Current and Past Projects
The following lists gives a concise overview of projects that prof. Lagendijk has been involved in since 2000.

  • Project leader of the STW/Sentinels project Kindred Spirits.
  • Trusted Healthcare Services (TheCS) (2012-2015). A COMMIT project that researches domain specific identity management techniques and validation techniques for the healthcare sector.
  • Extreme Wireless Distributed Systems (EWiDS) (2011-2015). A COMMIT research project with the focus of protocols, data processing, and privacy in extremely large wireless distributed sensor networks.
  • Open Access to Semantic Media (OpenSEM) (2010-2011). An EIT ICTLabs funded initiative to stimulate open access via a portal for open innovation in semantic media.
  • Kindred Spirits (2010-2013). A national STW/Sentinels research project with the focus of improving privacy in online social networks.
  • PetaMedia (2008-2011). Peer-to-peer tagged multimedia. A european network of excellence that brings together mulitmedia content analysis, user-based tagging, and peer-to-peer systems.
  • Speed (2007-2009). An EU FET project, focussing on signal processing in the encrypted domain. The objective was to research signal processing and cryptographic techniques and algorithms that make possible the processing of signals in encrypted form.
  • Freeband I-Share (2004-2008). A project of the BSIK program Freeband. Sharing resources in virtual communities. Our focus is on video compression (multiple description coding, distributed source coding) and content identification (fingerprinting, watermarking) in distributed systems such as peer-to-peer file sharing system and mobile networks.
  • CACTUS: Context aware communications, terminal and user (2003-2006). A BSIK project that focussed on technological and usability aspects of human-computer and computer-network interaction with personalized, intelligent and context-aware wearable devices in ad-hoc wireless environments.
  • Certimark: Certification of watermarking techniques (2000-2002). A EU/STREP project focusing on technologies and standards for certifying digital image and video watermarks.
  • UbiCom: Ubiquitous Communications (1997-2002). A multidisciplinary research project that investigated 3G/4G communications in the early days, with specific interest for mobile augmented reality.
  • SMASH and STORit (1995-2000). Two EU ACTS project on end-to-end solutions for the delivery of multimedia services. One of the first EU projects in which the subjects of content-based image/video retrieval and multimedia watermarking were investigated.
  • VcDemo. Image and Video Compression Learning Tool.
