NEC partners with Federal government on ICT innovation

The agreement will see NEC share information and expertise on ICT matters with the Department

NEC Corporation has signed an agreement with the Department of Broadband, Communications and Digital Economy (DBCDE), to share information and expertise on ICT matters.

The two have initially worked together across areas such as health and aged care, and intelligent transport systems (ITS).

“The DBCDE welcomes the opportunity to work with NEC, a leader in R&D and innovation in Australia, to capitalise on the drive towards the digital economy,” Senator Stephen Conroy, said in a statement.

NEC president, Dr Nobuhiro Endo, said it was pleased partner with the Australian Federal Government on significant programs to place ICT innovation at the forefront of improved service delivery across all sectors of the economy.

NEC Australia managing director, Alan Hyde, added the company was working on programs to deliver a new paradigm of ageing-in-place for the elderly, including working with Research Centre for Computers, Communication and Social Innovation (RECCSI) at Latrobe University.

“NEC looks forward to collaborating with the Department, to improve outcomes in aged care and urban transportation,” Hyde said.

In October last year, Intel signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Federal Government to share research and advice on the National Broadband Network.
