The Knowledge Reuse Group is involved in several International, European and National projects as provided in the web page (under look-and-feel changes at the moment). One of the most recent project finished in 2016 is the CRYSTAL Project (CRYSTAL - CRitical sYSTem engineering AcceLeration) financed by ARTEMIS JU and MINECO.

The ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking project CRYSTAL (CRitical sYSTem engineering AcceLeration) takes up the challenge to establish and push forward an Interoperability Specification (IOS) and a Reference Technology Platform (RTP) as a European standard for safety-critical systems.

CRYSTAL is driven by real-world industrial use cases from the automotive, aerospace, rail and health sector and builds on the results of successful predecessor projects like CEASAR, SAFE, iFEST, MBAT on European and national level.

Creating and establishing a new standard on a large scale in an already consolidated market cannot be achieved by individual organizations. With a budget of more than 82 million Euro and 71 partners from 10 different European countries, CRYSTAL has the critical mass to accomplish this endeavor. The project consortium is made up of participants from all relevant stakeholders, including OEMs, suppliers, tool vendors and academia.

UC3M participated in the core research and development for the Aerospace domain providing its knowhow on Ontologies, Indexing systems, Retrieval systems, Natural Language Processing techniques and innovative quality metrics for the assessment of Requirements. It improved the Requirements Engineering Process by including an innovative quality assessment in the CCC (Correctness, Completeness and Consistency).
