On July 11th IMDEA Networks held the Annual Inaugural Meeting of its Scientific Council in Madrid. The meeting marked a milestone in the establishment of the research foundation. This prestigious Council is comprised of eleven of the World’s top researchers in network technologies.
The Council was introduced to dignitaries, including senior representatives from the Regional Government of Madrid, who created and founded the IMDEA initiative. Having formally accepted their positions as Members, these eminent experts proceeded to discuss various aspects of the Foundation’s scientific strategy, which will help to steer the direction of research to be pursued over the coming years.
IMDEA Networks works in close collaboration with researchers from several universities in Madrid, including University of Carlos III. The Director of the Foundation, Dr. Arturo Azcorra, Head of the Telematic Engineering Department at the University, chaired the Scientific Committee.
Thanks to the invaluable contribution of the Scientific Committee, the Foundation will continue to build on the successes of its first year, recruiting more research and administrative support staff to help propel the organisation into the forefront of network technology research institutes in the World.
