CISTER has successfully participated in the submission of 6 project proposals for the recent H2020 calls ICT-01-2016 (Smart Cyber-Physical Systems) and FETPROACT-01-2016 (FET Proactive: emerging themes and communities, disruptive information technologies). The first call targets the challenge of designing and implementing highly distributed and connected digital technologies embedded in increasingly Smart Cyber Physical Systems. The latter call targets new directions of knowledge and skills, fostering the emergence of new technologies.
CISTER participation in these highly competitive calls is a great achievement with credits to all CISTER members. One of the proposals is led by CISTER, being the unit work package leader in 4 other proposals. Altogether, the proposals consider a total effort of 498 PMs and a requested budget of about 2.7 M Euros. Technically, the proposals cover various CPS-related topics including parallel computing, timing analysis (static and probabilistic), runtime monitoring and verification, and middlewares. Proposals consortium’s include companies such as Airbus IG, Bosch, GMV, IBM, Intecs, Softeam, Thales, and reputed research centers and universities such as Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, Fortiss, Ikerlan, Inria, and UPC.
