 Central aim of organisation
Research and development in the areas of Computer Networks, Network Security and Adaptive Systems

 Briefly describe your organisation
The FIM Institute was established in 1982/-83 by the Austrian Ministry of Science and was named, at the time, Research Institute for Microprocessor Technology. The institute’s main research during that period was done in the area of microprocessors and their applications in embedded systems.
Now the research areas of FIM are Computer Networks and Network Security, as well as Softwareagents and Adaptive Systems. The Institute`s name was changed to Institute for Information Processing and Microprocessor Technology, the abbreviation FIM, however, was kept.
FIM has always been engaged in technology transfer, in cooperation with small and medium sized enterprises in particular. As a result, FIM has a long tradition in cooperative project work with industry participation.
