DAUIN has a long experience in EC-funded and national research projects, as well as projects funded by private companies, in the fields covered by the 5Growth project. Among EU-funded projects in this field, DAUIN recently participated in H2020 ASTRID, FP7 UNIFY, EIT SDN@EDGE, and EIT CC4BA, and coordinated FP7 SECURED. DAUIN will participate in 5Growth through its Netgroup (Computer Networks Research group) which is active in research fields that are strategic for 5Growth, such as Network Functions Virtualization, Service Orchestration, and Formal Methods for service verification.
DET has a long experience in European and national projects, and an internationally recognized expertise in the fields covered by the 5Growth project. Among the European projects, it coordinated the NoEs, e-Photon/ONe and e-Photon/ONe+ and TREND; participated in BONE, Euro-NF, Euro-NGI and Euro-FGI, NewCom, NewCom++ and NewCom#, FIGARO, ECONET, STRONGEST, FEDERICA, STAMINA and NOBEL2. It was active in the Cost Actions: 257, 273, IC0703. Finally, DET coordinated the FP7 STREP NAPA-WiNe, the IP project mPlane and the QNRF project GAD.
