The 'business model'

The business model of the R&D team is based on the self-financing model, therefore a large part of our research activity is based on projects funded by the European Commission through programs such as Horizon 2020, FP7, Connecting Europe Facility and AAL.

In this context we have collaborated closely with hundreds of European companies, universities and public administrations, deepening challenging and heterogeneous application domains such as industry 4.0, e-health, cyber/physical security, augmented reality and others.

In all projects, our role is always linked to activities that involve the use of innovative ICT technologies. Collaboration with some partners has been particularly productive and a common research environment has been created consolidated in various projects.

We are currently actively involved in 26 projects of the Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe program.

Opportunities for young people

The R&D department is very important for young people. Among those who participate in the team's activities, many are under 35 and we always try to invite undergraduates and post-graduates to participate in our projects, to apply them concretely on challenging projects in the field of IT technologies and architectures. These experiences contribute to increasing personal skills, at the same time giving the possibility to elaborate research theses or scientific papers.

The initiatives we collaborate with are oriented to specific areas such as Artificial Intelligence, such as Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision and Data Analysis & Predictive, as well as spanning other application domains.

The projects and collaborations range, in any case, on different levels ranging from the regional experience to the European context. With funding from the Puglia Region, the Eolo project is being implemented, a highly innovative cloud services platform to manage the activities of professionals, freelancers and small professional firms; the purpose of the platform is to support users in their daily activities with tools related to their profession and with the joint help of editorial content relevant to their business.

R&D branches

Maggioli R&D department consist of three main branches:

  • Santarcangelo di Romagna (Italy), is the headquarter, from where we manage all projects at a regional, national and international level. Here are also located the main teams of technical development, that bring innovation and cutting-edge dynamics to the Group thanks to the projects experience;
  • Bari (Italy), branch is mainly focused on the development and management of Eolo project. Also, from here we analyse new possibilities for projects at a regional and national level.
  • Athens (Greece), is primarily focused on national projects in the Greek context and un European projects. Our work here covers all the stages of the project: from the proposal writing to the project administration and technical development.

With a total amount about 100 collaborators, the R&D department has seen a rise in the last few years thanks to the beginning and development of various important research projects with prestigious international partners, with whom we are studying cutting-edge ICT solutions and new ways to employ the most advanced technologies.

EUCAIM Project

The EUCAIM consortium consist of 76 partners from 14 countries. Many partners are part of the “AI for Health Imaging” Network (AI4HI), a cluster of 5 large EU-funded projects on big data and AI in cancer imaging (CHAIMELEON, EUCANIMAGE, INCISIVE, ProCancer-I, PRIMAGE), whose data repositories EUCAIM is building on. The Consortium also involves major European Research Infrastructures, such as Euro-BioImaging, The EUropean Federation for CAncer IMages (EUCAIM) project is a 4-year project with 76 partners from 14 European Union (EU) member states. The EUCAIM project is the cornerstone of the European Cancer Imaging Initiative launched by the European Commission, a flagship of the Europe's Beating Cancer Plan (EBCP) and a major contributor to the European Health Data Space. The project aims to foster innovative data-driven solutions and deploy digital technologies in cancer treatment and care.

EUCAIM will establish and deploy a digital and federated infrastructure of FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) cancer-related, de-identified, imaging data and provide a research platform for the development and benchmarking of AI tools to address unmet precision medicine. The project will address the fragmentation of existing cancer image repositories and establish a distributed (federated) data storage and access infrastructure –an Atlas of Cancer Imaging– with over 60 million anonymised cancer image data from over 100,000 patients, accessible to clinicians, researchers and innovators across the EU for the development and benchmarking of trustworthy AI tools. The infrastructure will be further populated by observational studies from hospitals (21 clinical sites in 12 EU countries), include clinical images and link with pathology, molecular and laboratory data and will be expanded to at least 30 distributed data providers from 15 countries by the end of the 4-year project. Federated AI solutions will be trained at the hospital data warehouses, keeping data privacy.

