Our Objectives

Summarizing AEGIS objectives, it can be said that the main objective of AEGIS is to make available cutting-edge software technology   to a plethora of industry, business and public sectors.

In AEGIS we believe that a lot of effort is wasted supporting antiquated structures and paradigms regarding IT deployment. AEGIS objectives focus to the needs of the citizens and industry.

The public sector in particular, is mostly lagging behind the private sector, and is in grave need of mature unbiased guidance in deploying IT in a manner that, on one hand preserves the privacy of the citizens, while improving rather than complicating the lives of both civil servants and citizens.

Provide the seeds for world-class Computer Science research

Our goal is to provide an environment with minimal red tape (and staff to shelter researchers from bureaucratic tedium) and European-class remuneration (while the center will provide bridging funds to help researchers deal with lack of funding between projects, we strongly believe in researchers receiving funds from the projects that they work on).

Provide unbiased advice & assistance to the public sector

AEGIS aims to provide unbiased advice and assistance to the public sector. This can be achieved by having AEGIS function as a think tank offering proposals and IT-related advice to various government departments, and as a software development facility providing advanced software systems that help towards achieving the goals of effective and secure e-government.
