  • SONATA - Service Programing and Orchestration for Virtualized Software Networks

    Virtualisation and software networks are a major disruptive technology for communications networks, enabling services to be deployed as software functions running directly in the network on commodity hardware. However, deploying the more complex user-facing applications and services envisioned for 5G networks presents significant technological challenges for development and deployment. SONATA addresses both issues.

  • SESAME - Small cEllS coordinAtion for Multi-tenancy and Edge services

    SESAME targets innovations around three central elements in 5G: the placement of network intelligence and applications in the network edge through Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and Edge Cloud Computing; the substantial evolution of the Small Cell concept, already mainstream in 4G but expected to deliver its full potential in the challenging high dense 5G scenarios; and the consolidation of multi-tenancy in communications infrastructures, allowing several operators/service providers to engage in new sharing models of both access capacity and edge computing capabilities.

  • FLYSEC - Optimising time-to-FLY and enhancing airport SECurity

    FLYSEC is a new H2020 Research & Innovation Action project, focusing on the sensitive topic of improving the aviation security chain.

  • EuTravel - Optimodal European Travel Ecosystem

    EuTravel aims to support the EU agenda towards an open and single market for mobility services by enabling travelers to organise a multimodal trip in accordance with their own criteria including environmental performance, providing multimodal travel service providers an effective way to deliver customised services addressing any type of specialised travel needs and facilitating fact-based EU policy making. This project will promote the creation of content, open and linked data for travellers enriching the travelling experience.

  • VITAL - VIrtualized hybrid satellite-TerrestriAl systems for resilient and fLexible future networks

    VITAL (VIrtualized hybrid satellite-TerrestriAl systems for resilient and fLexible future networks) is an ambitious project addressing the combination of Terrestrial and Satellite networks by pursuing two key innovation areas, by bringing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) into the satellite domain and by enabling Software-Defined-Networking (SDN)-based, federated resources management in hybrid SatCom-terrestrial networks.

    The VITAL project is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Research and Innovation program.

  • EU CISE 2020 - ΕU Common Information Sharing Environment 2020

    EU CISE 2020 aims to be a significant step forward along the accomplishment of the European roadmap for CISE (Common Information Sharing Environment); the project attains the widest possible experimental environment of innovative and collaborative processes between European maritime institutions.

  • GRANKIT - Grandparents and Grandchildren Keep In Touch

    This project aims to promote active ageing and intergenerational solidarity through developing an innovative ICT training course for acquiring the necessary skills in order to participate in the modern world, both for pleasure and for business. Grandparents will be professionally trained with the involvement of their grandchildren who will transfer their current knowledge on social networking. When they will acquire the necessary skills they will set up a social communication network between them.

  • SUNNY - Smart UNmanned aerial vehicle sensor Network for detection of border crossing and illegal entry

    The SUNNY project aims to contribute to EUROSUR by defining a new tool for collecting real-time information in operational scenarios. SUNNY represents a step beyond existing research projects due to the following main features:

  • T-NOVA - Network Functions as-a-Service over Virtualised Infrastructures

    T-NOVA project plans to exploit the emerging concept of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), migrating network functions originally performed by hardware elements to virtualised infrastructures, deployed as software components. T-NOVA allows operators not only to deploy virtualized Network Functions (NFs) for their own needs, but also to offer them to their customers, as value-added services. T-NOVA leverages and enhances cloud management architectures for the elastic provision and (re-) allocation of IT resources assigned to the hosting of Network Functions.

  • tranScriptorium - tranScriptorium

    tranScriptorium is a STREP of the Seventh Framework Programme in the ICT for Learning and Access to Cultural Resources challenge. tranScriptorium is planned to last from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2015.

    tranScriptorium aims to develop innovative, efficient and cost-effective solutions for the indexing, search and full transcription of historical handwritten document images, using modern, holistic Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) technology.

    tranScriptorium will turn HTR into a mature technology by addressing the following objectives:
