New Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) research programs selected

The new HIIT research programs will be launched in August 2016

The HIIT board decided in their meeting on 1.6.2016 to launch the following new HIIT research programs in August 2016:

  • Foundations of Computational Health, program director Juho Rousu (Aalto University)
  • Computational Inference, program director Samuel Kaski (Aalto University
  • Building Trust in Secure Computing Systems, program director Valtteri Niemi (University of Helsinki)
  • Augmented Research, program director Giulio Jacucci (University of Helsinki)

The operating term for the first 3 programs is 5 years, 1.8.2016-31.7.2021, and the program directors were selected from the candidates in the ongoing call for new Academy Centers of Excellence. The fourth program, which continues the activities of the ongoing HIIT-Wide Focus Area, will run for 2 years. Each of the four programs has participating professors from both Aalto University and University of Helsinki, and is strongly committed to support the joint “Helsinki ICT” mission of HIIT.

Starting August 1st, HIIT will also have a new Steering Group consisting of the directors of the new programs.
