About RECOCAPE
Software Engineering Competence Center (SECC) is one of the key players in the ICT sector in Egypt. It was inaugurated in 2001 by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) to transform and promote the software and ICT industry in Egypt. It was embodied in the organizational structure of the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) in 2005. SECC has taken the mandate of increasing Egypt’s competency in recent technologies as Service-Oriented Architecture, Enterprise Service Bus, Semantic Web, Model-Driven Development, and Embedded Ubiquitous Computing. The aim is to bridge the gap between the technologies needed to overcome the economical-social-environmental challenges and the current existing technologies.

Hence, SECC of Egypt, TECNALIA of Spain, VTT of Finland, and UNIBO of Italy formed capable, integrated consortium and proposed the RECOCAPE project in response to the FP7-INCO-2011-6 Call. TECNALIA is the largest research and technology organization in Spain and the fifth in Europe, VTT is the largest research and technology organization in Northern Europe, and University of Bologna (UNIBO) is the reputable, oldest university in the western world. The project duration is 2 years starting from November 1st, 2011.

The objectives are:
  1. Developing SECC’s strategic technology plan
  2. Developing and delivering training modules to build competency in Service-Oriented Architecture, Enterprise Service Bus, Semantic Web, Model-Driven Development, and Embedded Ubiquitous Computing
  3. Setting up joint relevant experiments in the above relevant technologies
  4. Exchanging SECC staff with TECNALIA to work on FP7 proposal preparation and related running projects
  5. Disseminating knowledge through organizing key events, as the EuroMed SPI, to involve local stakeholders and generate regional impact
  6. Exploiting results through implementing cluster project involving local ICT businesses as per their needs to receive early verification and validation of project results
