FP7 & H2020 Projects

AGILE (H2020 project)

Participants : Emmanuel Baccelli, Cedric Adjih.

  • Program: H2020 ICT-30-2015 Topic: Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects

  • Project acronym: AGILE

  • Project title: Adoptive Gateways for dIverse muLtiple Environments

  • Duration: 2015-2017

  • Coordinator: Emmanuel Baccelli

  • Other partners: Canonical (UK), Eclipse IoT Foundation (IE), Mobistar (BE), Libelium (ES), Startupbootcamp IoT (SP), CREATE-NET (IT), iMinds (BE), Atos (SP), Rulemotion (UK), Jolocom (DE), Passau University (DE), Sky-Watch (DN), BioAssist (GR), Graz Technical University (AT), Eurotech (IT), IoTango (US).

  • Abstract:

    The AGILE project is a 3-year H2020 project started in January 2016, which will deliver an integrated framework of open source tools and platforms that interoperate for enabling the delivery of adaptive, self-configurable and secure IoT elements (both software and hardware) that can be utilized in a variety of scenarios. Such tools target actors with heterogeneous skills, including entrepreneurs, researchers, and individuals, aiming to enable the realization of IoT applications respecting user privacy and data ownership.

ARMOUR (H2020 project)

Participants : Cedric Adjih, Emmanuel Baccelli, Oliver Hahm.

  • Program: H2020 ICT-12-2015 Topic: Integrating experiments and facilities in FIRE+

  • Project acronym: ARMOUR

  • Project title: Large-Scale Experiments of IoT Security Trust

  • Duration: 2016-2018

  • Coordinator: Serge Fdida (UPMC)

  • Other partners: UPMC (France), Synelixis (Greece), SMA (France), UI (Portugal), JRC (Belgium), EGM (France), OdinS (Spain).

  • Abstract:

    The ARMOUR project is a 2-year H2020 project started in February 2016. The ARMOUR project is aimed at providing duly tested, benchmarked and certified Security & Trust technological solutions for large-scale IoT using upgraded FIRE large scale IoT/Cloud testbeds properly-equipped for Security & Trust experimentations. To this, ARMOUR will: (1) Enhance two outstanding FIRE testbeds (> 2700 nodes;  500 users) with the ARMOUR experimentation toolbox for enabling large-scale IoT Security & Trust experiments; (2) Deliver six properly experimented, suitably validated and duly benchmarked methods and technologies for enabling Security & Trust in the large-scale IoT; and (3) Define a framework to support the design of Secure & Trusted IoT applications as well as establishing a certification scheme for setting confidence on Security & Trust IoT solutions.

Collaborations in European Programs, Except FP7 & H2020


Participants : Aline Carneiro Viana, Emmanuel Baccelli, Eduardo Mucelli.

  • Program: EU CHIST-ERA, topic Context- and Content-Adaptive Communication Networks

  • Project acronym: MACACO

  • Project title: Mobile context-Adaptive CAching for COntent-centric networking

  • Duration: 2013-2016

  • Coordinator: Aline Carneiro Viana

  • Other partners: INPT-ENSEEIHT at University of Toulouse, University of Birmingham (UK), SUPSI (Switzerland), CNR (Italy) and Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil)

  • Abstract:

    MACACO (Mobile context-Adaptive CAching for COntent-centric networking ) is a 3-year CHIST-ERA European Project addressing the topic Context- and Content-Adaptive Communication Networks. It is funded by ANR in France, SNSF in Switzerland, and ESPRC in UK. It focus on data offloading mechanisms that take advantage of context and content information. Our intuition is that if it is possible to extract and forecast the behaviour of mobile network users in the three dimensional space of time, location and interest (i.e. what, when and where users are pulling data from the network), it is possible to derive efficient data offloading protocols. Such protocols would pre-fetch the identified data and cache it at the network edge at an earlier time, preferably when the mobile network is less charged, or offers better quality of service. This project has officially started in November 2013.
