PetaMedia is a Network of Excellence funded by the European
Commission's Seventh Framework Programme. FP7 is a key tool to respond
to Europe's needs in terms of jobs and competitiveness, and one of its
goals is to maintain leadership in the global knowledge economy.
Four partners form the core of PetaMedia, each representing a national
network: Delft University of Technology; EPFL from Switzerland; Queen
Mary University London from the UK and from Germany the Technical
University of Berlin. From The Netherlands, Delft University of
Technology coordinates PetaMedia.
The goal of the NoE PetaMedia is to bring together the research of
four national networks in the Netherlands, Switzerland, UK and Germany
in the area of multimedia content analysis (MCA) and social
peer-to-peer networks and eventually to establish a European virtual
centre of excellence.
The collective research that will integrate the four national networks
will be directed towards the synergetic combination of user-based
collaborative tagging, peer-to-peer networks and multimedia content
analysis, and towards identification and exploration of potentials and
limitations of combined tagging, MCA and SP2P concepts. Solutions and
collaborative research field trials will be build on the coordinating
partner's open source P2P software Tribler.
