Kevin Doolin

Kevin Doolin is the Chief Operations Officer (COO) and Director of European Union at Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG www.tssg.org)

In his role as COO, Kevin is responsible for the day-to-day oversight of the seven individual research units at TSSG, which he coordinates alongside the Unit Managers. He is also responsible for the strategic approach and development of each unit, including but not limited to the key cross-unit decisions, assisting in commercial, research and proposal development of each unit.

As Director of EU Programmes Kevin plays a key role in driving the Units and individuals to get involved in EU applied research and driving proposal strategies for all relevant EU calls.

Kevin’s area of expertise is Pervasive Computing, which is the forerunner to ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). Kevin has been involved in this space since he joined TSSG in 2004. Kevin has already coordinated a number of key EU projects in this space, for example PERSIST (www.ict-persist.eu) which deals with establishing personal smart spaces and integrating these with other smart spaces such as the smart office, smart home, etc.

His most recent project was the €15M EU flagship project “SOCIETIES” (www.ict-societies.eu), which closed in April 2014 and received significant praise from expert scientific reviewers. Kevin describes the project, “SOCIETIES focuses on bridging the gap between pervasive and social computing, and enables the establishment of dynamically formed networks of people and things which can in turn be offered personalised mobile services”.