The EUCAIM project will be built upon the work and progress of the AI for Health Imaging (AI4HI) network, which consists of 5 large EU-funded projects on big data and Artificial Intelligence in cancer imaging: INCISIVE, Chaimeleon, EuCanImage, ProCancer-I and Primage. Therefore, INCISIVE, a project that Maggioli coordinates, will be one of the major contributors to this initiative as one of the repositories that, through the EUCAIM project, will be linked to the infrastructure to be developed and made available by this initiative.

In EUCAIM, MAGGIOLI co-leads the work package on "Data Federation and Interoperability Framework" that will provide the "glue" for the massive cancer imaging and clinical data to be made available through the EUCAIM project. MAGGIOLI also participates in all other major EUCAIM tasks.

RADIOVAL Project

Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer worldwide with continuous rising incidence. Despite the promising therapeutic use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for breast cancer cases, this treatment has been related with variable efficacy and severe side effects. RadioVal (International Clinical Validation of Radiomics Artificial Intelligence for Breast Cancer Treatment Planning) aims to implement the first multi-faceted clinical validation study of radiomics for predicting the response to NAC and developing the first clinically validated and ethically compliant traceability tool for radiomics AI.

This will enable monitoring and continuous evaluation of radiomics tools as well as promote awareness, acceptance and promotion of radiomics AI in future breast cancer care. Wider impact related to clinical deployment of radiomics AI will be sought, such as safer and evidence-based clinical decision support systems, as well as improved diagnosis and response prediction for personalized treatment plan and assessment of health outcomes.
 
RadioVal will be implemented through a multi-stakeholder approach and will utilize digital pathology data and medical image repositories from numerous international clinical sites across Europe, South America, North Africa and Eurasia. The project will also build on the repositories, tools and results developed in the context of the five ongoing EU-funded projects comprising the AI for Health Imaging Network (AI4HI). A standardized and comprehensive methodological framework for multi-faceted radiomics evaluation will be developed based on the FUTURE-AI guidelines and will leverage the FAIR data management principles to achieve high quality standards for the radiomics model.

INCISIVE Project

INCISIVE aims to address three major open challenges in order to explore the full potential of AI solutions in cancer imaging: (1) AI challenges unique to medical imaging, (2) Image labelling and annotation and (3) Data availability and sharing. In order to do that INCISIVE will develop and validate: (1) an AI-based toolbox that enhances the accuracy, specificity, sensitivity, interpretability and cost-effectiveness of existing cancer imaging methods, (2) an automated-ML based annotation mechanism to rapidly produce training data for machine learning research and (3) a pan-European repository federated repository of medical images, that will enable the secure donation and sharing of data in compliance with ethical, legal and privacy demands, increasing accessibility to datasets and enabling experimentation of AI-based solutions.

The INCISIVE models and analytics will utilize various cancer imaging scans, biological data and EHRs, and will be trained with 1 PB of available data provided by 8 partners within the project. INCISIVE solution will be investigated in three validation studies for Lung, Breast, Prostate and Colorectal Cancer, taking place in 8 sites, from 5 countries (Italy, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Serbia), with participation of at least 2,600 patients and a total duration of 1,5 year. INCISIVE moves beyond the state of the art, by improving sensitivity and specificity of lower cost scanning methods, accurately predicting the tumor spread, evolution and relapse, enhancing interpretability of results and “democratizing” imaging data.

Details and Information

ONCORELIEF Project

The burden of cancer is rising globally and is estimated to have reached 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million cancer deaths in 2018. Despite the rising cancer incidence, improvements in early detection and therapeutic treatment have improved cancer survival. As a consequence, the number of cancer survivors is increasing globally, creating the need to improve not only treatment but also wellness and follow‐up care. Cancer treatment often involves combined modalities such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. In the past decades, more effective and targeted therapeutic modalities and less destructive cancer treatments have been developed such as immunotherapy and drug‐targeted therapy. Even so, cancer and its treatment have important physical and psychosocial sequelae.

