MIDE program brings concrete results

The accelerating pace of the MIDE projects’ academic output became obvious at the annual MIDE Project Preview Seminar, held on June 15 at Keilaniemi Life Science Center. During the half-day seminar representatives of each MIDE project discussed the recent results and challenges in their work. One important aim of the meeting was to familiarise the researchers to the other MIDE projects and share feedback and comments between the audience.

The outlook to the projects’ academic output seems bright. In his opening words, the program leader Yrjö Neuvo pointed out the well developing figures in academic publications and dissertations. While in 2009-2010 the projects produced 59 journal publications, 86 conference papers and 6 doctoral theses, in 2011-2012 the projects expect to have an increasing amount of publications and a total of 37 dissertations. Also some 19 side and follow-up projects are either planned or already in progress.

On November 15 the MIDE research program will present itself in a Demo Day at Saha conference space in Otaniemi. In the whole-day open event the audience is given a possibility to visit each project at its’ own stand. In addition to these demo stands, the Aalto-1 Student Satellite project, the MIDE postgraduate course Bit Bang and the research program itself will have a stand of its’ own.
