European Research Projects

SECOQC - Integrated FP6 (IST) (Apr’04 - Oct’08)

Development of a Global Network for Secure Communication based on Quantum Cryptography”
The vision of SECOQC is to provide European citizens, companies and institutions with a tool that allows the ability to face the threats of future interception
technologies, thus creating significant advantages for the European economy.
With SECOQC, the basis was laid for a long-range, high security communication
network that combines the entire novel technology of quantum key distribution with components of classical computer science and cryptography.
The project included 41 partners from Europe and Canada.

E! 2569 PETROSCOPE - EUREKA Project (Jan’04 - Jun’08)

Project start: January 2004, Finished: June 2008
The project included partners from Iceland (lead contractor: PetroModel Iceland Ltd.),
Slovenia, Austria and UK.
Goal was the development of a statistical software package for modeling of the
performance of aggregates and concrete.
The project led to European patent No. 7440.

INTAMAP STREP- FP6 (IST)-Project (Sep’06 - Aug’09)

Project Start: September 2006; End: August 2009
The project included partners from Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Great Britain
and Greece.
The project succeeded in the development of an interoperable framework for real time
automatic mapping of critical environmental variables by extending spatial statistical
methods and employing open, web-based, data exchange and visualisation tools.

EPT300 - EU-ENIAC- Project (Apr’12 - Sep’15)

Project start: April 2012, End date: September 2015
The project includes industrial partners (Infineon, LAM Research, Philipps, AMS,
SILTRONICS, …) and university research partners (TU Dresden, TU Eindhoven, AAU
Klagenfurt) from Germany, Austria, Italy and The Netherlands.
Goal was the development and implementation of technologies to achieve full-scale
production of power devices on 300 mm wafers. Our part of the project focused on
statistical modelling of early failure mechanisms and the design of advanced burn-in
