Scientific and other projects

Horizon 2020 project "National Competence Centres in the framework of EuroHPC (EUROCC)"

  • Subject: To establish a single National Competence Centre (NCC) in the area of high-performance computing (HPC) in countries-members. These NCCs will coordinate activities in all HPC-related fields at the national level and serve as a contact point for customers from industry, science, (future) HPC experts, and the general public alike.
  • Period: September 2020 - August 2022.


Expert contract in project “Development of a system for the description of studies”

  • Subject: Preparation of the descriptor for Informatics Study field.
  • Funding: European Social Fund, Lithuania republic state budget.
  • Period: September 2019 - September 2020.

 

COST action CA15225 "Fractional-order systems - analysis, synthesis and their importance for future design"

  • Subject: Fractional-order systems have lately been attracting significant attention and gaining more acceptance as generalization to classical integer-order systems. Mathematical basics of fractional-order calculus were laid nearly 300 years ago and since that it has gained deeply rooted mathematical concepts. Today, it is known that many real dynamic systems cannot be described by a system of simple differential equation or of integer-order system. In practice we can encounter such systems in electronics, signal processing, thermodynamics, biology, medicine, control theory, etc. The Action will favour scientific advancement in above mentioned areas by coordinating activities of academic research groups towards an efficient deployment of fractal theory to industry applications. The cooperation of researchers from different institutions will guarantee wide visibility of Action results.
  • Period: October 2016  - October 2020.

 

EU Structural funds project "Development of Lithuanian speech-based services (LIEPA 2)"

  • Subject:  Active use in electronic media will become one of the most important survival factors for small languages in the near future. Lithuanian spoken language is classified as so-called non-commercial language and has little access to automatic use of other languages processing tools. Therefore, there is emerging risk that its practical use will become more and more obsolete. Digital products and services created by LIEPA-2 will increase usage of Lithuanian in digital space.
  • Period: December 2017 - December 2020.
  • Funding: Central project management agency. 
  • Contract No.: 02.3.1-CPVA-V-527-01-0001.

 

EU Structural funds project "Lithuanian speech-based services (LIEPA)"

  • Subject: The aim is to create solutions (Lithuanian spoken language (voice) synthesizer and its applications; command and phrase recognizer and its applications; Lithuanian continuous speech recognizer; speech corpus and their applications) by applying modern information and communication technologies and to make it freely accessible for third party employment. 
  • Period: January 2013 - July 2015.
  • Funding: Information society committee under the Ministry of the economy.
  • Contract No.: VP2-3.1-IVPK-12-K-01-001.

 

Research group R&D project "Development and validation of control by Lithuanian speech unit model for the disabled (GALIA)"
