University of Groningen – Campus Fryslân (RUG/CF) (joined 4/2017)
RUG/CF is a unique Faculty dedicated to the multidisciplinary study of scientific questions connected with social and economic themes relevant to the province. The core philosophy of the Faculty involves connecting regional themes with interdisciplinary global issues. In practice, the Faculty will teach students to apply theoretical knowledge of societal issues playing out at a global level to real-world regional cases.
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam – Comptational Intelligence Group (VU) (joined 11/2017)
Ever since it was founded in 1880, VU Amsterdam has beenknown for its distinctive approach to knowledge. VU is an open organization, strongly linked to people and society. What matters is not just the acquisition of a greater depth of knowledge, but also a wider one. We ask and expect our students, researchers, PhD candidates and employees to look further – to look further than their own interests and their own field, and further than what is familiar and further than the here and now.
University of Trento (UNITN) (joined 2/2018)
UNITN is ranked among the best Italian Universities. This is due to the University’s ability to finance itself, its success in scientific research, its ability to look towards Europe and the world, and to the satisfaction of the students. The Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) was established in January 2002. Since then, it has grown to more than 40 faculty members and is hosted 200 full-time Ph.D. students and 100 research staff, soon becoming recognized as the top computer science department in Italy. Over time, DISI has consolidated as an international and multi-cultural working environment, hosting a EU Marie Curie Chair in Networking and Security, a EU Erasmus Mundus Masters in Informatics (jointly with the Universities of RWTH Aachen and Edinburgh) and holding a formalized long-term collaboration with Indian Universities and Research Centers.
INnovation Center for Advanced Sensors and Sensor Systems (INCAS3) (left 12/2016)
INCAS3 was a private, non-profit research institute that performs fundamental and applied research in the fields of sensing and monitoring. It went bankrupt in 2016.
