EUINCOOP - Background Information

EU-INdia Fostering COOPeration in Computing Systems (EUINCOOP) is Coordination and Support Action (CSA) project which is running for 24 months from 1st October 2011 to 31st October 2013 funded by European Commission under Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

The main aim of EUINCOOP project is to foster collaboration and cooperation in the computing technologies field between both Indian and European research organizations and industry to achieve better understanding and future cooperation.

The project proposes to bring together researchers and stakeholders from EU and India under a widespread forum for analyzing research agendas in computing system.

EUINCOOP project addresses the following issues:

  • Parallel and Concurrent Computing
  • Heterogeneous Computing Systems
  • Embedded System Applications
  • Multicore Systems-on–Chip
  • Virtualization
  • Constraints and Performance Ceiling Factors

EUINCOOP will work on mapping out the research priorities and agendas in the above areas of computing systems in Europe and India, and will lay out the ground for common priorities.

The EUINCOOP project objective is to stimulate cooperation in computing technologies between Europe and India, in order to support Europe's leading position in computing system, while ensuring mutual benefits for both Europe and India.

Mission & Focus Goals

Mission: Enabling an Intelligent platform- which helps to stimulate collaboration and cooperation in the computing technologies field between Europe and India, to support Europe’s leading position in computing system while ensuring mutual benefits for both Europe and India.

Focus and Goal: EUINCOOP will take series of steps to achieve this goal

  • A forum for the exchange of best practices, ideas and issues as well as getting regional information for the collaborative research agenda development
  • Access to and visibility of requirements and perspectives
  • Opportunities to adjust and adapt to meet the international cooperation
  • A channel for articulating the musts, needs and wants of the community: the positives and negatives - what is required and what is to be avoided, what are the priorities
  • An interpretation or mapping into functional and technical requirements
  • A channel for feeding back to the stakeholder community, and debating the impacts – benefits and penalties, gains and costs, simplification and complications
  • Face to face meetings with the experts to discuss ideas and capitalize on knowledge and form strategies.
