RFID in Europe AISBL is a not-for-profit organization established in 2012. RFID in Europe's principle goal is to promote the adoption of Radio Frequency Identification and related technology solutions enabling small and medium sized organizations throughout Europe to gain competitive advantage through their best use. RFID in Europe connects with European end-users, operators, solution providers, universities, research establishments, non-government and government organizations and all other European stakeholders through own initiatives and promotion of national projects via our international network. RFID in Europe is an extension of a European Commission FP7 Thematic Network called RACE networkRFID initiated in 2009.

Pat Doody - Chairman
(Institute of Technology, Tralee, Wireless and Mobility Research Group - ITT)

The Institute of Technology, Tralee (ITT, www.ittralee.ie) is based on two campuses, with a community of over 3,500 students. ITT has a growing research community of over 400 academic staff and researchers. One of the Research Centres in the Institute is the Centre for Innovation in Distributed Systems (CIDS). Dr. Pat Doody is a co-founder and the Director of CIDS which was formed as collaboration between the Wireless and Mobility Research Group in the Institute of Technology, Tralee and the MIT Forum for Supply Chain and is also an affiliate member of MIT Energy Initiative.

The primary research focus is in the area of Knowledge Discovery in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Internet of Things (IOT) systems with a particular interest in projects that are applied and industrial in nature. The group has been leading the drive towards RFID and IOT adoption by Irish industry which is proportionally low compared with other EU countries Other research expertise covers Artificial Intelligence, Sensor Networks, Reality Mining, Middleware Development, Mobile Software Development among others.

Philippe Rohou (European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics - ERCIM)

ERCIM is a European Economic Interest Group (EEIG) federating 19 different national research organisations with strong activity in IT research and development, across 19 European countries (www.ercim.org). The central ERCIM Office based in Sophia Antipolis, France, will coordinate the RACE networkRFID initiative, ensuring the neutral and unbiased administrative and financial coordination of the network. The ERCIM Office team has a proven expertise in managing research projects, ranging from pan-European Networks of Excellence (CoreGRID IST-004265) to leading Integrated Projects (ACGT IST-026996, VITALAS IST- 045389). ERCIM has also a very valuable competence in project dissemination and technology transfer. In this perspective, ERCIM will also provide support to the network’s dissemination activities, in particular through the web site design and maintenance, and by establishing a sustainable information flow across both partners and workpackages.