ONCORELIEF will leverage the above 6 drivers in order to skillfully and methodologically overcome technical challenges, by introducing new approaches that will allow the utilization of big datasets in order to develop a user-centered AI System to facilitate the integration of QoL assessment instruments through the use of PROMs and PREMs in order to improve post-treatment health status, increase the wellbeing, and follow‐up care of cancer patients. This will be achieved through an intuitive smart digital assistant (Guardian Angel), able to provide personalized support in post-treatment activities and tasks, suggest actions regarding the patients’ overall health-status, improved wellbeing and active health-care and ultimately maintain him/her engaged on a wellness journey that will safeguard his/her health over the foreseeable prolonged post-cancer treatment period.

Details and Information

POSITIVE project

POSITIVE aims at designing, building and commercializing a digital platform for healthy, mobile seniors to prevent future cognitive and physical decline. The platform tackles the problem of growing loneliness and apathy amongst seniors, caused not necessarily by social isolation resulting from immobility but by a lack of meaningful connections and a clear purpose in life. Seniors desire to be not only consumers but also creators. This frequently overlooked fact creates a disconnect between what seniors want and what society and companies offer them. To alleviate that, POSITIVE is designed to address self-actualization needs of seniors.

POSITIVE consists of online (a) physical events facilitation, and (b) content. Both parts are co-created and sustained by the end users – seniors. The events are led by seniors or external organizations and have a personalized broad range from educational topics, through discussion clubs to organizing startups. Content part includes possibilities to share knowledge, learn, track health and be entertained. In order to differentiate itself from other offers, POSITIVE leverages technology and close user design (e.g., psychology-based gamification) in all services.

CARERSUPPORT Project

CarerSupport integrated, deployed and tested an integrated ICT platform enabling the participation and collaboration of informal carers, psychologists and health professionals towards facilitating the training, learning, orientation, and psychological support. In particular, the project deployed and offered to informal carers:

  1. Training, learning and orientation programmes, including general-purpose training programmes and programmes that emphasize on the carers’ digital skills. The former includes introductory blended-learning programmes emphasizing on the needs of elderly, and on how to plan and perform the most common care-related activities. The latter enables carers to use and fully leverage ICT based solutions for active ageing and social inclusion.
  2. Psychological support services, aiming at alleviating the stress of informal carers, while at the same time providing them with emotional support. It includes social support services, services facilitating carers to discharge their role, services alleviating stress and boosting mental health, as well as services that minimize or eliminate smoking and drinking. The support provided facilitates carers to deal with their own sorrow and sense of impending loss.
  3. Collaboration services, which emphasize communication and experience sharing between formal and informal carers. The main goal of these services is to achieve knowledge transfer from experienced formal carers to the (usually) less experienced informal carers. As part of those services synchronous services for advice and handling/dealing with emergencies are provided.

CarerSupport was piloted with the participation of 200 informal carers, formal carers and stakeholders in 7 different pilot sites from 4 European countries (Italy, Norway, Romania and Switzerland).

Details and Information

SOCIABLE Project

SOCIABLE piloted a radically new ICT based approach for integrated support of mental activity, as well as boosting of social interaction for individuals that have been diagnosed to suffer from mild dementia. SOCIABLE integrated human support and care services offered by care centers and specialized/expert operators (e.g., geriatric internist, geriatric psychiatrist, neurologist, neuropsychologist), with state-of-the-art ICT infrastructure and independent living technologies.

This new approach was build upon three tested technological pillars, which had proven therapeutical value, namely:

  • a novel perceptive mixed reality interfaces based on multi-touch surfaces
  • an open platform for cognitive training games development, which allows the flexible creation and customization of cognitive training games, and “profiling” and social “matching” capabilities boosting social networking and interaction between aged individuals

SOCIABLE was piloted with the participation of 350 senior citizens in 7 different pilot sites from 4 European countries (Greece, Italy, Norway and Spain).

Overall, SOCIABLE integrated, deployed and operated an innovative ICT-enabled online service for assessing and accordingly reinforcing the mental state of the elderly through pleasant gaming activities for cognitive training, while at the same time boosting their social networking and activating their day-to-day interpersonal interactions. SOCIABLE was envisaged as a service with high potential for societal impact that could add significant value to current service offerings of care services providers. Furthermore, it was associated with a clear business potential for sustainability and wider use by care service providers within (but also outside of) the SOCIABLE consortium.

