The Simula learn Laboratory, situated simply outdoors Oslo in Norway, is rightly famed as a hugely winning examine facility, regardless of being, at purely 8 years previous, a really younger establishment. This attention-grabbing e-book tells the heritage of Simula, detailing the tradition and values which were the guiding rules of the laboratory all through its existence.

Dedicated to tackling clinical demanding situations of real social value, the laboratory undertakes very important study with long term implications in networks, computing and software program engineering, together with providing a Centre of Excellence in biomedical computing.

The textual content covers each attitude: the laboratory's history and political context, the paintings it has accomplished, its method of the schooling and improvement of its researchers, and the organisation's efforts to advertise the applying of its learn effects. the main study tasks and effects are coated in separate chapters, each one of that is preceded through a thumbnail description of the venture and the way the examine comes in handy for society. in addition to explanatory textual content, the opposite chapters characteristic interviews with significant avid gamers within the facility's heritage, either within Simula, between its collaborators, and in Norwegian society at huge.

Today, researchers are more or less unable to do anything useful if their PCs are not working. Reliable back-up solutions to all common problems4 must be available at all times. The Simula administration provides support for the researchers at the centre and it is this support function that should inform any decisions that are taken. It is the task of the administration to ensure that the research can be carried out under optimal conditions. Procedures should be kept simple, and efforts should be made not to waste other peoples’ time unnecessarily.

The corporate management of Simula, heads of the departments, subsidiaries and of the groups, should always bear in mind that Simula employs extremely welleducated and highly gifted individuals. Strategic issues should be discussed throughout the organisation and any employee who wishes to should have the opportunity to express his or her opinions at all levels. All leaders should be highly accessible and open to discussion about everything that goes on at the centre.
