Hallmarks of the 'digital organization'
A team of researchers including Andreas S. Schulz has just received one of the National Science Foundation (NSF) awards supporting new Information Technology Research (ITR) projects. The research team, which also includes several researchers from Georgia Tech, received $1.2 million of funding over a 3-year period for the development of methodology and technology to support effective inter-company logistics collaboration. "Over the past five years, the ITR priority area has expanded the scope and size of the nation's research effort in the development and use of information technology," said Peter Freeman, head of NSF's directorate for computer and information science and engineering. "This year's awards, supported by all of NSF's directorates, continue to emphasize interdisciplinary opportunities and the key issues facing our society at large."