Details and Information

Tec4MaasSEs project

Tec4MaaSEs’ core idea is to deploy a network of Digital Twins (DT), equipped with trustworthiness and cognition, to co-operate in a distributed manner within a value network as core enablers of Manufacturing-as-a-Service (MaaS) practices. For this to become materialized, adaptable and actionable, several techniques must be brought it, with collaborative optimisation methods assuming a major role, along with analytics, simulation and event processing. Tec4MaaSEs advances also research trends like situation-aware manufacturing systems and DTs by lifting technical barriers related to standardisation and governance. Tech4MaaSEs provides an overall framework for value networks, where processes, stakeholders and resources could be modelled as interconnected DTs. This allows for the design of strategies and actions required to further enhance resilience and circularity along the entire value network.

The proposed framework is complemented with a dynamic reference library that uses semantics and models resources and capabilities of the registered providers for each business case. The overall performance is continuously evaluated and monitored via a multilevel balanced scorecard framework. The framework is configurable and capable of responding to varying supply and demand of individual actors within the value network. It allows then for the evaluation of alternatives and the adequate reaction and better understanding of the impact of external disrupting events within the industrial process. Tec4MaaSEs is customized to be instantiated in the three pilot cases. Measurements are collected to assess the performance of the technical solution and to evaluate how the digitalization of the processes fosters a more resilient value network.

Details and Information

PLOOTO project

The constantly increasing demand of scarce resources and critical raw materials (CRMs), requires efficient usage of resources - reuse and recycling of materials- and responsible waste management and prevention. The circular economy’s model establishes a virtuous cycle where products and resources can be reused, repurposed and recycled to maximize productivity of resources, to reduce waste and by products that can become raw materials (RMs) entering in other industrial processes, thus reducing the depletion of natural resources and the overall environmental effects on climate change. Plooto aims to deliver a Circular and Resilient Information System (CRIS) to support manufacturers in their green, digital and circular transition. CRIS enables waste reduction and end-to-end traceability of Secondary Raw Materials (SRM) through interconnected digital services for real-time decision making, monitoring and certification of materials and products.

Plooto delivers: a) a transformation framework based on traceability strategies for materials/products per business case, with reference processes for SRM use from waste deposit to new products, and governance models for circular value chains; b) ICT tools for modelling product, production processes and supply chains, as an aggregation of individual component Digital Twins with cognition capabilities (cognitive Digital Twins – CDTs); c) Data will feed RM-recovery and waste dataspaces allowing the provision of material certification and product passport; and d) A circular sustainability balanced scorecard (framework+toolkit) to assess impact of decisionmaking at CDT level based on various KPIs. The solution will be piloted in three different circular supply chains demonstrating waste reduction, reusability of scrap and production by-products, operational improvement.

Details and Information

ENERMAN project

ENERMAN envisions the factory as a living organism that can manage its energy consumption in an autonomous way. It will create an energy sustainability management framework collecting data from the factory and holistically process them to create dedicated energy sustainability metrics. These values will be used to predict energy trends using industrial processes, equipment and energy cost models. ENERMAN will deliver an autonomous, intelligent decision support engine that will evaluate the predicted trends and access if they match predefined energy consumption sustainability KPIs. If the KPIs are not met, ENERMAN will suggest and implement changes in energy affected production lines control processes: an energy aware flexible control loop on various factory processes will be deployed.

The ENERMAN administrators will be able to use the above mechanisms in order to identify how future changes in the production lines can impact energy sustainability using the ENERMAN prediction engine (based on digital twins) to visualize possible sustainability results when in-factory changes are made in equipment, production line. The ENERMAN digital twin will predict the economic cost of the consumed energy based on the collected and predicted Energy Peak load tariff, Renewable Energy System self-production, the variations in demand response, possible virtual generation and prosumer aggregation. Finally, ENERMAN considers the operators actions within the production chain as part of a factory’s energy fingerprint since their activity within the factory impacts the various production lines. In ENERMAN, we include a training mechanism with suggested personnel good practices for energy sustainability improvement through the production lines. Current and predicted energy consumption/sustainability trends on specific assets of the factory are collected and visualized in a Virtual, eXtended reality model of the factory to enhance the situational energy awareness of the factory personnel.

