SHIELD

The SHIELD project proposes a universal solution for dynamically establishing and deploying virtual security infrastructures into ISP and corporate networks. SHIELD builds on the huge momentum of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), as currently standardised by ETSI, in order to virtualise security appliances into virtual Network Security Functions (vNSFs), to be instantiated within the network infrastructure using NFV technologies and concepts, effectively monitoring and filtering network traffic in a distributed manner.

SEMIoTICS

SEMIoTICS main scope aims to develop a pattern-driven framework, built upon existing IoT platforms, to enable and guarantee secure and dependable actuation and semi-autonomic behaviour in IoT/IIoT applications. The SEMIoTICS framework will support cross-layer intelligent dynamic adaptation, including heterogeneous smart objects, networks and clouds. To address the complexity and scalability needs within horizontal and vertical domains, SEMIoTICS will develop and integrate smart programmable networking and semantic interoperability mechanisms.

DSSC

The DSSC Research Training Programme is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND action developed at the University of Groningen that will train 10 PhD students for 4 years to be part of the next generation of interdisciplinary data and complexity experts. The research areas of the DSSC COFUND Doctoral Programme are: Adaptive Models & Big Data; Complex Systems & Engineering and Advanced Instrumentation & Big Data.

The 4-year Doctoral Programme offers:

CryptoCloud

Privacy for the Cloud will have a huge societal impact since it will revolutionize the trust model: users will be able to make safe use of outsourced storage, namely for personal, financial and medical data, without having to worry about failures or attacks of the server. It will also have a strong economic impact, conferring a competitive advantage on Cloud providers implementing these tools.

FeatureCloud

FeatureCloud is a transformative, pan-European research collaboration and AI-development project which implements a software toolkit for substantially reducing cyber risks to healthcare infrastructure by employing the worldwide first “privacy by design” approach.

The final product of FeatureCloud will be characterized by three key strengths:

SERUMS

The Serums Project deals with security and privacy of future-generation healthcare systems, putting patients at the centre of future healthcare provision, enhancing their personal care and maximising the quality of treatment they receive.

SecureHospitals.eu

The SecureHospitals.eu project seeks to raise awareness on risks and protection opportunities, setup training schemes and the initiate training sessions for IT staff working in hospitals. Through several training approaches, the project will boost the level of training in cybersecurity in Europe, improve the knowledge of staff and in turn contribute to decreased vulnerabilities against cyberthreats and increased patient trust and safety.

STAMP

Leveraging advanced research in automatic test generation, STAMP aims at pushing automation in DevOps one step further through innovative methods of test amplification. It will reuse existing assets (test cases, API descriptions, dependency models), in order to generate more test cases and test configurations each time the application is updated. Acting at all steps of development cycle, it will bring amplification services at unit level, configuration level and production stage.

PrEstoCloud

PrEstoCloud targets a dynamic and distributed software architecture that manages cloud and fog resources proactively, while reaching the extreme edge of the network for an efficient real-time BigData processing.

OPENREQ

As software projects continue to grow in size and importance, the need for intelligent, diverse, personalised, and sustainable requirements grows as well. Creating and maintaining such requirements demands tool support beyond what is currently offered. OpenReq satisfies these needs.

Objective
The goal of OpenReq is to build an intelligent recommendation and decision system for community-driven require­ments engineering. OpenReq recommends, prioritises, and visualises requirements using novel techniques developed at leading research institutes.
