Goals and Scope
During the last decade a number of national and international financial instruments have been funding research, innovation and development programmes. From local to global scales, many projects have been funded delivering research and industrial innovation through reinforcing the excellence of science, speeding up the industrial leadership, and supporting the growth of new markets. These initiatives have been driving economic growth and creating employment opportunities, by addressing societal challenges, boosting productivity and securing competitiveness.
The Projects Showcase event at STAF’15 (http://www.disim.univaq.it/staf2015/projects-showcase/) is dedicated to national and international projects dissemination and cooperation. The event provides the opportunity for researchers and practitioners (from both academia and industry) involved in completed, to be started or ongoing research projects related to Software Technologies – Applications and Foundations, and hence to the topics of the leading conferences federated by STAF’15 and other co-located events.
The Projects Showcase welcomes contributions disseminating the objectives of the project, outcomes of specific deliverables, the final outcome of the project, as well as, advances beyond the state of the art, overall innovation potential, exploitation approach and (expected) impact, marketing value, barriers and obstacles. Thus, the Projects Showcase at STAF’15 represents a concrete opportunities for participants to share experience, ideas, on-going work, and knowledge that can lead to fruitful collaborations and cross-sectoral concertations among projects.