Details and Information

Il Progetto LAZARUS

LAZARUS is a three-year research and innovation project that aims to heal many of the security issues that befall modern software during its development lifecycle. The recently introduced area of DevSecOps - in medium to large companies - unfortunately lacks automated security tools, while most existing solutions are targeting only one narrow step of the SDLC process but miss a much needed holistic overview of the global security solution. LAZARUS innovates by intervening in multiple steps of the SDLC, performing targeted security checks and collecting valuable information and intelligence from each step, and exploiting advanced ML and AI methods to convert this intelligence into actionable insights and recommendations.

The main innovations of LAZARUS are illustrated in the figure below. Moreover, we provide advanced features for developers, that employing our tools would be able to deploy more intelligent and distributed solutions through dedicated APIs. LAZARUS follows an open-source approach for the core functionality, which is supported by a realistic and viable business model for the sustainability and further exploitation of the project after it reaches the end of this financing phase.

UNICORN project

UNICORN aims to simplify the design, deployment and management of secure and elastic – by design – multi-cloud services. This will be achieved by i) development and design libraries that will provide security enforcement mechanisms, data privacy restrictions, monitoring metric collection and resource management across multiple cloud sites; ii) enabling continuous orchestration and automatic optimization of portable and dynamic cloud services running on virtual instances or micro-execution containers for increased security, data protection privacy and vast resource (de)allocation.

Towards this end, and building upon this umbrella concept, the UNICORN vision can be considered two-fold: to enable software developers to design and develop secure and elastic applications and to increase the awareness of all stakeholders, in particular SMEs and Startups. UNICORN will reduce software release time and provide a powerful tool for SMEs to improve software design and continuous productivity enhancement.

Details and Information

METICOS project

METICOS aims to introduce Big Data Analysis of border control information systems, in order to provide a step-change towards more modern and efficient Smart Border management and towards gaining societal and political acceptance of modern control technologies of EU borders such as “no gate solutions”. It is therefore positioned as an initiative to create a real-time decision-support system with regard to different Smart Border control technologies that empowers two major stakeholder groups within the European border control sector (i.e., travellers and border control authorities & service providers) to ensure user acceptance, secure positive societal impact and maximize border control process efficiency.

To this end, the METICOS project will develop a platform that integrates information systems and networks of data sources in order to validate the efficiency and users acceptance of border control technologies like fingerprint and iris scanners. The proposed platform will provide metrics and KPIs to authorities and decision makers, based on a number of independent variables: performance expectancy, effort expectancy, facilitating conditions, physical privacy, accuracy, information privacy, ethical and societal perceptions. METICOS will be demonstrated and validated under real operating conditions. This will involve two pilot implementations executed at five different countries involving real travellers and staff.

Details and Information

UP2030 project

UP2030 aims to guide cities through the socio-technical transitions required to meet their climate neutrality ambitions. It will do so by enabling a quantum leap from a ´business as usual´, project-by-project decarbonisation approach to a vision-driven, strategy-based approach that is anchored on sound projects and renewed policy development.

The approach uses urban planning and design as a vehicle to create better connected, more compact, net-zero neighbourhoods in the city pilots – i.e. neighbourhoods that promote liveability and, through designing with intent, promote mitigation action. Unlike fragmented innovation processes that focus on the deployment of a specific solution to achieve incremental progress, UP2030 proposes that cities should themselves be at the centre of the innovation approach to drive transformative change.

