Common projects

eFactory: European Connected Factory Platform for Agile Manufacturing

The eFactory project realises a federated smart factory ecosystem by initially interlinking four smart factory platforms, from the FoF-11-2016 cluster, through an open and interoperable Data Spine. The federation of the 4 base platforms is complemented by industrial platforms, collaboration tools and smart factory systems, specifically selected to support connected factories in lot-size-one manufacturing. more

EMBS – Energy Management Building Set

The EMBS project develops an innovative, integrated control and planning system for demand-response and optimization of multi-utility/-energy devices and installations. more

MMAssist II

Assistance systems in production in the context of human – machine cooperation more

MICO – Media in Context

Open Source technology for cross-media analysis for multi media resources. more

EAGLE – EnhAnced Government LEarning

Public administrations (PA) need to cope with various challenges: new regulations, an aging workforce and the need for adopting their new technologies. Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) represents thus a sensible option notably for rural local governments (RLG) that need to keep up with such changing environments, but do have limited access to training courses. From interviews of a pre-study with RLG in 5 European countries we learnt that obstacles are mainly connected with a lack of training plans in work processes. There are deficiencies in communication and collaboration skills despite regular use of computer and mobile devices. more

IDIRA – Interoperability of data and procedures in large-scale multinational disaster response actions

System of technologies and guidelines for optimal resource planning and operations across national and organisational borders in case of disasters. more

MOME – Monitoring and Measurement Cluster

Platform for knowledge and tool exchange and for co-ordination of activities in the field of IP monitoring and measurement more

INTERMON – High Quality QoS-Monitoring

Quality parameters of different ISP domains are visualised and via simulation optimised. more

NetQOS Policy based Management of Heterogeneous Networks for Guaranteed QoS

The main focus is on an (widely) autonomous management approach with the objective of providing enhanced quality of service (QoS) and resource utilization in varying operational environments more

LIVE – Staging of Media Events

LIVE attempts to radically improve on the linear approach to TV broadcasting of live sporting events by delivering digital technologies and content formats that enable viewers to shape their own personal and highly interactive viewing experience. more

PRISM – PRIvacy-aware Secure Monitoring

Passive monitoring of communication networks is relevant for running these networks and the detection of cyber attacks. The PRISM project developed a two-tier privacy-compliant integrated monitoring architecture. more
