Dominik Šišejković wins HiPEAC Technology Transfer Award 2020
2020 marks the sixth edition of the HiPEAC Tech Transfer Awards. This year, Dominik Šišejković received the award for successfully transferring "a scalable logic locking framework for hardware integrity protection and its application to a RISC-V processor" to the industrial partner HENSOLDT Cyber GmbH. This framework offers the first tool to efficiently protect silicon-proven designs in an industrial setting.
HiPEAC's Tech Transfer Awards recognize successful examples of technology transfer, which covers technology licensing, providing dedicated services or creating a new company, for example. In addition to a certificate, first-time winners are awarded the sum of €1,000 for the team that developed the technology.
For the purposes of the awards, technology transfer is defined as a contractually documented joint- or privately funded academia-industry project or technology licence agreement, with the goal of bringing a concrete research result into industrial practice. All applications are evaluated by an internal technology transfer committee.