The project develops the 5UP methodological framework that supports cities in:

  • UP-dating those policies, codes, regulations that need to be left behind to make room for the new vision;
  • UP-skilling, through building the capacities of the entire city stakeholder ecosystem that shall deliver actions;
  • UP-grading, through the development of solution prototypes (digital and physical) at selected neighbourhoods; 
  • UP-scaling to achieve city-wide impact by shaping the enabling governance arrangements and matching project portfolios to financial resources;
  • UP-taking, by engaging with the Mission and sharing best practices across European cities. Inclusive participation is key throughout the project’s full cycle of activities so that real needs of communities are reflected in the city-specific visions, and co-designed interventions maximise delivery of co-benefits. As such, UP2030 will (a) have a measured positive impact on spatial justice in the pilots, and (b) give the opportunity to citizens to participate in the transition by becoming agents of change themselves through their sustainable behavioural shifts.

Details and Information

EVOLVED-5G project

The intense ongoing work towards 5G readiness has reached the point where the performance gains provided by 5G infrastructures should be exploited by third party innovators and SMEs, to create a new, open and dynamic ecosystem from both technology and marketing perspectives. Towards the materialization of the 5G performance gains at application and market level, key contributions are expected by the domain of design and development of Network Application (NetApp). In this context, EVOLVED-5G endorses the vision where the world of NetApps follows the paradigm of mobile applications hosted in a related market place.

Moreover, the EVOLVED-5G project will contribute towards the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0. Recognized as one of the major vertical industries by 5G-PPP (referring to the digital evolving of workspaces), Industry 4.0 brings innovative use cases, yet technologically challenging, and create a fertile environment for SME-driven entrepreneurship, where new use case-tailored functions (as NetApps) can be provided to compose a digitalized, secure, and automated generation of the industrial operations (mainly referring to functions for process and machine control as well as procedures for advanced product lifecycle management). The industry-oriented EVOLVED-5G NetApps will be tested, validated, and certified in a vendor-agnostic experimentation platform, and progressively define the first set of NetApps that the EVOLVED-5G marketplace will host.

Il progetto DigiGear

DigiGEAR introduces augmented reality (AR) technologies into the VET sector, with a focus on the Automotive Engineering industries, focusing on the industry gaps and the emerging skills of the sector. We aim to provide an innovative and engaging learning experience, while also addressing the skills gap and digital transformation needs of the industries.

The use of AR technologies in education has been growing rapidly in recent years. Many car manufacturers, including Volkswagen, Audi, and BMW, have made use of AR scenarios in their training programs, which have shown improved learning outcomes and engagement as indicated by MDPI – Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute on the Annual Report named after Augmented and AR senarios (AR) for Education and Training in the AEC Industry: A Systematic Review of Research and Applications. As highlighted, by introducing these technologies into the VET sector, we believe we can provide learners with a more immersive learning experience that will help them to acquire technical skills more effectively, and thus indicating the demand in exploring new ways of teaching reform through AR technologies.

The Automotive Engineering industries are facing significant skills shortages and digital transformation challenges as indicated by Behzadan on V.R. Enabling discovery-based learning using telepresent augmented reality. By equipping learners with the digital and technical knowledge they need, we can help build a more resilient and competitive workforce. AR provides a risk-free environment for learning by simulating an actual environment. AR literacy aims to help students visualize and understand complex spatial arrangements, which usually deform or move under external actions. Additionally, visual-aided design tools are beneficial for enhancing the learning ability of students for interior and exterior activity as well as making appropriate design decisions, as teaching contents are well visualized using AR-based teaching aids. The project has the potential to make a significant impact in the VET sector introducing the AR platform as a complement to the traditional classroom-based training. It could also be used by employers to provide on-the-job training to new employees, or by individuals looking to develop their technical skills outside of a formal education setting.

MOTIVATE XR

MOTIVATE XR project

XR has the potential to revolutionize various industrial sectors by offering more engaging, secure, and inclusive training and assistance for complex tasks thus enabling more people to acquire the skills required to perform such tasks. However, the creation of such XR experiences is still overly complex, time consuming, and expensive thus blocking their wide adoption in industrial sectors that do not have the necessary expertise nor the resources to create and deploy them.

