The Smart Card Centre was originally founded in October 2002 by Royal Holloway University of London, Vodafone and Giesecke & Devrient.
Today it receives support from a wide range of organisations, most notably Orange Labs (UK), the UK Cards Association, Transport for London and ITSO. It is a testimony to the world-wide reputation of the Information Security Group, that such major organisations chose to locate and support the Smart Card Centre at Royal Holloway.
The primary objective was to create a World-Wide Centre of Excellence for training and research in the field of Smart Cards, applications and related technologies. Over the years this has expanded into RFID, NFC, mobile devices and general embedded/implementation system security.
The Smart Card Centre aims to be open and involving so please contact us if you are
interested in participating in the seminar programme or becoming an industry Partner.
