  • April 2015, we obtained an H2020 grant, with a consortium of 3 industrial and 3 research partners. The Lakhsmi project aims to develop new bio-inspired flow sensing technology which will be used for hydrodynamic imaging and lateral line perception.
  • March 2015, we obtained, together with Dominique Stutzmann the NWO project HIMANIS, HIstorical MANuscript Indexing for user-controlled Search in order to test our methods for word retrieval on the French royal chancery (14th-15th c.), tackling new problems in image processing, word segmentation and allographic variation
  • January 2015, we obtained an ECSEL/H2020 grant, as a member of a consortium of 47 industrial and research partners, concerning big data, machine learning and preventive maintenance in (robotic) manufacturing lines: project Mantis
  • Target - a mass-storage + high-performance e-Science project, implementing our findings in historical (handwritten) manuscript retrieval in multiple collections
  • January 2014, an international NWO/Digging into Data project was granted titled "Global Currents" in which Stanford University and McGill University participate. The application domain is e-Humanities and our contribution to the project is the induction of semantics from visual patterns, shapes and their occurrence on historical (handwritten) documents, using pattern recognition and machine learning.
  • In 2012, we started a project in the computer-based dating of mediaeval handwritten manuscripts, in a Dutch NWO project "MPS - The Mediaeval Paleographic Scale", together with paleographer prof. dr. Jan Burgers from the Huygensinstituut, The Hague. We will use models and methods collected in the area of writer identification.