The main objective of MOTIVATE XR is to create a world’s leading XR collaborative authoring, publishing, and experiencing tool suite for training and assistance to industrial operations such as the assembly, manufacturing, maintenance, and dismantlement, of industrial goods. This ground-breaking, open, tightly integrated, and highly interoperable solution will be designed for, and usable by a wide range of users without programming skills, from the largest European industrials to handymen, without requiring software development skills.

It will offer an end-to-end solution to streamline the whole authoring and experiencing workflow thanks to novel portable 3D scanning and digital twin modelling solutions, No-Code authoring approaches and ground-breaking XR experiencing tools, including a next-gen European XR smart headset, all assisted by the latest advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI).

It will then evaluate its result in five complementary and ambitious pilots in different industrial sectors including aerospace, home appliance, aluminium, electric distribution, and hybrid human-robot industries. For this purpose, our project will involve a complementary group of the best-in-class European experts and leading industries adopting a user-centric methodology coordinated by an SSH expert to ensure proper consideration of societal, ethical, and legal issues and ethical use of XR and AI technologies.

AGORA

AGORA project

The AGORA project is a research and educational programme of doctoral studies which aims to train the next generation of Metaverse researchers and practitioners who will be able to address the ecosystem challenges identified, and co-create new knowledge and solutions across sectors and industries. This is possible thanks to the close collaboration between academic and non-academic beneficiaries and associated partners, that promises to lead to superior understanding and potential, drawing from academic excellence and hands on industrial insights. The AGORA research components will set the theoretical framework and the research path for going beyond the technical understanding of the Metaverse to explore its business and social value and address potential unintended consequences within the broader societal context. The project’s high-level conceptual framework depicts the complexity of the Metaverse ecosystem where we show how requirements and challenges across three pillars, namely users, technology, and businesses, are in practice intertwined, thus highlighting the need for taking an integrated, ecosystem-focused approach on this phenomenon.

AGORA encapsulates a cross-level approach aiming to a mutual understanding of Metaverses’ value for businesses, policy makers, software developers, business incubators, intermediaries, users and market actors. Therefore, the AGORA project has significant potential for supporting the careers and personal development of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), and for strengthening the EU’s competitiveness in a highly impactful domain that is the Metaverse. In light of the fierce competition in the metaverse space for talent, the AGORA programme will ensure that European companies, research centres, policy makers and other stakeholders have access to such talent and thus support the European ambition for sovereignty in this industry.

VOXReality

VOXReality project

VOX is an ambitious project whose goal will be to facilitate and exploit the convergence of two important technologies, natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision (CV). Both technologies are experiencing a huge performance increase due to the emergence of data-driven methods, specifically machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). On the one hand, CV/ML are driving the extended reality (XR) revolution beyond what was possible up to now, and, on the other, speech-based interfaces and text-based content understanding are revolutionising human-machine and human-human interaction.

VOX will employ an economical approach to combine these two. VOX will pursue the integration of language- and vision-based AI models with either unidirectional or bidirectional exchanges between the two modalities. Vision systems drive both AR and VR, while language understanding adds a natural way for humans to interact with the back-ends of XR systems or create multimodal XR experiences combining vision and sound.

The results of the project will be twofold:

  • a set of pretrained next-generation XR models combining, in various levels and ways, language and vision AI and enabling richer, more natural immersive experiences that are expected to boost XR adoption;
  • a set of applications using these models to demonstrate innovations in various sectors.
The above technologies will be validated through three use cases:
  • Personal Assistants that are an emerging type of digital technology that seeks to support humans in their daily tasks, with their core functionalities related to human-to-machine interaction;
  • Virtual Conferences that are completely hosted and run online, typically using a virtual conferencing platform that sets up a shared virtual environment, allowing their attendees to view or participate from anywhere in the world;
  • Theaters where VOX will combine language translation, audiovisual user associations and AR VFX triggered by predetermined speech.

Details and Information

EBRIDGES project

BRIDGES aims to support and boost the pan-European interactive technologies industry and contribute to “bridging” the gap between interactive technologies and industry, through the development of a holistic solution for (remote and co-located) group interaction in room-scale immersive mixed reality (or eXtended Reality – XR) environments that blend the physical and virtual space. The BRIDGES solution is based on an existing platform, the Immersive Deck, which will be further researched and developed into a turn-key product with widespread applicability that may act as a stimulus for the uptake of interactive technologies by industry.

