Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Media Centre

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

What we of­fer:

In early 2016, the European Com­mis­sion held a public con­sul­ta­tion of the rese­arch com­mu­nity to gather ideas on sci­ence and tech­no­logy chal­len­ges that could be addres­sed through future FET Flagships. End of 2016, Com­mis­sio­ner Oet­tin­ger hosted a round-table event with high-level rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves from the Mem­ber Sta­tes, indus­try and aca­de­mia. They agreed on three major areas where pro­mi­sing grand sci­ence and tech­no­logy chal­len­ges could be addres­sed by the FET Flagships: "ICT and con­nec­ted society", "Health and the life sci­en­ces" and "Energy, envi­ron­ment and cli­mate change". As a result, a call for pre­pa­ra­tory actions for future rese­arch initia­ti­ves was laun­ched in Octo­ber 2017 as part of the Hori­zon 2020 FET Work Pro­gramme 2018. From the 33 pro­po­sals sub­mit­ted, six were selec­ted after a two-stage eva­lua­tion by inde­pen­dent high-level experts.
The European Com­mis­sion has cho­sen Time Machine as one of the six pro­po­sals retai­ned for pre­pa­ring large scale rese­arch initia­ti­ves to be stra­te­gi­cally deve­lo­ped in the next decade. €1 mil­lion in fun­ding has been gran­ted for pre­pa­ring the detailed road­maps of this initia­tive that aims at extrac­ting and uti­li­sing the Big Data of the past. Time Machine fore­sees to design and imple­ment advan­ced new digi­ti­sa­tion and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence (AI) tech­no­lo­gies to mine Europe’s vast cul­tu­ral heri­tage, pro­vi­ding fair and free access to infor­ma­tion that will sup­port future sci­en­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal deve­lop­ments in Europe.
Time Machine pro­mo­tes a uni­que alli­ance of lea­ding European aca­de­mic and rese­arch orga­ni­sa­ti­ons, cul­tu­ral heri­tage insti­tu­ti­ons and pri­vate enter­pri­ses that are fully aware of the huge poten­tial of digi­ti­sa­tion and the very pro­mi­sing new paths for sci­ence, tech­no­logy and inno­va­tion that can be ope­ned through the infor­ma­tion sys­tem that will be deve­lo­ped, based on the Big Data of the Past. In addi­tion to the 33 core insti­tu­ti­ons that will be fun­ded by the European Com­mis­sion, more than 200 orga­ni­sa­ti­ons from 33 coun­tries are par­ti­ci­pa­ting to the initia­ti­ves, inclu­ding seven natio­nal libra­ries (Aus­tria, Bel­gium, France, Israel, Nether­lands, Spain, Switz­er­land), 19 state archi­ves (Bel­gium, Bul­ga­ria, Croa­tia, Czech Repu­blic, Den­mark, Esto­nia, Fin­land, Ger­many, Hun­gary,Lit­hua­nia, Malta, Nor­way, Poland, Roma­nia, Slo­ve­nia, Spain, Slo­va­kia, Swe­den, and Switz­er­land), famous muse­ums (Lou­vre, Rijk­mu­seum), 95 aca­de­mic and rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons, 30 European com­pa­nies and 18 governmen­tal bodies. In the next 12 mon­ths, Time Machine is expec­ted to grow as a large com­mu­nity of com­mu­nities, sharing a stan­dar­di­sed plat­form, with more empowering tools.
Wit­hin the Time Machine the TU Dres­den is respon­si­ble to deve­lop the stra­tegy and imple­men­ta­tion plan for Out­re­ach and Inno­va­tion. The work is orga­nised around tasks Dis­se­mi­na­tion, Policy and Legal Issues, Ethics, Know­ledge Trans­fer, and Exploi­ta­tion Sup­port Struc­tures. The spe­ci­fic objec­tives are to pre­pare a road­map, involve and engage rele­vant sta­ke­hol­ders, iden­tify fun­ding sources and deter­mine con­di­ti­ons faci­li­ta­ting access to fun­ding. TU Dres­den will be respon­si­ble for:
  • Coor­di­na­tion in terms of pre­pa­ra­tion of docu­ments to guide the work and the orga­ni­sa­tion of sta­ke­hol­der work­shops. Fur­ther com­pri­sed is the com­pi­la­tion of a road­map.
  • Pro­po­sing of road­maps and actions to fos­ter dis­se­mi­na­tion and links to rele­vant sci­en­ti­fic com­mu­nities, inno­va­tors, and other pri­vate and public sec­tor actors invol­ved with cul­tu­ral heri­tage as well as among decision-makers and the gene­ral public.
  • Lever­aging exploi­ta­tion sup­port struc­tures to assess opti­ons of and pro­vide men­to­ring sup­port for the com­mer­cial exploi­ta­tion of results pro­du­ced. This will take into account tech­no­logy assess­ment and busi­ness men­to­ring of poten­tial entre­pre­neurs amongst the Time Machine com­mu­nity. Out­come will be exploi­ta­tion sup­port instru­ments.
