2 Ericsson-ACCESS Collaborative Projects Background: Ericsson and ACCESS would like to strengthen and broadening the research collaborations. Call for proposals: ACCESS Faculty submit one page project proposal. Proposal should indicate -Objective -Ericsson Research collaborator (or stakeholder) -Added value and potential co-funding Evaluation: Evaluation and decision by ACCESS Industrial Advisory Board chaired by Mikael Höök, Ericsson Research. Priority is given to jointly developed proposals. Time plan: -Call open: Feb 11 -Submission deadline: May 13 -IAB decision: Jun Project start: Jul 2013 Funding: Projects are typically supported by 500 KSEK over one year. But also smaller or longer projects are feasible. Total annual budget is currently KSEK. Contacts: Mikael Höök is willing to suggest potential Ericsson

3 High-risk Seed Projects Background: Review 2012 suggested that ACCESS should encourage more high-risk research Call for ideas: ACCESS Faculty submit project idea, motivate why high risk and high payoff, not more than 500 words Evaluation: Pre-selection by EC, decision by Board Time plan: -Submission deadline: Mar 13 -Discussion and EC proposal: May 6 -Board decision: May 27 -Project start: Jul 2013 Funding: 500 KSEK per year and project over two years with half-time evaluation, nominally 1 project supported Conflict of interest: EC or Board members cannot apply

4 Industry Seed Projects Background: Important with more and new interactions with strategic industry Call for ideas: ACCESS Faculty submit project idea, motivate why new and why important for ACCESS, not more than 500 words Evaluation: pre-selection by EC, decision by Director Time plan: -Submission deadline: Aug 31 -Discussion and EC proposal: Sep -Director decision: Sep -Project start: Oct Funding: 100 KSEK per year and project over two years with half-time evaluation (nominally 1 project supported)

5 ACCESS Industry Internship Program ACCESS PhD students have chosen options: 1.You take a leave from KTH for 2-3 months to work at Ericsson or ABB on a project in the area of ACCESS, but not necessary directly related to your thesis work. 2.You keep your KTH salary but relocate to Ericsson or ABB for 2- 3 months to work on a joint co-sponsored project more directly related to your current research direction. PhD student reponses: 14 answers. Most of them prefer option 1 and suggest summer time or just after the summer. One already had a discussion with Ericsson about option 2. Next steps

6 ACCESS Undergrad Summer Program Background: Many of the labs in ACCESS engage talented undergraduate and master students in their research during the summers. This coming summer we plan to organize some joint events for all these students under an ACCESS umbrella. Planned events 1.ACCESS Undergraduate Summer Programme kick-off: June 10th at in lecture room Q2. Introduce ACCESS and welcome lunch. 2.Joint social activity: Details TBD. The event will be organized around July 1. 3.Final workshop: August 30th, details TBD. Here the students will present the outcomes of their projects. ACCESS is responsible for the common costs of these events, but not for student salaries etc. USP Lead: Henrik Sandberg

7 Some Upcoming Activities ACCESS Seminars -Mar 6, Bengt Amnehagen, Ericsson, legacy SW challenges Faculty lunch: May 22 -Magnus Buhrgard and Martin Svensson, Ericsson -Challenge group reports (cont’d) ACCESS PhD Student Innovation Workshop, May 2013 SRA ICT TNG workshop, Nov 2013
