Network of Excellence in Internet Science

Centre for Research and Technology Hellas

The Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) is the largest research centre in Northern Greece, founded in March 2000. CERTH is a non-profit organization that directly reports to the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT), of the Greek Ministry of Development. CERTH has an activity that spans various facets of wireless and Internet communication technologies. It has a significant experience in R&D on wireless infrastructures in national and international level. It coordinated the FP6 STREP NET-REFOUND (on network information theory), FP7 STREPs N-CRAVE on network coding approaches for wireless networks and OPNEX on optimization-based wireless network protocol design, and currently coordinates (apart from this NoE) FP7 STREP CONECT on Cooperative Networking for High Capacity Transport Architectures, FP7 FET STAMINA on solving large-scale network optimization problems, the IRSES Marie Curie CoopLab on experimentation on wireless cooperative networks and the IAPP Marie Curie CodeLance on advanced network coding for video surveillance. It further participated in the FP6 WIP, FP7 NanoDataCenter and OneLab2, the NoEs NEWCOMM, Euro-NGI and CRUISE and currently participates in the NoE Euro-NF and FP7 STREPs STAR-TRANS and PURSUIT. The group’s activity outlined above is complemented and supported by extensive experimentation in its growing wireless testbed facility, the NITOS platform.
