Oxford University

The University of Oxford is a globally leading research university regularly in the top three in the world.
Participation within the project will come from two of its leading departments, the Oxford e-Research Centre and the Department of Computer Science.
The Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC) focuses on research and development of new information technology to enable groups of researchers to tackle problems with increasing scale and complexity, facilitating interdisciplinary research and creating appropriate e-Infrastructure for the support of research. It works with academic and industrial collaborators to enable the use and development of innovative computational and information technology in multidisciplinary collaborations. Through the application of distributed computing and information technologies the Centre aims to accelerate research and allow the exploration of new areas in the sciences, humanities and social sciences, and the development of multidisciplinary collaborations both nationally and internationally.
There is a strong track-record of participation in collaborative projects from the Department of Computer Science, and particularly from the team participating in this project. This group has a long-standing interest in the technologies of trusted computing, particularly in their application to commodity computing applications – first, the concept of computational grids, more recently to cloud computing. This has been extended to cover innovative architectures incorporating mobile devices and embedded systems in the internet of things. The group interacts with industrial partners through projects such as those described below, and also through active membership of the Trusted Computing Group’s Academic Liaison Programme.

Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.

Future Events

OLYMPUS H2020 project wants to invite you to a workshop on possible business opportunities around the results of the project. OLYMPUS has defined a quite new and advanced privacy preserving IdM solution based on a distributed model that can be interoperable with existing IdM solutions and that provide user centric vision of the privacy of his data.


SWForum.eu is organising its 2nd MTRL webinar series on 27 October 2021 from 14:00 to 15:00 CEST, understanding the criteria for optimal self-assessment of project outcomes using Market and Technology Readiness Levels (MTRL).
