The Science domain and Social Sciences and Humanities domain of NWO have granted five applications within compartment 2 of the ‘Big Data: real time ICT for logistics’ research programme. CWI’s Marc Stevens is the main applicant of one of the five granted research projects.

Steven’s awarded project is called ‘Secure scalable policy-enforced distributed data processing’. It combines big data, high performance computing and cryptology in multidisciplinary fundamental and applied research. The project aims to develop integrated secure, end-to-end trusted, scalable and future-proof solutions for the problem of policy-enforced distributed data sharing and processing across multiple logistic domains.

Research programme
'
Big Data: Real Time ICT for Logistics' focuses on scientific research which enables innovative big data applications in the logistics sector. The call for proposals has been divided into two compartments of which compartment 2 focuses on three main subjects: the Internet of Things in logistics; data fusion across infrastructure, vehicles and cargo; data security in logistics. The budget for compartment 2 is 2,8 million euro and was made available by NWO and the Ministry of Economic Affairs.  

'Big Data: Real Time ICT for Logistics' is part of the Commit2Data initiative. Commit2Data is a national public-private research- and innovation programme which focuses on data science, stewardship, and technology relevant for the Dutch top sectors. The goal of Commit2Data is to keep and strengthen the Dutch top 5 position in Big Data.
