New NWO grant cooperations with the Informatics Institute

November 7th, 2017

The University of Amsterdam’s Systems and Network Engineering Lab at the Informatics Institute, with assistance of the Leibniz Center for Law, have recently been awarded several new grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The Leibniz Center and SNE already cooperate in the long-running SARNET project (1 PhD student and 1 Post-doc) on Internet Security. The projects will take place within the Informatics Institute, but with personnel involvement of the Leibniz Center for Law.

A round-up of the new NWO grants:

DL4LD or Data Logistics for Logistics Data: The proposed research (2 PhD students, 1 Post-doc) focuses on 1) the design and implementation of capabilities that are required for creating value-rich logistic information services and 2) creation of innovative solutions that allow stakeholders to agree on how data is stored, accessed, shared and transformed in a controllable, enforceable, accountable, auditable and goal-oriented fashion.

Secure Scalable Policy-Enforced Distributed Data Processing:┬áThe project (1 PhD student) combines big data, high performance computing and cryptology in multidisciplinary fundamental and applied research. The project aims to develop integrated secure, end-to-end trusted, scalable and future-proof solutions for the problem of policy-enforced distributed data sharing and processing across multiple logistic domains. This NWO ‘Big Data: Real Time ICT for Logistics’ grant is part of the Commit2Data initiative, a national public-private research-and innovation programme intended to to keep and strengthen the Dutch top 5 position in Big Data.

Distributed FAIR information systems to enable federated learning and reasoning: The project (1 Post-doc) aims to find solutions for constructing FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) data services that allow competing organizations to share & analyse data for a common and agreed goal but not for any other purposes.
