CRI’s collaboration with the Bruno Kessler Foundation (BKF) in Trento, Italy is an ambitious effort to encourage interdisciplinary cooperation between the University of Haifa and one of the leading computer science research institutes in Italy. BKF was formerly known as ITC-irst. This collaboration is funded by the Autonomous Province of Trento, Italy and by the University of Haifa. It is headed by Prof. Martin C. Golumbic (CRI) and Prof. Oliviero Stock (BKF). It currently supports more than nine projects in CRI’s five laboratories. These projects include research in the fields of: artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, graph theory, occupational therapy and rehabilitation.
This collaboration began with the “Innovative Technologies for Human Development” agreement between the University of Haifa and BKF. It was initiated in July 2003 and completed in February 2007. An expanded version of the agreement, with new funding of 600,000 euro, was signed in February 2007
