Welcome to SPARE
We are a software engineering research group in
Lero - The Irish Software Research Centre,
primarily based at the University of Limerick and University College Dublin, Ireland.
The main research focus of our group is engineering adaptive systems that continue to satisfy their security and
privacy requirements. In addition, our group also investigates how we can engineer 'forensically-ready'
adaptive systems. Our work is funded by the Science Foundation
Ireland (SFI), the European Research Council
(ERC), and a number of industrial partners
including United Technologies Research Centre (UTRC), IBM Software Labs, and Microsoft Research.
We also collaborate closely with our strategic research partners at The Open University (UK) and the
National Institute of Informatics (Japan). A focus of this collaboration is the
Adaptive Security and Privacy
project funded by an ERC Advanced Grant.
