  • BioASQ - A challenge on large-scale biomedical semantic indexing and question answering

    BioASQ will push for a solution to the information access problem of biomedical experts by setting up a challenge on biomedical semantic indexing and question answering (QA). Biomedical knowledge is dispersed in hundreds of heterogeneous knowledge sources and databases; many of them are connected on the Linked Open Data cloud. Biomedical experts, on the other hand, are in constant need of highly specialized information, which they cannot easily obtain. To address their needs, an information system needs to "understand'' the data and answer efficiently the experts' questions.

  • HIPOW - Protection of Critical Infrastructure against High Power Microwave Threats

    The main objective of HIPOW is to improve the current European situation regarding awareness of NNEMP/HPM threats and the adequacy of protection of critical infrastructures against the threat by demonstrating to policy makers the seriousness of the deficiencies regarding the current situation, defining and topic “SEC-2011.2.2-2: Protection of Critical Infrastructures (structures, platforms and networks) against Electromagnetic Attacks”. Recommendations derived from HIPOW will be compatible with existing techniques and standards already used for other threats, for example lightning.

  • HIT-GATE - Heterogeneous Interoperable Transportable GATEway for First-Responders

    The need: Public Safety (PS) bodies & First Responders (FR) often employ heterogeneous communication technologies e.g. Analogue Personal Mobile Radio (PMR), TETRA, WIMAX etc. As of this constraint, FR units from different bodies cannot interconnect at the site of the accident when a complex crisis calls for cooperative actions (e.g. fire accident on a vessel inside the port ). The same constraint applies in case of cross-border crisis e.g. forest mega-fires.

  • PACT - Public perception of security and privacy: Assessing knowledge, Collecting evidence, Translating research into action

    PACT is a 36 month collaborative project, which aims 1) to assess existing knowledge about the relation between security and privacy and the role played by trust and concern; 2) to collect empirical evidence through a panEuropean survey on the public perception of the relation between privacy, fundamental rights, and security; 3) to analyze the main factors that affect public assessment of the security and privacy implications of given security technology.

  • ORTHO-eMAN - A web-based e-training platform for Extended Human Motion Investigation in Orthopedics

    The project seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine, by creating a new e-learning environment for human motion analysis. For this reason, the project aims to offer to orthopedic doctors and engineers interested in medical field, a common learning tool, with interdisciplinary approaches using learning methodologies and experience from previous EU project, e-MedI – Virtual Medical School.

  • NOMAD - Policy Formulation and Validation through non moderated crowdsourcing

    The ability to leverage the vast amount of user-generated content for supporting governments in their political decisions requires new ICT tools that will be able to analyze and classify the opinions expressed on the informal Web, or stimulate responses, as well as to put data from sources as diverse as blogs, online opinion polls and government reports to an effective use.

  • GERYON - Next Generation Technology Independent Interoperability of Emergency Services

    GERYON proposes an innovative emergency inter-networking system capable of connecting existing irst responder
    communication systems and enabling the integration of next generation mobile networks by  defining technology independent standardized interfaces and autonomic configuration and adaptation techniques under the umbrella of
    IMS.

  • USEFIL - Unobtrusive Smart Environments for Independent Living

    The number of elderly citizens in EU as well as the total number of seniors living alone is growing leading to increased demands placed on society’s care and medical services. Although ICT technologies can increase safety, independence and quality of life of elderly people while staying at home the adoption rates of such advancements show that these are still undesired by the majority of the population. USEFIL project intends to cope with this gap proposing advanced but affordable in-home unobtrusive monitoring and web communication solutions.

  • ACRIMAS - Aftermath Crisis Management System-of-systems Demonstration

    Crisis management (CM) is a core capability of modern societies, but a highly diversified and heterogeneous area. Current. CM in the EU can be regarded as a “system-of-systems” integrating diverse organisations and components with different cultures, policies and assets, and various stakeholders and procurement schemes. ACRIMAS understands the term “system-of-systems” that it incorporates technology, procedures, organisational concepts, and human factors.
