Kevin Doolin is the Director of Innovation at Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG).
In this role, Kevin is responsible for oversight and strategic direction of TSSG’s Applied and Commercial Research Activities. He plays a key role in driving the TSSG Research Units and staff to get involved in EU applied research, and the EI ComFund, driving proposal strategies for all relevant research funding calls including, but not limited to, the key cross-unit decisions, assisting in commercial, research and proposal development of each unit.
Kevin’s area of expertise is Pervasive Computing, which is the forerunner to ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). Kevin has been involved in this space since he joined TSSG in 2004. Kevin has already coordinated a number of key EU projects in this space, for example the €15M EU flagship project, which closed in April 2014 and received significant praise from expert scientific reviewers. Kevin describes the project, “SOCIETIES focuses on bridging the gap between pervasive and social computing and enables the establishment of dynamically formed networks of people and things which can in turn be offered personalised mobile services”.
