INTPART Indo-Norwegian Project in Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems (INCAPS)

WISENET at University of Agder will lead the new INTPART project INCAPS, where our Center will collaborate with several highly reputed and top Indian Universities. This project establishes a long-term collaboration between top ranked Indian Universities, including Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IITH), International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH) and Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Hyderabad and Norwegian Universities and research Institutes, University of Agder (UiA), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) in world-class research and education says project manager, Prof. Linga Reddy Cenkeramaddi.

Only the foremost established and excellent research communities can apply for this INTPART grant and this is highly competitive as the competition is among the world renowned research Centers in Norway, as expressed by Prof. Baltasar Beferull-Lozano, Head of WISENET. Major goals are to strengthen the competitiveness and innovation capacity, solving major societal challenges and developing high-quality academic environments. WISENET obtains this grant by competing with the best research centers across the nation. Main objective is to create sustainable partnerships with the best international institutions and research communities across the globe.
