The IT Innovation Centre is an autonomous science-park-based applied research centre. Part of the University of Southampton's School of Electronics and Computer Science, we specialise in collaborative projects to enable take-up of novel IT, particularly by industry and commerce. We research, develop, architect, engineer and integrate innovative IT systems.
We provide consultancy services and deliver strategies, road maps, proofs-of-concept, demonstrators and novel operational systems. IT Innovation has been working on Grid technologies and their application and use since the mid-1990's. Today, IT Innovation is a major player at UK, European and world levels in projects focussing on the effective use of Grid technologies and services, specialising in business processes, workflow, semantics and security. IT Innovation leads the development of GRIA, Grid middleware which enables commercial use of the Grid in a secure, interoperable and flexible manner.
