MemrisTec Young Researcher Awards for MemTDE

The awards for the best presentation at the MemrisTec2024 workshop went to the young scientists from the project MemTDE (Memristive Time Difference Encoder):

Johannes Hellwig and Dimitris Spithouris from the Peter Grünberg Institute 7 at Forschungszentrum Jülich as well as Hugh Greatorex from CogniGron at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands were rated best in terms of their presentation skills by the jury from the MemrisTec Board.

The annual workshop of the MemrisTec priority program took place this year in Nuremberg at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg. The host was Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fey. The location and time of the workshop were specifically chosen so that demonstrators created during the first funding phase could also be presented at the embedded world trade fair.

We wish the MemTDE project team all the best for the future!

The European Research Council (ERC) has granted a EUR 13.5 million Synergy Grant to the Stochastic Spiking Wireless Multimodal Sensory Systems (SWIMS) project, led by a consortium of four prominent scientists, including Professor Elisabetta Chicca from the University of Groningen.

SWIMS aims to revolutionize the design of smart wireless multimodal sensory systems, drawing inspiration from the nonlinear signaling observed in the nervous system of insects like bees. The project proposes a paradigm shift in digital signal processing, focusing on a novel stochastic analog spiking neuromorphic concept for Internet-of-Things (IoT) nodes.

The grant underscores the significance of SWIMS in addressing the rising energy consumption of digital infrastructure and recognizes its potential to bring about breakthroughs in energy efficiency for future IoT technologies. The international collaboration involves researchers from TU Dresden, UC Louvain, EPFL, and the University of Groningen, emphasizing the project’s global impact. This funding reaffirms the ERC’s confidence in SWIMS as a pioneering force in advancing sustainable and energy-efficient IoT systems.
