Through a Joint Project Office (JPO), the Mihailo Pupin Institute is uniting ICT expertise and resources with prominent German R&D organization, Fraunhofer-FIRST from Berlin. At the Fraunhofer-Pupin JPO, systems engineering and information technologies are combined to develop innovative solutions in the area of management information systems, knowledge and content technologies and applications, e-education, decision support systems, etc. A wide range of services has been provided. The service scope covers customized IT solutions, software outsourcing, technology consulting, engineering, prototyping, and system design and integration. The Fraunhofer-Pupin JPO assembles a team with the best mixture of expertise appropriate to that specific engagement.
Fraunhofer-Pupin JPO team is involved in eleven current FP7 projects (REFLECT, Perfection HELENA, ICT-WEB-PROMS, HydroWEEE, EnergyWarden, Emili, Green, Proceed, Cesar, MetaNet, Forsee, Cascade, Lod2, Ween). In these projects, the areas of our occupation are: semantic web, semantic knowledge representation & processing, natural language processing, intelligent DSS, spatial DSS, web services and service-oriented architectures.
Fraunhofer-Pupin JPO team has acquired an extensive research experience through more than twenty successful projects in different areas: decision support systems, artificial intelligence, expert systems, complex web applications development. As results of these projects, the following software products have been developed: BEST , INVEX , WEB4Web, RAIL-Invest , FIDES , PEGAS , IVP , Bonitet , CITRA , SUSDEV, SARIB, Prometea , CyberSCHOOL , WiseChoice , RIO , ClearWater , BioAS , SPORE , etc.
Besides, we were engaged in two Interreg/CADSES projects (I2E and STRiM ) and two bilateral research projects (cooperation with Greek and German partners).
