Van computerarchitectuur tot communicatie in de oudheid: 4 baanbrekende ERC-projecten schieten uit de startblokken

In 2018 starten aan de UGent vier nieuwe baanbrekende projecten met financiering van de European Research Council (ERC). Het gaat om 1 Advanced Grant uit de oproep van 2016, en drie Starting Grants van de 2017 oproep.

Voor professor Lieven Eeckhout is dit reeds zijn vierde ERC project, waarmee hij Belgisch ERC recordhouder wordt. Eerder ontving hij al een ERC Starting Grant in 2009 (1.389.000 euro), en twee ERC Proof-of-Concept Grants in 2012 en 2015 (samen bijna 300.000 euro). Nu ontvangt hij 2,5 miljoen euro voor zijn ERC Advanced Grant, als één van de jongste onderzoekers in Europa.

Lieven Eeckhout wins the 2017 Maurice Wilkes Award

Lieven Eeckhout, Professor at Ghent University, Department of Electronics and Information Systems, was presented the Maurice Wilkes Award at the 44th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA) in Toronto, Canada. This Award is granted annually by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (ACM SIGARCH), for outstanding contributions to computer architecture, made by individuals in the first 20 years of their careers. It is the first time since the inauguration of this award, 20 years ago, that a researcher from a European institution has the honor of receiving this award.

Better protection for mobile software thanks to researchers from Ghent University

Thanks to a state-of-the-art software security framework designed by engineers of the ELIS (Electronics and Information Systems) department of Ghent University, it is possible to establish trustworthy execution of software on mobile client devices. The strength of this framework lies in the combination of several new and improved protection techniques. In addition, ASPIRE also developed new metrics and a new methodology to evaluate software protection levels, with the ambition of making the methodology the future gold standard of software protection.

The project was very successful and received an excellent assessment by the European Commission.
