Research at the Department of Information Technologies
The research at the department is organized around research laboratories and research groups. Each laboratory and research group has its own leader, who is responsible for the research carried out at the lab and for the group of researchers at the lab (faculty, post docs, Ph.D. students and M.Sc. students). All but one of these labs is also a TUCS research lab. The motivation for forming the research laboratories was to empower researchers and encourage them to start their own research groups and take responsibility for advancing their own field of research. This strategy has worked well, with all research labs now being quite active, both in carrying out research projects and in applying for external funding.
