was

esta
blished by the
Government of

Republic of Belarus in 2006 as a specialized organization in the
field of automatic identification
technologies and e
-
business
. It
is a dynamic
ally
growing

company
which

actively collaborat
es

with leading academic and industrial
organizations in Belarus.


Competence

of the Centre:

• Develop
ment

and implement
ation of

automated information
-
analytical
sys
tems in the
field of article numbering, bar and

ra
dio frequency identification
,

as
well as in
e
-
business
;

• Provision of article numbering and automatic identification

services
;

• Maintain
ing of

a

national depository

for identification codes of
goods (in t
he

481 segment)

marked by
bar
and
RFID
codes in accordance with international
rules and standards
;


R&D

the
area

of

numbering and automatic identification systems, and
coordination of

these activities carried

out
by scientific
organizations

and
compani
es,

both private and public, in

the
country;


S
tandardization in the field of automatic identification and e
-
business.


Infrastructure and cooperation with other organizations
:


The
Center

is a co
-
founder and principal partner of the Association of Autom
atic
Identification GS1 Belarus.

Together
with
t
he Belarusian State University
it has
created

a
L
aboratory

for
implementing the
key projects in
RFID technologies and

carrying out R&D
.

Jointly

with the State Committee on Standardization of Belarus
,

the Na
tional
Technical Committee for the Identification
has be
e

in

the Centre,
operating since 2008, whose main task is the

develop
ment of guidelines and state
standards
in the field of automatic identification

of services and goods

in

alignment
wit
h international standards in force
.


Th

certified
by State Standard (accreditation certificate №BY/1
12 02.1.0509 to 09.07.2007).
This laboratory
test
s

the quality of bar codes. It also covers up and

record
s
violations

producers

may do while labeling and delivering
goods

with bar codes at
the
po
int
s of sale as well as
controls the legality of

identification numbers (bar
codes) usage on the territory of the republic.

al conferences on
topics related to

the Centre
’s

works.

Within the

f
ramework of European initiative

Centre
has
won the competition and received

logistical support from the Orga
nizing
Committee (until 2012) in

searching for

Areas of interest with
in

ICT Work Programme 2011
-
2012:

Challenge 1


Pervasive and Trusted Network and Service Infra
structures

Objective 1.3

focuses on architectures and systems for the interconnection of sensors, actuators
and embedded computational and intelligent elements connected to the Internet and other
relevant networks. These architectures provide a consistent
integration and interoperability
framework for the massively heterogeneous environments that have appeared so far through
developments framed by vertical sectors. They will offer the identification, self
-
configuration,
self
-
healing and autonomic properties

needed for appropriate reliability, privacy, security, real
-
time response and governance of these 'smart environments, whilst making possible business
scenarios based on dynamic access to "smart" resources.

Objective 1.2
-

software, services and cloud co
mputing technologies will focus on technologies
specific to the networked distributed dimension of software and the distributed access to services
and data. This includes support for mobility, massive scalability, verification and validation of
software
-
ba
sed services, self
-
management etc.
C
loud computing technologies such as virtualized
infrastructures and energy efficiency issues, platform management aspects like data consistency
and protection, and inter
-
cloud
-
operability

are i
ncluded
as well
. As such, t
his objective is
complemented by work on service
-
oriented architectures, service discovery and composition that
is now addressed under the Future Internet PPP.

Challenge 7


ICT
for

enterprises

and

production/PPP Factories of Future

Objective 7.1

Smart
Factories: Agile manufacturing and customisation covers novel process
automation, systems and tools for an integrated control and optimisation of factory assets. It also
addresses intelligent cooperative robotic systems and their programming to support fle
xible,
small batch and craft manufacturing as well as novel lasers and laser
-
based material processing
systems. It finally covers new metrology tools and methods for managing large
-
scale
manufacturing information in real
-
time.

Objective 7.2

Manufacturing s
olutions for new ICT products will contribute to establish the
bases for, and demonstrate the feasibility of, low
-
cost, high volume and high throughput
manufacturing processes for Organic Large Area Electronics (OLAEs) and Organic Photonics.
Research will

focus on the main manufacturing roadblocks such as patterning technologies,
improvement of material parameters, process stability and control, and architectures to cut
production costs, and will include quality control, testing and validation elements.
St
andardisation issues will also be addressed.

Objective 7.3

Virtual factories and enterprises will support collaborative and adaptive virtual
enterprise environments based on increased business intelligence and enriched knowledge and
asset management tool
s. They should allow for distributed and global supply chains, production,
logistics, product lifecycle management as well as sales and after sales operations. These tools
should support innovation across the value chain and enable new business models leve
raging
integrated product/service systems.

Objective 7.4
Digital factories: Manufacturing design & product lifecycle management will
address the development of interoperable solutions for complex systems manufacturing by
bringing together under a common o
bjective disparate European competence in digital
manufacturing (modelling, simulation, visualisation, etc). Research work will address the early
stages of manufacturing through computer
-
assisted prototyping and testing to reduce the need for
physical pro
totyping and testing. The focus will be on advanced engineering platforms that
enable information sharing of product
-
relevant knowledge across different players of the value
chain, on simulation tools and programming tools for massive parallelisation of in
dustrial codes
and on interoperable models and virtual prototyping and testing environments enabling the use of
various aspects of design and engineering.
