EUNITE - EUropean Network on Intelligent TEchnologies for Smart Adaptive Systems


On 1 January 2001, EUNITE - the European Network of Excellence on Intelligent Technologies for Smart Adaptive Systems - has started. It is funded by the Information Society Technologies Programme (IST) within the European Union's Fifth RTD Framework Programme.

Smart adaptive systems are adaptive systems developed with the aid of Intelligent Technologies including neural networks, fuzzy systems, methods from machine learning, and evolutionary computing. So far, research in these areas has been carried out in separate communities with little or even no co-operation and scientific contacts. However, the need for adaptivity in real application problems is the same and the end-user is not technology dependent: he just wants his problem to be solved.

EUNITE aims to join forces of Intelligent Techologies for exploiting the potential of their synergies towards building Smart Adaptive Systems and promote their practical implementations. It is intended to encourage the joint exploitation of intelligent systems techniques and activities that intent to build Smart Adaptive Systems in industry by:

  • Promoting the dialogue between the separate research communities of Intelligent Technologies
  • Shorten the lead time from scientific innovation to actual applications in industry or economy via technology transfer actions
  • Encourage new enterprises coming into this area with success stories and best practice information
  • Strengthen European training activities and collaboration
