Universitaet des Saarlandes USSAR
Partner description:
Founded in 1948 in co-operation with France; early international orientation; Europa- Institut, Frankreichzentrum. The expertise in computer science found within the University is complemented by a range of top-class research institutes including the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence, the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science and the International Conference and Research Centre for Computer Science at Dagstuhl Castle. Computer science in Saarbrücken has also proved extremely successful in combination with other disciplines.
 
Examples of such fruitful interdisciplinary co-operations include business information technology, law and informatics, computational biology, computational linguistics and cognitive science, the latter being the subject of a nationally funded collaborative research centre. Other collaborative research centres at Saarland University have been established in the areas of biomedicine and materials research. New research centres, one for language research and language technology and one for nanobiotechnology are presently under construction.

Participation in the project:
In order to assure the involvement of the end users during the pilots the expert in socio economic assessment, the partner Saarland University, (See WP2 and WP4), will carry out several activities for guaranteeing the participation of the users of the buildings, the running and the optimisation of the ICT based solution.
