IT4Innovations takes an active part in cooperation with industry. For its activities aimed at facilitating implementation of high-performance numerical simulations, advanced data analysis, and artificial intelligence primarily in small and medium-sized enterprises, IT4Innovations has been registered by the European Commission as the Digital Innovation Hub.  These activities are supported by several international projects under the Horizon 2020 program. In 2020, IT4Innovations together with the Moravian-Silesian Innovation Centre merged their know-how and established the Digital Innovation Hub Ostrava (DIH Ostrava). The Hub will help companies primarily based in the Moravian-Silesian Region to identify and potentially even meet their needs in the field of digitalization. Other fields of applied research include augmented and virtual reality, rendering, visualization of scientific data, network security, the Internet of Things, material research, and modelling for nanotechnologies.

Cooperation possibilities

The most common forms of cooperation with the commercial sector are projects of contract and collaborative research as well as rental of computational resources.

We have participated in more than 100 projects of contract research and distributed more than 10 million core hours across 29 projects via rental of computational resources in the last 3 years. For more information, see Examples of Cooperation.

As far as our activities within collaborative research are concerned, we cooperate with industrial enterprises in more than 40 international (H2020 and Interreg programs) and national (Technology Agency of the Czech Republic, Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Interior Ministry, and regional programs) projects. For more information, see Research projects.

INFORMATION SECURITY

Since December 2018, IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center has been an Information Security Management System certificate holder according to the international ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (Czech version: ČSN ISO/IEC 27001:2014) standard.

The ISO 27001 certificate has been awarded for the following areas:

  • Provision of national supercomputing infrastructure services,
  • High-performance computing problems solutions,
  • Performance of advanced data analysis and simulations,
  • Processing of large data sets.

As a part of VSB-TUO we are also certified with the ISO 9001.
