinck (NSN), best WP leader by far
  • Three parts1. Background and results2. A retrospect on the Future Internet program3. Some thoughts on SHOKs
  • The goal of SHOKs“Research carried out by the SHOKs is strategic,pre-commercial, and as a rule not associatedwith short-term market goals. As the time spanof research usually is 5 - 10 years at minimum,competitors may take part in the sameprogrammes.”
  • In good and bad• FI has followed this principle quite well – Little product-oriented work from researchers themselves• In some programs, this has not materialized – Short-term topics, tight control over the work, bureaucracy, strict reporting (worse than EU?) – Partners that can be changed on the fly • PhD-level high quality results take 4 years – Little long-term planning and resources• Companies use SHOK funding for their own product- oriented short-term goals – Does not fulfill long-term 5-10 year strategic goals• Funding is based on company work that can change without prior notice• FI was abandoned ahead of schedule partly due to too scientific research
  • Some wishes for SHOKs• Long-term planning and commitment – 2-3 years absolute minimum• Funding for bottom-up ideas – 100% currently decided by companies• Low overhead in management• SHOKs are not a substitute for company product development support• Don’t penalize universities when companies fail
