  • Name: NESSoS – Network of Excellence on Engineering Secure Future Internet Software Services and Systems

  • URL: http://www.nessos-project.eu


  • Defi: Trustworthy ICT

  • Instrument: Network of Excellence (NoE)

  • Related activities: §  6.8

  • Period: [October 2010 - March 2014]

  • Partners: Atos Origin (Spain), CNR (Italy) [coordinator], ETH Zürich (Switzerland), IMDEA Software (Spain), Inria (teams MiMove, CASSIS, and TRISKELL), KU Leuven (Belgium), LMU München (Germany), Siemens AG (Germany), SINTEF (Norway), University Duisburg-Essen (Germany), Universidad de Malaga (Spain), Università degli studi di Trento (Italy).

The Network of Excellence NESSoS on "Engineering Secure Future Internet Software Services and Systems" aims at constituting and integrating a long lasting research community on engineering secure software-based services and systems. The NESSoS engineering of secure software services is based on the principle of addressing security concerns from the very beginning in system analysis and design, thus contributing to reduce the amount of system and service vulnerabilities and enabling the systematic treatment of security needs through the engineering process. In light of the unique security requirements exposed by the Future Internet, new results are achieved by means of an integrated research, as to improve the necessary assurance level and to address risk and cost during the software development cycle in order to prioritize and manage investments.

Collaborations in European Programs, except FP7

EIT ICT Labs 3cixty

Participant : Animesh Pathak [correspondent] .

  • Name: 3cixty – A Platform for Apps and Services that Offer Comprehensive Views of a City

  • URL: http://www.3cixty.com/

  • Period: [January 2014 - December 2015]

  • Partners: Ambientic (F), CEFRIEL (IT), DFKI (DE) [coordinator], Eurecom (F) [associate leader], Fondazione Politechnico di Milano (IT), Innovalor (NL), Inria MiMove [associate leader], LocaliData (ES), Mobidot (NL), Politechnico di Milano (IT), Telecom Italia (IT) [associate leader], Thales (F), TU Delft (NL), UC London (UK).

3cixty is a platform, well motivated in business terms, for developing apps for city visitors that makes it easy for application developers to access and process comprehensive heterogeneous information about a city; and a Showcase App using the platform that demonstrates its added value. The project will result new opportunities to enable city visitors to exploit the transportation, business, cultural, and touristic opportunities offered by a city more fully and in a more personally and environmentally appropriate way, thereby benefiting cities, their visitors, and application and service developers.
