System Design Industry Council for Training - SYDIC-Training

Project of the EC Information Society Technologies (IST) Programme



The SYDIC-Training project is devoted to the organization of training courses on system specification methodology, concepts and system validation methods for complex electronic systems. The project answers an increasing industry demand to efficient transfer of design methodology research results from academia to industry.

Project Description

The SYDIC-Training project is devoted to the organization of training courses on system specification methodology, concepts and system validation methods for complex electronic systems. The project answers an increasing industry demand to efficient transfer of design methodology research results from academia to industry.

In addition training courses focusing on new or prototype EDA tools entering the market will be developed by two leading EDA companies who are project partners.

The project will also deliver training courses based on newly emerging standard methods (languages, notations) used in the specification of complex systems.

One of the most important objectives of the project is to provide and prove the mechanisms of customizing education and training services in order to satisfy the dynamically changing requirements of the system industry. The customisation will address both the technical content and the delivery mechanisms to provide just-in-time training services for a specific set of industry requirements.

To establish an efficient mechanism for the promotion of the newly developed training.

Ultimately the most ambitious objective of the project is to create the ECSI Institute for the long term exploitation of project outputs. This Institute will continuously enlarge its course portfolio to provide highly advanced expertise in the domain of system design to the whole European industry.

The SYDIC-Training project was prepared in response to the IST Programme Action Line IV.1.3 "Development of skills in micro- and opto-electronics ". It officially started on April 1st, 2002 and last 2 years. The projects overall budget is 3.6M€ with the EC contribution of 1.8M€
