Bring together Luxembourg and Eastern countries in IT research

For many years, the University of Luxembourg developed key competences in the domain of Security, reliability and trust. On the basis of these competences, links have been established with other universities of European eastern countries (Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Russia and Belarus).

The University of Luxembourg has recently signed agreements on cooperation with some of these prestigious eastern scientific institutions. The goal of these agreements is focused on student exchange, common supervision of PhD students and scientific collaboration between the researchers leading to joint educational and research programmes.

The Eastern Europe-Luxembourg Workshop on Cloud Computing, Communications, Security and Services (CLOUDCOMS) is the next step to enhance the cooperation between Luxembourg and eastern academic societies working in telecommunication, security and innovative IT services. It aims at grouping high profile research experts working in these fields, leading to creation of a platform for research collaboration with international partners.

The CLOUDCOMS workshop is supported by Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR).

The following universities are involved in this initiative:

  • Poland
    • Warsaw University of Technology
    • Poznan University of Technology, Institute of Computer Science
    • Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Computer Science
    • Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw
    • Cracow University of Technology, Institute of Computer Science
  • Czech Republic
    • Charles University in Prague, School of Mathematics
