SMART4ALL (H2020)

The EU-funded SMART4ALL project will develop a new paradigm to uncover the so-called hidden innovation treasures in Southeast Europe (SEE). Specifically, it will develop an active network of digital innovation hubs (DIHs) with the aim of supporting academics, startups, SMEs and mid-caps entering the digitisation era. The project will introduce the concept of marketplace-as-a-service (MaaS), which can serve as a one-stop-smart-shop offering tools, services and platforms based on open-source technology. Overall, the project will work to enhance regionality for community building, synchronising European and national development strategies to bring new products and business ideas originated from SEE to the market.

FED4FIRE: Federation for Fire Plus (H2020) - 2 Projects

By leveraging resources from Fed4Fire testbeds, the PICASSO project will experiment solution that enable ICN (Information-Centric Networks) based edge services in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) by combining into a platform several trends in edge computing namely the ICN, the containerization of services exemplified by Docker, novel service placement algorithms and the increasing availability of energy efficient but still powerful hardware at user premises (Raspberry Pi, mini-PCs, and enhanced home gateways). The project results will be the evaluation of PICASSO platform on edge devices that advances the scientific understanding and business opportunities in citywide WMNs.

BRIDGE - Bridging Integrity in Higher Education

The project seeks to develop new, open and innovative educational resources to properly address issues of academic integrity in research, business and society among master and doctoral students, and their supervisors. The BRIDGE project seeks to develop new innovative educational resources to properly address issues of academic integrity in research, business and society among postgraduate and doctoral students, as well as their mentors. Considering that research malpractices are mainly done by graduate and doctoral students in higher education institutions, when they usually start researching, the primary effort for academic and research integrity should be directed towards them as future researchers who are at the beginning of their careers.
