1 Lessons learned from FP7 proposals and projects SMI2G 2014 Andrea Nowak Deputy Head of Department Safety&Security AIT - Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH 23 January 2014, Brussels V

2 Austrian Industry  ~1000 Employees  Budget: 120 Mio €  Business Model: 40:30:30 Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology 50,46% Federation of Austrian Industries 49,54% 2

3 AIT/DSS – successful positioning within European and National Security Research Community EU FP7 Security Research Program AIT successful cooperative R&D projects: 12 Mio Euro 3

4 SoCol „ Online Social collaboration social media processes and tools “ 4 Do the right things – do the things right! PLP „ Project Lifecycle Process “ Gate 0 Gate 1 Gate 2 Gate 3 creativity - transparency - focus - cooperation leading edge skill & asset management highest transparency sustainable portfolio management 2009 – 2010 Cultural Change Program (1) Innovation Management to foster innovation, overcome „silos“ and enabling high quality delivery

5 2009 – 2010 Cultural Change Program (2) Stage Gate - Process 5 creativity - transparency - focus - cooperation „ research is predictable and assessable by promoting creativity and taking risk „

6 Strategy Development (1) Buttom-up – creativity and innovation power of the department Top-down - commitment and goal orientation Top-Down:  Global organization- und strategic orientations of the departments  Five Department and there domains  Defined commitments and goals  Financial 40:30:30  Scientific: Numbers of publications, patents  Resources: Growth rate  Carrier model for our employers  External Evaluation process every year Buttom-up:  Development of the department Strategy  this was our freedom  Enormous communication and discussion effort  Making ALL employees aware of the strategy  Focus activities on the defined Research Areas and Research Fields  Empowerment of our staff

7 From key scientific competences to focused applied research Focus in 3 Research Areas Strategy Development (2) Intelligent Vision Systems (IVS) Highly Reliable SW and Systems (HRS) Future Networks and Services (FNS) Highest System Reliability Assessment and Testing of Autonomous and Safety-Critical Systems Large Scale Networked Systems Secure Information Access in Distributed Systems Next-Gen. Content Management Systems Advanced Applications in Sensor Networks Secure Information Access in Distributed Systems Next-Gen. Content Management Systems Advanced Applications in Sensor Networks Surveillance & Protection Multi-Camera Vision High Speed Imaging Multi-Camera Vision High Speed Imaging Source: digitalbevaring.dk

8 Strategy Development (3)  Scientific and Engineering skill  Diversity in qualification “ From strategy to focus = Building critical mass” Physicist 200+ Experts (FTE) 1/3 Scientists 2/3 Engineers 36% PhD  2/3 of new employees with international education Computer Scientist Electro Technical Engineers Medical Computer Scientist Mathematician

9 DSS Applied R&D Methodology = our market USP Technology/Science – basic competence and solution portfolio Cooperation in the research community Strategic aliances/cooperation with users/stakeholders Solutions for larger systems Industry impact mid and long-term cooperation with industry Industry impact mid and long-term cooperation with industry Strategic orientation – top down from our owner Strategy Development (4) Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Strategy 2017

10 Research & Business Approach Applied Research - AIT Security Eco-system

11 “Door opener” for our international cooperation's National research programs  KIRAS – national security research program  ICT of the Future  Take off  …. International Networks: European research community  EUROTECH  IMG-S  PSCE  ARTEMIS  COST  Doman specific networks  TeleTrust  FRONTEX  Enisa

12 Automated Border Control  Programme Roadmap  Strategy Feasibility study ASAP A harmonized, modular reference system for all European automated border crossing points 1st Austrian IP in Security Call 15 Mio Euro FastPass National proof of concept project FBC MobilePass (in negotiation) A secure, modular and distributed mobile border control solution for European land border crossing points Example (1)

13 Cyber Defense  Programme Roadmap  Strategy CIIS Cyber Incident Information Sharing European Control System Security Incident Analysis Network ECOSSIAN Cyber Attack Information System for Austria National Cyber Defense Prevention, protection and reaction to cyberattacks to critical infrastructures EP3R working group – European Public Private Partnership for Resilience Example (2)

14 Overview of successful projects - Call 6 (1) 14 TopicCoordinatorAkronym SEC Protection of smart energy grids against cyber attacksAITSPARKS SEC Pan European detection and management of incidents/attacks on critical infrastructures in sectors other than the ICT sectorTechniconECOSSIAN SEC Protection systems for utility networksAITHyRiM ICT-Security TopicCoordinatorAkronym SEC A research agenda for security issues on land transport FhGIMLCARONTE SEC Mobile equipment at the land border crossing points AITMobilePass Object and Personel Security ICT-Security

16 Lessens Learned (1) Comments of my colleagues Markus:  Timely and structure approach to complete the proposal  Amicably relations within a strong consortium  Support and knowledge of colleagues within AIT and their enthusiasm  Support of the AIT management to allow for a maximum of flexibility in working on creative scientific contributions Florian:  Idea of ECOSSIAN is right on time to support these initiatives.  The consortium consists of an optimal mix of academics/research, industrial partners and national bodies.  All work package leaders have plenty of experience in EU projects, know how to approach goals, and are professional and reliable partners. This helped a lot in the proposal preparation phase

17 Lessens Learned (2) Comments of my colleagues Paul:  A strong consortium, which was appreciated by the reviewers.  The users group, that we prepared was a strong point that helped  Internally, we were well prepared from a content perspective  The proposers day turned out to be surprisingly useful, i.e., via discussions with the PO, to read between the lines of the proposal text, …  As an institution, I think we were well-placed to coordinate the proposal from a content perspective, i.e., with the three departments taking part  I think we built on previous successes, e.g., with SECCRIT in last Security call

18 Summary of Lesson Learned  Idea Generation  Finding the best consortium  Structured proposal work  Keep the time lines  Communication (intern and extern)  ……  Idea Generation  Finding the best consortium  Structured proposal work  Keep the time lines  Communication (intern and extern)  ……  Strategy  Trust  Defined Risk  Management & Process Support  Efficient Tool Support  ……  Strategy  Trust  Defined Risk  Management & Process Support  Efficient Tool Support  ……
