An example of cooperation between Research and Industry:
Coloured Petri Nets in the Development of Protocols
University of Aarhus, Denmark
During the past decade we have participated in numerous projects with industry, and in this talk
we present an example of such a project.
We describe both the organization and the technical contributions of the projects, and try to
indicate how the results impact on both research and industrial development.
There are good reasons for cooperation:
- Researchers need cooperation to test the usability of their theories.
- Industry needs cooperation to advance its development methods and products.
But there are a number of prerequisites for a successful project:
- Resources are needed for both researchers and industrial partners.
- Matchmaking is important.
- Tools are needed to make the theories applicable in practice.
