FIRE publishes a report on how to address societal concerns regarding legal and privacy issues in ICT-related projects

User involvement in project design is currently a trend. In fact, sometimes it is perceived as a panacea to overcome most market failures of R&D results.

Sprint Competition

Sprints are short working cycles to validate proof of concepts of technology concepts, interoperability and trustworthiness. In the sprint approach, a lead partner is responsible for the coherence of the sprints. The lead partner is not necessarily a partner in a sprint. Sprints are 100% financed by industry partners running the sprint. After a sprint is finished, the results are immediately disseminated publicly to a broad audience. In March we organized a sprint competition with the purpose of coming up with the best idea, Trustseed was the winner. View winning Sprint >


The PANOPTESEC project shows early progress following the first Plenary Design Meeting

The PANOPTESEC project, aiming to deliver a beyond-state-of-the-art prototype that will proactively and reactively automatically manage cyber incidents, held a Plenary Design Meeting on 3-5 June at the ACEA facilities in Rome. ACEA, one of the largest Italian companies for energy and water supply, is the user agency of the PANOPTESEC project. The Plenary Design Meeting contributed to the progress of essential components of the operational concepts, design and interfaces. Early results of PANOPTESEC progress were then demonstrated by Alcatel-Lucent at the NATO SAS-106 Symposium on “Analysis Support to Decision Making in Cyber Defence and Security” on 10 June. The PANOPTESEC Technical Project Manager from RHEA was chairing the SAS-106 Symposium session and observed that the early prototype demonstration of technology was very well received by the attendees as a tangible outcome of the project.
