Service Examples

As part of its Digital Lëtzebuerg strategy, Luxembourg aims to position itself as a country with a smart regulatory landscape. The aim is to leverage such a smart regulatory landscape as an attractive asset for Luxembourg companies developing innovative business, while ensuring their products and services are fair, reliable and consumer-friendly.  In order to cope with these challenges, our research has led to the development of regulatory software technologies that are mutualised between the regulators and the controlled entities. The resulting regulatory technology aids regulated entities in the reduction of their reporting costs by reducing the effort to interpret the regulations and its associated reported information. For the regulator, as the entities are reporting according to the same information model, this guarantees a better analysis from the report’s content and a global aggregation of the results.
These technologies are now progressively deployed together with national regulators (Institut Luxembourgeois de Régulation, Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier and Commission National de la Protection des Données) in different sectorial domains (telecommunication, financial service providers, health, etc.). These on-going researches are also capitalising on top of previous R&D associated to the compliance reporting associated with standards and best practices (TIPA)

Together with LIST, Goodyear engineers will focus on making tires more environmentally friendly—in terms of materials, performance and the manufacturing process. This joint R&D initiative offers opportunities to create a better future by:
•     Advancing data science that allows Goodyear to improve its processes to deliver tires of the highest quality and shorten product development cycles to better anticipate the evolving needs of OEM partners and end-consumers.
•     Developing innovative lightweight materials (by software design) to lower the rolling resistance of tires with a positive impact on the environment and the consumer through lower emissions and greater fuel efficiency.  
•     Data Science for Virtual Tire and Business Analytics, with two subdomains:  perform systematic multi performance optimization using new tire; capitalizing on available business data to push Business Model innovation

Measuring the performance of eduction systems rely on   the reliable measurement of actable competencies.  In a context where traditional paper-based instruments become more and more unadapted to the skills that needs to be evaluated, Computer-Based Assessment represents nowadays one of the cornerstone of the future Human Capital development.  In close collaboration with the University of Luxembourg (psychology and educational measurement), we have developed an advanced Computer-Based Assessment Open-Source platform called TAO. This platform aims at providing value added artifacts to various types of stakeholders, they range trom the policy-making perspective, OECD (Pisa, Piaac) to other international institutions. Technological partnerships have bee, also established with world-leaders in the assessment fields such as Educational Testing Services (ETS), in the US, and Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER), Australia.  Today, TAO has been transferred to the spin-off OAT created in 2013 with 28 collaborators today

H2020 Projects

    Fostering DIHs for Embedding Interoperability in Cyber-Physical Systems of European SMEs
    Fostering DIHs for Embedding Interoperability in Cyber-Physical Systems of European SMEs

    The initiative for Fostering DIHs for Embedding Interoperability in Cyber-Physical Systems of European SMEs (DIH4CPS) will help European enterprises overcome these innovation hurdles and establish Europe as a world leading innovator of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. DIH4CPS will create an embracing, interdisciplinary network of DIHs and solution providers, focussed on cyber-physical and embedded systems, interweaving knowledge and technologies from different domains, and connecting regional clusters with the pan-European expert pool of DIHs. Backed by the IVLab, an experienced and well-established network organisation focussed on Interoperability, DIH4CPS can innately build on an extensive existing network, add value to its existing knowledge transfer capabilities and guarantee the sustainability of the growing DIH network. DIH4CPS expands the already existing network and aims for creating an integrated platform for DIHs from different, especially digitally underdeveloped sectors and regions. A selection of eleven initially starting application experiments guarantees an outstanding funding for European SMEs and Mid-Caps right from the start and demonstrates the high dedication of the consortium to reduce the digital divide. At least ten additional experiments will take up that torch during the project and allow external companies from sectors in need to further exploit the DIH4CPS network and uplift their portfolio, especially by including (semi)-autonomy into their products and systems. DIH4CPS will not only benefit the application experiments but also the individual DIHs by significantly complementing the regional investments made. Implemented in the IVLab structure, the DIH4CPS Network will leverage and sustain its impact far beyond the project duration, creating a vibrant, overarching and cross sector one-stop-shop for collaboration between SMEs, DIHs and Tech providers.
