DIVERSIFY: Ecology-inspired software diversity for distributed adaptation in collaborative adaptive systems EU Framework 7 2016
Biodiversity is essential for the robustness and adaptability of ecological systems. Similarly, multiple theoretical and experimental scientific results emphasize the need for high levels of diversity for the wealth of other forms of complex systems (e.g., economy or social communities). DIVERSIFY explores ecological notions of diversity as the foundation for a holistic software design principle and increased adaptive capacities in collaborative, adaptive systems (CAS). In Trinity, we are investigating software diversity synthesis and adaptation, leveraging model-driven approaches to deal with the heterogeneity of entities in CASs.

TRANSFoRm. Translational Research and Patient Safety in Europe EU Framework 7 2015
TRANSFoRm is developing ICT concepts and tools for the interoperability of health record data from Primary Care and research data (clinical trials), including identification of suitable subjects for research, management of standardised data elements and forms, and support for both research and patient care. In Trinity, we are providing the ICT infrastructure for such Europe-wide queries, in particular, the middleware.

Lero: The Irish Software Engineering Research Centre Science Foundation Ireland 2016
Lero is an SFI CSET (Centre for Science, Engineering and Technology). The Centre is a collaboration between a number of Irish Universities and companies and is charged with "advancing the state of the art in strategic software engineering for Evolving Critical Systems". Here at Trinity College, we are focused on investigating the issues relating to dynamic adaptation and self-management of urban-scale software.

Slice-Oriented Programming for Timely, Dynamic Service-Oriented Composition Science Foundation Ireland 2015
This project is investigating a "slice-oriented" modelling approach that combines and extends domain-specific, aspect-oriented and service-oriented modelling decomposition (and composition) techniques to achieve fine-grained service slice specifications that address different concerns (including quality of service and crosscutting concerns). Adaptation requirements and quality of service constraints such as timeliness are abstracted to first-class entities to support adaptation at runtime.
