Gert Jervan is a professor of dependable computer systems at the Department of Computer Systems at Tallinn University of Technology. He is also a Dean at the School of Information Technologies.
He received his M.Sc. degree from Tallinn University of Technology in 1998 and Tech. Lic. and Ph. D. degrees from Linköping University (LIU), Sweden in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He was previously with the Embedded Systems Laboratory
(ESLAB) at Linköping University, Sweden
He has been a coordinator of several national and international research projects, most notably he
belonged to the management committee of the Estonian centre of excellence in research CEBE (Centre for Integrated Electronic Systems and Biomedical Engineering) and was a coordinator of the EU FP7 REGPOT project CREDES (Centre of Research Excellence in Dependable Embedded Systems).
He has been a local coordinator of several EU networks of excellence and other projects, such as EIE-Surveyor, ELLEIEC, SALEIE, KhAI-ERA, IT.EE and many others. Currently he is one of the PIs of the EU Horizon 2020 projects TUTORIAL (Twinning to Strengthen Tallinn University of Technology’s Research and Innovation Capacity in Nanoelectronics Based Dependable Cyber-Physical Systems) and IMMORTAL (Integrated Modelling, Fault Management, Verification and Reliable Design Environment for Cyber-Physical Systems).
He has been serving of the evaluation committees of the Estonian Science Foundation, Estonian Research Council, EC Directorate-General for Research & Innovation. He is regular reviewer for many journals and program committee member of several conferences. He has organized many international workshops and conferences, most recently EWME 2014 and ReCoSoC 2016.
He is also one of the authors of the Strategic Plans of Tallinn University of Technology 2011-2015 and 2016-2020.
