NEC Europe Ltd. established the NEC Laboratories Europe in 1994. Today, the laboratories are located in Heidelberg, Germany South Ruislip in London, UK. Research and development functions are integrated into the same organization to shorten the time to market of cutting-edge ICT technologies. Special emphasis is placed on solutions meeting the needs of NEC's European customers. NEC Laboratories Europe collaborate with NEC’s global research organizations in Japan, China, and the US, as well as with NEC's business units.

The laboratories focus on software-oriented research and development of technologies to enable advanced solutions for society. In particular the laboratories research new communication architectures and systems applying the software defined network paradigm to next generation fixed and mobile networks. Strong security technologies to provide data privacy and dependability are indispensable ingredients of future ITC solutions. Data acquisition and analytics technologies enable innovative solutions in the areas of smart transport, smart energy and sensor-enabled smart world solutions.
The laboratories have acquired an excellent reputation in the international research community and are a recognized partner in numerous collaborative research and development projects conducted jointly with European service providers, technology vendors and academic research groups. This involves being a key partner in several projects of the European Union's Information and Communication Technologies Programme (EU ICT). Our staff also actively contributes to scientific conferences as well as standards organizations like IETF, 3GPP, BBF, ETSI, and ONF.

Our challenge is to move ideas from research prototypes into business. Collaboration with other research institutes, corporate research centers and potential users in an open innovation model, technology trials with NEC customers, as well as a customer- and market-driven research strategy, are the key ingredients to meet this challenge.
