Stiftelsen SINTEF (SINTEF, Norway) (coordinator)

The organisation:
SINTEF is an independent research foundation based in Trondheim and Oslo, Norway. We receive only minimal state funding (around 3%), earning the majority of our income from contract research for industry and the public sector in Norway and internationally. SINTEF is the largest independent R&D organisation in the Scandinavian countries, employing around 2000 people. Contract research carried out by SINTEF covers all scientific and technical areas, and ranges from basic research through applied research to commercialisation of results into new products and business ideas, for both the domestic and international markets. SINTEF is represented in this consortium by SINTEF ICT, the department specialising in information and communications technology. The department has extensive experience over many years of participation in EU R&D projects, in both technical and co-ordination roles, in most areas of the ICT work programme.

Relevant skills/experience/technologies: SINTEF will contribute with expertise in software development methodologies, tools and aspects to secure software development. The most recent European and national projects relevant to this project include: SHIELDS, MASTER, Sodium, SecureChange, SIMS, and MUSIC.

Role in the project: SINTEF is responsible for administrative project coordination and facilitate effective technical coordination. We provide detailed knowledge of results from the ancestor projects, participate in architecture and requirements work, case study expertise and contribute with methods and tools supporting sharing of threat knowledge and secure software development. SINTEF is active in networking towards NESSI and standardisation work.

Interest in project results: SINTEF’s interest in project results is two-fold: (1) extending our competence in software security and development. Its basic research activities in the area will be validated by commercial vendors, opening up more business opportunities for contract research for Norwegian and international customers; (2) the opportunity to use project results to develop technology and services in the area of secure service composition.
