Memberships & Affiliations
- Cosylab is one of the flagships of the Slovenian high-tech industry, recognized and supported by the Slovenian government and top officials.
Cosylab has been accepted and is actively contributing as a member of two competence centres, two technology networks and one centre of excellence. In addition, Cosylab is also a recognized industry leader by having had its CEO elected as a member of the National Academy of Engineering, which is widely considered to be the highest honor conferred in the engineering profession.
- Cosylab is the co-founder of the Centre of Excellence for Biosensors, Instrumentation and Process Control (COBIK), which is funded by the Slovenian government and EU structural funds. COBIK, established in 2009, is a private research institution that employs almost 90 highly qualified researchers from the most challenging and promising fields, such as bio-chemistry, bio-instrumentation, optics and advanced new cleaning processes in pharmacy. The centre consists of six laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment and currently runs 20 research projects.
The focus of the centre is to create and implement cutting-edge solutions into partners` industrial processes or upgrade them through new partnership. This focus results in a broad, world-wide network.
The COBIK is an operation financed by the European Union, European Regional Development Fund and Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport.
- Cosylab is a member of Slovenia's ICT technology network. Together with other ICT technology network partners the company established the Competence Centre (OpComm). The operation goal is to design and build a prototype of an open communication platform which will serve as the basis for the development of various new advanced services and applications for the Internet of Things.
The OpComm is an operation financed by the European Union, European Regional Development Fund and Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport.
- Cosylab is a member of the Network Process Control Technology (PCT). The PCT technology network consists of 10 enterprises representing the majority of the most important companies in the Slovenian industrial process automation and information services market, and additionally three institutions performing the majority of this kind of research. With the introduction of process control technology in different areas, Cosylab is contributing to an increase in economic competitiveness.
Process control technology results in increasing the scope and adaptability of production, improving the quality of products, reducing the consumption of energy and raw materials, decreasing the environmental pollution, and increasing the occupational safety, etc.
- Cosylab is a consortium partner at the Competence Centre for Advanced Control Technologies (CCACT). The scope of the CCACT is control technology, which combines automation, computerization and cybernetization of processes and systems. This is a "hidden technology", present in every device, system or production process of minimum sophistication; it therefore represents one of the key development factors in the world and it is of high importance for further development of Slovenia.
Cosylab is a project leader of a high performance platform for the control of fusion reactors which is one field of work at CCACT.
The CCACT is an operation financed by the European Union, European Regional Development Fund and Republic of Slovenia, Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport.
- Cosylab has experience with working on projects of the European Commission's Framework Programmes.
From 2004 to 2008, Cosylab participated on the EU’s 6th framework project, Dependable Distributed Systems (DeDiSys). Other partners in the consortium were Vienna University of Technology (Vienna, Austria), Wroclav University of Technology (Wroclaw, Poland), Linköpings Universitet (Linköping, Sweden), Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (Valencia, Spain), Frequentis (Austria), Etra (Spain) in XLAB (Slovenia). In the project, Cosylab led two work-packages.
- Cosylab is a Full Partner of the oPAC Network, which aims to optimize the performance of any Particle Accelerator (oPAC). oPAC brings together leading research centres, universities, and industry partners to jointly train the next generation of researchers in accelerator science and technology. oPAC aims at developing long term collaboration and links between the involved teams across sectors and disciplinary boundaries and to thus help defining improved research and training standards.
oPAC is funded by the European Commission under Grant Agreement Number 289485.
- Cosylab is an associated partner at the LA3NET network.
In this frame, research centres, universities and industry partners from across Europe will develop beyond-state-of-the-art techniques and technologies through a joint inter-sectorial training program for early stage researchers within a unique European partnership. The exploitation of Lasers for Applications at Accelerator facilities for ion beam generation, acceleration and diagnostics is the goal of the new NETwork (LA³NET) within the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) scheme.
LA³NET is funded by the European Commission under Grant Agreement Number 289191.
- From 2006 through 2008, Cosylab participated in the project Service Enabling Infrastructures (SEI), in a consortium of 8 Slovenian companies (Iskratel, Alpineon, Medius, MG-SOFT, Perftech, Rap-Ing, SRC.SI) and the Faculty of Electronics of the University of Ljubljana. The project was co-founded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Joint-development project SEI (Service Enabling Infrastructure) in the consortia with numerous Slovenian IT companies under the umbrella of Iskratel and with the support of Slovenian Ministry of the Economy, where Cosylab’s participation was within the development of scalable and high-performance application server for web based tele-information application services.
Supported by EC within the FP6.
