Huawei and SURFsara join forces for ICT innovation in Smart Healthcare and Smart Energy


Picture made by Vera Duivenvoorden
31 Jan 2017 Amsterdam - Huawei and SURFsara have started their strategic partnership for stimulating ICT-technology innovations in the fields of Smart Healthcare and Smart Energy that will benefit society and a sustainable economy. On January 31, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for this collaboration has been signed. The innovations in this partnership will be under the umbrella of the new SURF Open Innovation Lab.

Huawei will contribute to this partnership by providing expertise as well as cutting-edge technologies including next-generation Cloud computing servers. SURFsara, as the national HPC & data services & expertise centre, is in the unique position to bring together the growing demands and challenges in the digitalization of research and education in The Netherlands, and the opportunities of deployment of new ICT-technologies for innovation.

The strategic partnership will combine Huawei's breakthroughs in ICT technology and SURFsara's knowledge of advanced and sustainable supercomputing and data infrastructure, to create an experimental environment for innovations in deep learning, Internet of Things, Big Data and HPC technologies with pilots in the areas of smart health care and smart energy. The joint experiments will be undertaken as a programme in the SURF Open Innovation Lab.

In the SURF Open Innovation Lab, research and education organisations, technology providers, start-ups, industry and SURF will collaborate on technology assessment, prototyping, demonstrators and knowledge investments in key ICT-technology areas.

Prof. dr. Anwar Osseyran, CEO of SURFsara, stated: "This collaboration with a world leader in ICT will offer us the possibility to deploy the best of breed in technology in our open innovation lab and will enable the members of the SURF cooperative to increase the quality of education and research and develop with us innovative ICT solutions in the specific areas of smart health and smart energy."

Wonder Wang, CEO of Huawei Technologies Netherlands, stated: "For the past 10 years, Huawei has invested yearly over 10 percent of its global revenue into R&D. Innovation is key to Huawei and this thrilling cooperation will maintain our leading position in ICT developments. SURFsara has unrivalled knowledge in the field of HPC and data infrastructure. By joining our expertise and innovation capability we are empowered to create new solutions that will equip the huge potential of HPC and Big Data."
