SRDC - Software Research And Development Center


The Software Research and Development Center (SRDC) was established by the Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) in October 1991 and is operating under the Faculty of Engineering in METU.

The aims of this centre are twofold: to lead large-scale software research and development projects and to foster international co-operation. SRDC is involved in a number of research and development projects supported by the government, industrial companies, international organizations and the European Commission. METU-SRDC has expertise on Semantic Web Technologies, Web Services, Ontologies, P2P networks, Agent Technologies, Semantic Interoperability, e-Health, Sensor Networks and GRID Systems.

The mission of SRDC is to combine knowledge, hard work and enthusiasm in the areas of electronic business and Internet technologies to be able to contribute to the research and development activities in Turkey, and in EU by exploiting the outstanding young potential of Turk ey.
