Research and Development (NEC Laboratories Europe GmbH)

NEC Heidelberg Logo

NEC Laboratories Europe located in Heidelberg, Germany was established in 1994 with special emphasis on solutions meeting the needs of NEC's European customers. NEC Laboratories Europe collaborates with NEC's global research organizations in Japan, China, Singapore and the United States, as well as with NEC's business units.

At NEC Laboratories Europe we focus on software-oriented research and development of technologies to enable advanced ICT-based solutions for society. Solution areas include smart cities, public transport and safety, digital health using the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as 5G and beyond communication infrastructures. We support these areas by intensive research on technologies for machine learning, automated reasoning, blockchain, IoT security, edge computing, and network virtualization and automation.

NEC Laboratories Europe has built up an excellent reputation in the international research community and is a key partner in numerous collaborative research and development projects conducted jointly with European service providers, technology vendors and early technology adopters. NEC Laboratories Europe GmbH is also a partner in several projects of the European Union's Information and Communication Technologies Research and Development Framework Programmes. We actively contribute to scientific conferences as well as standards organizations, such as 3GPP, ETSI, ONF and many others.

Our challenge is to move ideas from research prototypes into business solutions. Some key ingredients for meeting this challenge are our collaborations with external research institutes, corporate research centers and potential users in an open innovation model, as well as a customer- and market-driven research strategy including technology trials with NEC's customers.
