Technologies for a future digital society
Our world has become increasingly digitised, affecting how we communicate, manage our finances, access healthcare and even interact with household devices.
With more of our information held digitally and connected across multiple devices as well as in the cloud, significant new challenges are emerging. How can we process, transmit and secure the large volumes of information created by citizens, enterprise and government?
How can digital devices communicate at even higher rates, in a way that is secure? And as we collect more data, how do we deal with the challenges of storing, and analysing this?
How can we accelerate the global adoption of resulting technical innovations to deliver economic impact?
We seek to answer these questions, and in doing so, transform Belfast into a world-leading centre of enterprise and innovation.
ECIT, launched in 2004, is the anchor tenant at the Northern Ireland Science Park and is led by Professor John McCanny.
