The HARNESS consortium is a lean, well-balanced, high-profile consortium consisting of world-class, highly experienced academic and industrial research groups, and dynamic, fast-growing, and financially successful enterprises. The consortium represents the minimal, essential, and complementary group of partners, who have the knowledge, expertise, and experience to execute this ambitious project.

The consortium represents a broad demographic of the key contributors to furthering the European innovation agenda, in general, and the objectives of this call, in particular. There are three university partners (Imperial College London, EPFL, and University of Rennes 1), one research institute (ZIB), one large enterprise (SAP AG), and one small enterprise (Maxeler Technologies).
