A system developed by Lancaster University's Computing Department and NTT DoCoMo Euro-Labs was one of the winners in a competition held at the 2nd European NFC developers summit in Monaco.

The project uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to allow mobile phone handsets and public information screens to share display space, overcoming the screen size limitations of mobile phone displays.

Robert Hardy and Enrico Rukzio from the Computing Department at InfoLab21 and Matthias Wagner and Massimo Paolucci from NTT DoCoMo Euro-Labs won first place in the research track and The Most Innovative NFC Research Project of the Year 2008.

The winners were selected from a total of 20 finalists and over 50 entries from 21 countries.
