The core area of our activity is in the so-called thematic domain “Information and Society Technologies”. Kpeople participated the following projects:
H2020 – DRS 11 – STORM – 700191
STORM emphasises the use of eco-innovative, cost-effective, collaborative methodologies, novel predictive models and improved non-invasive, non-destructive diagnosis methods
STORM creates a new innovative set of processes and tools, useful for heritage sites, organisations, governments and citizens across Europe. By making the processes user focused and citizen centred, STORM brings together wider awareness of protection and prevention than ever before. Preventive action on the conservation of historic structures, emergency measures (to mitigate natural or climate change caused disasters) and a network of shared knowledge and tools among all European partners, bring a valuable contribution that enables to define future policies to be adopted to mitigate climate changes effects. In particular, STORM aims at defining, developing and assessing a technological integrated framework providing eco-innovative, cost-effective and collaborative methodologies to support all the involved stakeholders to better act in the prevention (to mitigate the effect of climate phenomena), intervention (when a disaster occurs) and in the policies proposal phases
STORM introduces an integrated framework and a platform providing tools and services both at macro level to give a global view of the entire value chain and at specific level to promote the improvement of specific processes for protection, intervention and prevention addressing European cultural patrimony against natural hazards.
The project has a widespread multidisciplinary approach involving all stakeholders, with trials in 5 sites featuring different profiles and risks, including some of the most relevant European Cultural Heritage, in Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, Portugal and Turkey
STORM offers an international and multiform support to Entities engaged in the safeguard of Cultural Heritage regarding the possibility to adopt a trans-local collaborative approach for advancing innovation processes affecting the resilience of natural hazards. Improvement of STORM innovation capacity could be described as: processes innovation, technology innovation and service innovation upon existing processes related to three identified areas: Prevention, Intervention and Government in a holistic matrix approach.
Based on the collaboration between civil servants, public authorities, citizens and business, the CLIPS project develops a new approach to the delivery of public services through the use of the cloud. Its principle goal is to provide a framework that can be used for the implementation of cloud based public services which seeks to overcome major issues associated with cloud adoption notable in architecture design and security. The definition and the implementation of new services follows a mash-up approach, to develop an ecosystem template (methodology and tool kit) where services are defined specifically for the benefit of a municipality, that can be reused across the EU. Based on a fictional scenario of a family moving from one member state to another and the associated complexities that this involves, the project seeks to demonstrate how cloud services could be used through the delivery of five pilots in five cities: Bremerhaven (DE), Lecce (IT), Novi Sad (RS), Santander (ES), Stockport (UK).
ICT PSP 325141 – CROSS
CROSS focuses on nurturing an innovation ecosystem that generates digital services and applications making use of information generated by users in the smart city environment. CROSS recognises unexploited opportunities for services and applications in the field of non-monetary economy, where new needs and practices are emerging, and where a new sector of the digital single market has the potential for a sustainable, inclusive and smart growth. Sample activity areas that are considered by CROSS for piloting are:
1. Mutual service communities for assistance to elderly people;
2. Communities for social inclusion of immigrates;
3. Learning communities for support to school dropouts and low culture people;
4. Communities of volunteers assisting persons with disabilities.
eTEN 046257 – MAPid
Mobile Adaptive Procedure (MAP) is a complete set of flexible services to facilitate the work for civil servants in providing shortcuts to common practices, one stop shop and procedures. The service is provided through the extensive use of semantic analysis of users talk. These concepts can be fully adapted to services such as emergency procedures, human resources or administrative procedure management with the objective of simplifying procedures. The MAP Initial Deployment phase focuses on boosting the efficiency of the business processes.
eTEN-029453 – PHARMACLICK
The objective of the Pharmaclick project is to offer a remote pharmaceutical assistance service by the use of specific “Pharmaclick-points” (designed by Pininfarina) that in-clude an automatic storage for main prescriptions, a videoconference device and basic telemedicine devices to collect physiological parameters. Main features of the service are its round-the-clock availability and its delivery, irrespective of the distance between the Pharmaclick system and the pharmacist providing support to the user.
eTen 029332 – E-POLLid
ePoll aims at implementing a remote polling system which simplifies the voting process through the use of innovation technologies and makes it accessible to all, including disabled people. This project has been validated the market in France, Italy and United Kingdom. e-Poll is now ready to start deployment involving a large number of citizens (between 3.5 and 7 million citizens). The objective is the introduction of a defined business model based on the project financing approach.
eTEN 517423 – MAP
Following the positive conclusion of the IST 34001 project (see below), this eTen project carries out a market validation phase through pilots in Italy, Sweden, Poland and Hungary.
eTen 510848 – E-POLL
The E-Poll IST project (21109, see below) has been a very succesfull story. This eTen project has carried out a market validation phase in France, Italy and Hungary to verify the possible path, and business plan, to reach the market.
IST 34001 – MAP
MAP supports Public Administrations’ employees while citizens contact them in a seamless way.
While an interaction is going on, MAP extracts inputs and performs a semantic analysis on them, immediately providing the employee with shortcuts to solution, reducing the time to answer and increasing the quality of the service.
IST 32320 – KARMA2
The KARMA2 project defines an organisational model to efficiently manage and deliver home-care services to children with brain injuries. KARMA2 co-ordinates and manages all the persons involved in care activities performed in the patients’ home, through an easily accessible, networked infrastructure.
IST 21109 – E-POLL
E-Poll improves the voting process for both electors and administrative authorities at all levels by providing an innovative infrastructure for supporting remote voting based on leading-edge technology.
IST 11696 – ANGELO
Angelo meets the needs of Call Centres as they rapidly evolve into multi-functional contact centres.
Angelo creates bridges between people, infrastructure and processes in the contact centre; it’s versatile architecture empowers contact centre agents, giving them the technology to become effective knowledge workers.
