A team of researchers from NOVA LINCS/Department of Computer Science of NOVA School of Science and Technology, in partnership with companies and academic institutions, has received an investment of seven million euros through Horizon Europe, the European Union programme dedicated to funding research projects. The TaRDIS project will develop, accelerate and operate computer systems to promote European technological innovation.
Over the next three years, TaRDIS intends to ensure greater efficiency, speed and guarantee of accuracy in a range of situations involving complex distributed systems, i.e. computing systems divided between several computing points. Among the situations that the project intends to improve, the following stand out:
The TaRDIS team gathers specialists in the areas of programming languages, artificial intelligence, distributed systems, among others, thus englobing all the pillars of knowledge of the computer science area. Besides NOVA School of Science and Technology, the other academic institutions involved are Technical University Denmark, Oxford University, University of NoviSAD, and National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Partnerships are required for the implementation of the solutions developed: EDP New R&D, Actyx AG, GMV Aerospace and Defense, Caixa Mágica Software, Telefónica Research and Martel Innovate are the organisations that have also associated with the project. The objective is moreover to develop a platform that allows engineers with more general training to have technical support for the development of specific programmes.
