The PRiME Research Project
The PRiME Research Project
We have just been awarded a large EPSRC-funded Programme Grant of £5.5M (totalling £10.7M when University and Industrial contributions are included), with Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi as the Director and myself as one of the Co-Investigators. I will also have the role of Applications Leader, and are responsible for ensuring cross-layer collaboration between research partners.

The project, codename PRiME (Power-efficient, Reliable, Many-core Embedded systems), will address major challenges in the design and implementation of energy-efficient and reliable embedded systems with many-core processors.

The grant's academic collaborators are Imperial College, Manchester and Newcastle, with industrial partners ARM, Imagination Technologies, Altera, Freescale and Microsoft Research. The project will be launching in the next couple of months - watch this space!
