Engaging with Business ‚Äď Long-term partnerships

Long-term strategic partnerships enable leading academic and industrial research groups to undertake both fundamental and application-inspired research.

The ARM-ECS Research Center works on advanced design methods, architectures and their practical validation in single-core and multi-core processor systems. The benefits from having multiple projects, each with one or more industrial mentors from ARM, academics from ECS and PhD students based at ARM and at ECS is having enough capacity to produce technology demonstrators of advances in processors that have been fabricated and packaged using standard CMOS fabrication facilities.

Our relationship with BAe Systems has been ongoing for many years covering a wide range of activity, the most significant in Distributed Data and Information Systems. The multi-million pound ALADDIN project investigated some of the most complex and challenging problems faced by society, including terrorist attacks and environmental disasters; for example - how can we restore and maintain decentralized data and information systems in emergency situations? BAE Systems Detica have a long tradition of supporting our undergaduate project work and extra curricula activities.

Among the companies with which ECS currently has long-term partnerships are: Philips, IBM, Qinetiq, National Grid and Nokia.
