  • ENFORA - Innovation Transfer of DEDALOS project, for teaching English as a second language to deaf people, whose first language is the Sign Language, via e-learning tools

    It is a common remark among the professionals in the fields of special education, that despite of the last years tremendous evolution of computer communication networks, Internet and its services and facilities, little has been done towards the direction of usage and penetration of these services within the domain of Linguistic Training for the Deaf people. The absence of material in the Sign Language and the difficulties of Sign Language adaptation into the existing e-learning systems are the main reasons.

  • IMPACT - Improving Access to Text

    The IMPACT project brings together fifteen national and regional libraries, research institutions and commercial suppliers - all centres of competence with unequalled experience of large-scale text digitisation processes and technologies. The project will let them share their know-how and best practices, develop innovative tools to enhance the capabilities of OCR engines and the accessibility of digitised text and lay down the foundations for the mass-digitisation programmes that will take place over the next decade.

  • EMERGE - Emergency Monitoring and Prevention

    Delayed calls of emergency medical services (e.g. in case of physical or mental disorders resulting from strokes or falls) lead to increased hospitalisation and movement of elderly people into nursing homes. This decreases their quality of life unnecessarily and causes considerable costs. Due to demographical changes in Europe, this situation is expected to get worse in the future. This problem is addressed in EMERGE by supporting elderly people with innovative emergency monitoring and prevention. Humans are bio-psycho-social beings, whose character is to follow typical behaviour.

  • ENTHRONE-II - End-to-End QoS through Integrated Management of Content, Networks and Terminals

    The provision of an integrated management based on the end-to-end QoS over heterogeneous networks and terminals is considered to be a key element for the successful mass market provision of audio-visual services, that would produce revenues for the content/service providers and network operators. The ENTHRONE project proposes an integrated management solution which covers an entire audio-visual service distribution chain, including content generation and protection, distribution across networks and reception at user terminals.

  • POLITIMO - A system for processing, managment and access to the content of valuable books and handwritten documents. GSRT/Ministry of Development
  • IMOSAN - Integrated Multi-layer Optimization in broadband DVB-S.2 SAtellite Networks

    The IMOSAN project proposes an integrated management solution that allows optimum usage of the satellite spectrum, which spans across three layers: physical, network and service. This multi-layer optimization will be based on the capabilities of DVB-S.2 standard and will be performed in an integrated and coherent way for all layers, using a Satellite Resource Management System (SRMS). Adaptive coding and modulation (ACM) features of DVB-S.2 standard will be exploited, to provide optimization in time varying operating environments.

  • SEARCH3D - Cognitive search and retrieval of 3D graphical models GSRT/Ministry of Development
  • OntoSum - Ontology Management and Use to Support Summarization

    The OntoSum project is funded by the Greek government and supports three PhD students working on the following subjects:

  • LIAISON - LocatIon bAsed servIceS for the enhancement of wOrking enviroNment

    The LIAISON project will turn emergent technologies, applications and services into actual business cases in order to allow key European actors to fulfill in a competitive manner the needs of workers in their daily life, for seamless and personalized location services across heterogeneous network. It will provide end-to-end Location Based Services, applications and solutions and will contribute to new business models to secure the sustainability of the services and applications.
