IoT systems today tend to be built around the concept of IoT/cloud convergence, integrating heterogeneous data streams within cloud infrastructures, and thus benefiting from the scalability, performance and capacity of the cloud. This approach is very efficient for some IoT applications such as big data processing problems. However, these architectures promote a centralized data collection and processing approach, which introduces several limitations in terms of supported applications and business models that they enable.
The main goal of M-Sec project is to empower IoT stakeholders to develop, deploy and operate novel IoT applications based on a scalable highly decentralized paradigm, which facilitates incentivized peer-to-peer interactions between objects and people. The project will explore semantically interoperable interactions between people/objects according to a given social context, beyond their simple peer-to-peer information exchange and internetworking. Overall, the M-Sec paradigm will enable the introduction and implementation of specific classes of applications and services that are not efficiently supported by state-of-the-art architectures.
The M-Sec project will deliver a set of concrete and added value main results:

The SOCCRATES project is conducting an elaborate series of webinars to share its vision and insights with interested audiences. The first 5 webinars were centered around the SOCCRATES platform components and took place between October 2020 and June 2021. The second series will run until June of 2022 and address results achieved at the (Mnemonic, Vattenfall and Shadowserver) pilot sites.
The European Commission puts a great emphasis on the twin transition to a green and digital economy as the way forward for Europe.
In many sectors, SMEs can use enabling technologies to redesign their operations and become green(er). Standards are fundamental for sustainable technology as they provide reliable, consistent building blocks that can be universally understood and adopted. These building blocks aid in promoting compatibility and interoperability and speed up time-to-market.
