EUropean Network on Intelligent Technologies for Smart Adaptive Systems

Objective

Intelligent technologies, including neural networks, fuzzy systems, machine learning and evolutionary computing, have led to many successful industrial applications but most solutions lack adaptivity and have to be redesigned when the setting or environmental parameters change significantly. Also, although these technologies have reached a mature stage and each one separately penetrates more and more application fields, they show very little interaction with each other. EUNITE, will be an open Network of Excellence towards a twofold goal:
a) to create critical research mass in the area of Intelligent Technologies for better exploiting the potential of Intelligent Hybrid Systems; and;
b) to foster synergies between the technologies that contribute towards building Smart Adaptive Systems, for implementation in industry and other economy sectors.

OBJECTIVES
EUNITE aims to encourage the development of technologies for intelligent systems and to stimulate the use of Smart Adaptive Systems in industry by:
- Promoting the dialogue between the separate research communities working on Intelligent Technologies;
- Shorten the lead time from scientific innovation to actual applications in industry or economy via technology transfer actions;
- Encourage new enterprises coming into this area with success stories and best practice information;
- Strengthen European training activities and collaboration.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The network will be comprised by three groups aiming to interconnect theory and application in an effective scheme:
A) The Research Theory & Development (RTD) group will deal with theoretical aspects of the integration of Intelligents Technologies for Smart Adaptive Systems. The RTD group will organise conferences-symposia and workshops related to Intelligent Technologies and Smart Adaptive Systems, will disseminate scientific excellence via publications and will stimulate scientific co-authoring. Its members are expected also to provide executive summaries on these subjects, to work on joint case studies and seek guidelines for the Best Methodology on applying Smart Adaptive Systems.
B) The Industrial Business Application (IBA) group focusing on 5 sectors of economy: Industry; Transportation; Telecommunication & Multimedia; Medicine & Healthcare; Finance, Trade & Services. The IBA group will also organise conferences, Symposia and workshops and try to increase awaraness of applied Smart Adaptive Systems and their benefits in its areas. Special actions are foreseen to encourage the use of these technologies and systems in SMEs and to help young researchers to get connected with the market.
C) The Technology Transfer and Education (TTE) group that will provide the necessary information flow and education in order to promote the area and enlarge the domain of potential users. The TTE group is subdivided in two groups. The Technology Transfer (TT) group will develop strategies and actions for missing links between he research community and industry by issuing patent guidelines and related services, organising benchmarking and competitions and reporting feasibility/case studies. The Training and Education group will set up a server with a Learning Centre which in addition to educational activities will develop didactic methods and a dictionary/definition list.

All three groups are in close collaboration and will produce under the supervision of the Steer ing Committee a comprehensive Roadmap on Hybrid Intelligent and Smart Adaptive Systems, stating the research challenges, the technology penetration and education of these areas. Apart from the overall co-ordination, assessment of the network and Roadmap activity supervision, a Steering Committee will seek collaborations with other networks and research communities developing also relations with associated and third countries. The Service Centre of EUNITE will support all aforementioned activities and among others will develop and administrate a dedicated WWW space and disseminate information through a Newsletter and a CD-ROM.
