Curriculum Vitea

Before joining ISCM, Bart Nieuwenhuis was part-time full professor at the Architecture and Services of Network Applications (ASNA) group within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science (EEMCS) of the University of Twente. He supervised PhD students and publishes scientific articles and conference papers on services provisioning platforms and middleware technologies for Quality of Service and Context Awareness. He joined the ASNA group in Twente after a period of five years at the University of Groningen, where he was tele-informatics professor at the Computer Science Faculty. Before starting his own company, he worked more than 20 years for KPN Research, the R&D facility of KPN, the telephony and Internet market leader in The Netherlands. He served as manager of R&D departments and Head of Strategy of KPN Research. Bart Nieuwenhuis worked on behalf of KPN for the European Institute for Research and Strategic Studies in Telecommunications (EURESCOM) in Heidelberg and was leader of various international, cooperative projects of European public network operators. Bart Nieuwenhuis holds a PhD in Computer Science and a MSc (cum laude) and BSc in Electrical Engineering, all from the University of Twente.