BRIDGES will focus on the areas of training and informal learning, culture, and entertainment, as it is widely recognized that immersive XR is an extremely promising tool for the enhancement of a user’s experience in these areas, and an optimal medium for achieving enhanced performance, engagement, a high level of effectiveness, and the transfer of skills and knowledge into the real world. To ensure widespread uptake, within BRIDGES, we will be carrying out extensive and comprehensive studies to validate the proposed solution “in-the-wild”, i.e. in the real world settings of major international airports in Germany and Greece for training firefighters and first responders, and in a highly visited informal educational and cultural center – museum in Greece, for enhancing the learning and recreational experience of visitors. The extensive validation effort undertaken by BRIDGES is expected to lead to the short-term commercial deployment of the BRIDGES end-results in the specific domains addressed by the project pilots, but also to provide replicability recommendations and scale-up guidelines for deploying the resulting XR platform in other industrial and entertainment domains, in the longer term.

Details and Information

CSSBOOST project

CSSBoost aims to overcome technological and non-technological CE barriers, minimise CSS application and operational risks and decisively stimulate and maximise the Circular Economy and Bioeconomy Transition in any EU city/region or group of regions. To pursue this, CSSBoost develops a novel CSS Application Framework that views a CSS as a composite living entity that operates and evolves within a CE/CSS Ecosystem and Market, an open (physical) space of city, regional or multi-regional scope, encompassing an
area’s existing CE market, its value chains and its entire external environment, even extra-regional entities and markets. It also introduces the methodological concept of the CSSBoost Integrated Solution that involves the integration of one or more CSS within a digital environment, enhanced by tailored methodology and procedures.

This physical system is virtualised, monitored, analysed and assessed by developing the key CSSBoost innovation, the Virtual Regional CE/CSS Ecosystem and Market (VCEM). CSSBoost designs a set of diverse Exemplary CSSs, both as transition tools and to validate and promote its ideas by applying and demonstrating them in five city, regional and interregional Pilot Cases. The exemplary CSSs respond to different challenges, barriers, needs and feasibilities across EU and target different product value chains, as delineated in the EU’s Circular Economy Action Plan (Water, Food, and Nutrients; Plastics; Batteries & Vehicles). CSSBoost develops both its innovations and pilots by applying a rigorous SotA co-creation environment and instruments and SSH methods and procedures. It also develops replication, organisational, business and exploitation plans for the uptake, replication and upscaling of its solutions, as well as education and training programs and social innovation actions.

TREEADS project

DRYADS aims to build upon state-of-the-art high TRL products and unite them in a holistic Fire Management platform that optimize and reuse per phase the available Socio-technological Resources in all three main phases of Wildfires. For the prevention and preparedness DRYADS propose the use of a real-time risk evaluation tool that can receive multiple classification inputs and work with a new proposed neural network-powered Risk factor indicator. To create a model of Fire adapted communities (FAC) in parallel to insurance incentives, DRYADS will use alkali activated construction materials (AAM) integrating post-wildfires wood ashes (PWA) for fire-resilient buildings and infrastructure.

DRYADS also uses a variety of technological solutions such as the Copernicus infrastructure, and a swarm of small drones customized for accurate forest supervision. In the area of Detection DRYADS propose a variety of toolsets that will accommodate most needs. Stemming from Virtual reality for the training, wearables for the protective equipment of the emergency responders. to UAV (drones), UAG and airships for improving capacity in temporal and spatial analysis as well as to increase the inspected area coverage.. Last, DRYADS will build a new land and field-based restoration initiative that will use all modern techniques such as agroforestry, drones for seed spread, Internet of things sensors that will be able to adapt the seeding process based on the ground needs and on the same time with the help of AI to determine post-fire risks factors. DRYADS solution will be demonstrated and validated under real operating conditions. Demonstration will involve Eight complex pilot implementations executed in seven EU countries and in Taiwan.
