The INFORTECH Institute is a partner in a portfolio of ICT research projects. This portfolio, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), aims to develop and transfer innovative technologies to Walloon companies. These technologies include Grid Computing, service-oriented software architectures and software quality models. Grid Computing ensures the pooling of resources, such as computing power and storage space in the form of computer grids. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) assist in composing software applications through standard interfaces. Software quality models enable to control and improve the quality of software systems. The Institute is also actively involved in the ERDF-funded MEDIATIC portfolio.
