Staffan TruvéSICS - Staffan Truvé is the new Managing Director of SICS and new member of ERCIM's Board of Directors. Staffan Truvé has been appointed Managing Director of SICS as of 1st July 2005. The position is his third as Managing Director within the same group: Staffan Truvé already leads the Interactive Institute as well as the umbrella organization SITI, where SICS and Interactive Institute are included together with Viktoria and S:ta Anna Institutes. Consequently he will also join ERCIM's Board of Directors.

Staffan has 20 years of experience in research and high-tech startups. His research background is in compiler technology, computer architecture and computer vision. In 1994 he co-founded CR&T (Carlstedt Research and Technology), a research and development organization in the areas of computer science and computer engineering. He is also the co-founder of Spotfire, AppGate, Pilotfish, Gatespace Telematics and CADSIM. Staffan is the chairman of Gatespace Telematics and acts as a technical/business advisor to startups, venture capital funds, universities and government agencies. Staffan is 42 years old, and holds a PhD in Computer Science from Chalmers University and a BA in Business Administration from Göteborg University. He has been a visiting Fulbright scholar at MIT and maintains a strong academic network in Sweden and in the US.

The appointment of Staffan Truvé as Managing Director takes SICS one step closer to leading the co-ordination of the four IT research institutes in Sweden.
