RISE ICT engages in applied research, knowledge creation and innovation in both specific application areas and generic platforms. RISE ICT’s role is to offer and provide solutions to existing and future needs based on ICT research. Solutions are developed as new services and products together with partners, customers and users. In many cases, the potential of new services and technologies is demonstrated in direct collaboration with industrial partners or through testbeds and demonstrators, and, in cases where the information is open, in symposiums and direct outreach activities.
The most important
general result of RISE ICT’s activities is that the time to market, from research and development to product launch, is shortened for industry partners. Starting new businesses is another way to create renewal for industry and society based on ICT, and RISE ICT has a successful process for this. For the public sector, this creates a wider range of new services and new technologies with potential applications for improved efficiency.
RISE ICT is part of RISE.
