InfinIT in English

When collaboration on IT leads to infinite possibilities

InfinIT is a Danish network for innovative utilization of IT. Our goal is to convert the infinite possibilities that technology offers into concrete collaborations between research and industry.

Therefore, we invite researchers and enterprises working with or using IT to participate in collaboration projects and the exchange of knowledge, thus creating a forum where we can work together to generate exactly the knowledge that Danish industry and society needs – whether in terms of embedded systems, mobile technology, pervasive technologies, future internet or something else entirely.  

Welcome on the journey to the future! 

Strategic focus areas

Academically, InfinIT covers the entire spectrum from ‘Embedded Systems’ over ‘Mobile and Pervasive Systems’ to ‘Future Internet’, and within this overall strategic framework, we have set out four areas with special focus and activities:

  • Innovative uses of embedded, mobile and pervasive technologies with a special focus on tools for tracking and positioning
  • Collaboration support and learning by use of embedded, mobile and pervasive technologies with a special focus on developing the possibilities of distributed collaboration
  • Platforms for embedded and mobile systems, including both HW/SW platforms, pervasive middleware and communication technology
  • Methods, techniques and tools for the development of embedded, mobile and pervasive systems

Major activities

The work in infinIT builds upon close collaboration between research and enterprises. We perform both strategic activities and research activities, of which the major part take their point of departure in a number of interest groups consisting of representatives from both research institutions and enterprises. As such, the activities will be adapted to the needs and challenges that Danish industry faces.

As such, our major activities are:

  • interest group meetings where researchers and personnel from participating companies exchange knowledge and experiences within a specific field of interest.At the moment, these include:
  • Software Test
  • Mobile and Pervasive Learning
  • Usability and interaction design
  • Intelligent Textiles
  • Smart Grid & Intelligent Buildings
  • Tracking and Positioning Technologies
  • Green IT, Eco-Design & Low Power
  • High-Level Programming Language
  • Safety-Critical systems
  • Processes and IT.
  • workshops and seminars
